Get unfiltered access to the Usenet with to 250 GB of high-speed volume per month at up to 800 Mbit/s and free flat rate with up to 2.000 kbit/s after that. For security purposes, 256-bit SSL encryption included. Six server farms provide speed and data integrity.

UseNeXT is a tool that can be used to browse the UseNeXT forum and to download files from it. Now, UseNeXT forum is very big, with a lot of uploads which include a variety of content.
To access the contents, you need to create a free account on UseNeXT, which will be valid for 14 days. But for that, you need to pay 1euro to confirm your PayPal account. I'd recommend first to download and run the program; it will show a dialog box to enter your account name and password. Select the necessary options to create a trial account, by entering your email ID. It will send you the trial ID and password, which will be valid for 14 days or 1GB download.

The program is very small, about 2 or 3 MB. It shows the different newsgroups organized according to type:music, texts or books, videos, etc. There are a lot of servers you can choose from. It is available in the “Manage Newsgroups” section. It shows the size or the contents in the server.

You can search for the program or file you need. Since it is like a forum, all uploads contain comments from a lot of people. This is good, because unlike Rapidshare, you can be sure that the file you download is actually the one you need. Rating for the post/upload is also available.

The download manager is quite efficient and has a scheduler. A chat client is also integrated into the program. You can chat with others, who can help you find the file you are looking for.

FreeZone is a separate section where you can find all the content provided by the UseNeXT community using the UseNeXT upload function. Here, you can download the contents without any loss in the download volume or quota.

One thing to remember is that almost all the file-sharing community is sharing illegal contents like cracks of different programs and games, copyrighted movies.
