How can I switch between flat-rate and high-speed downloads?



With usenet.nl, you can decide at any time whether you want to download with PowerMode or EcoMode. Depending on the desired download speed, the following settings must be stored in the client:

PowerMode (maximum download speed):

  • Newsserver: power.usenet.nl
  • Port: 119/443 for unencrypted connections or port 563 for SSL connections
  • Your user name (unf-xxxxxxxxxxx-xxx)
  • Your password

EcoMode (with up to 2,000 kbit/s):

  • Newsserver: eco.usenet.nl
  • Port: 119/443 for unencrypted connections or port 563 for SSL connections
  • Your user name (unf-xxxxxxxxxxx-xxx)
  • Your password

If you use the usenet.nl client, you have to click on the "speedometer" symbol on the right to switch from PowerMode to EcoMode.
