The profit margins on Usenet aren't big for us and most money directly flows to our investments in hardware.

After 3month's we anonymise the data (removing your IP) andgrouping it in our statistics.
Yes, a header-platform is expensive and we want to treat everyone the sameby letting them pay for what they use. So by doing more header traffic you support the maintenance costs we have for this. :)
Please contact support and explain what you ordered/wanted to order. We'll fixit manually for you. :)
Yes, we remove illegal content when reported. This can be applied trough our NTD-form at https://usenet.farm/ntd.html
It should get queued to get activated once your current payment expires, there are two exceptions to this:
We have a cluster that can contain approx 75 days of full retention data. This cluster contains data we receive through peering (more on that later) and postings from our customers. We have another cluster that we use to refeed populair articles. This cluster can hold around 500 days of cached-retention.
We do have peering with other (big) usenet providers and this was limited to 400KB articles but currently (since 2017) we process the full usenet feed.
Oh my, that's not intentional! We try to reply to every ticket in +- 24hours. If we haven't replied in 24 hours it sounds there might have happended something wrong between your email and our ticket system.

You don't, as we have no automatic recurring payments. When you don't pay us we won't bill you. Regarding your account: it remains active and after +- 1month all your traffic details are removed and the account remains available for future use.
For the To The Max (TTM) and Block-products we offer the possibility you share your account with friends (saving you money as you can buy Usenet access together).
Below is an overview of the amount of people that can use Usenet at the same time with the same account.
|Product||User limit||Max Conns||Explanation|
|Stingy||1||40||Sorry, only you.|
|To the Max (TTM)||2||40||You and a buddy of you|
NOTE: Please be aware that max conns is the maximum of connections you can have together. I.e. for TTM 40 conns would mean you can use 20 and your friend the remaining 20. (20+20=40)
