NewsDemon 15th Anniversary Special Week Four! Final Week!
We are in the home stretch of our month long celebration of our 15th Anniversary! In our final week of celebration, we look back to 2015. This year was filled with lots of great innovations that helped people around the world. Bill Gates helped build a machine that turns poop into potable water. A shoe was invented so that people with disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy can put their own shoes on. A tattoo that helps diabetics track their blood sugar. Bitcoin was worth about $300 per coin (should have bought). Apple Pay was launched. Periscope too. And a Nigerian Prince died and left all of us a lot of money...unbelievably, we all had it happen to us by more than one Nigerian Prince...multiple times. Who knew Nigeria had so many Princes and why are they all dying? Here you can see what the NewsDemon website looked like in 2015. NewsDemon Circa ~2015 In 2015 we had about 2400 days of retention. Worldwide bandwidth prices continued to fall. A connection between the USA and EU which used to be filled with latency was starting to reach acceptable latency levels. As we continued to experiment with pricing (matching competitors or to maintain ground in an increasingly competitive marketplace) an unlimited account was down to $13 (from $18 in 2010). Consumers were speaking with their wallets and their desires were easy for us to decipher. So in this final week of specials we are resuming what was our most popular plan this year (Seven Months Unlimited + VPN for $15). We are also launching a 6TB Non-Expiring Block for $15! You can click here for the deals page: https://premium.newsdemon.com/usenet_anniversary/
$29.95 for 12 Months Unlimited Access + VPN
$3/Month for Unlimited Access + VPN
6TB Block for $15 (non-expiring) + One Month VPN Access
$15 for 7 Months of Unlimited Access + VPN
All of these non-block accounts renew at same price until you cancel. We are price matching all these deals at our NewsgroupDirect website. We know we will get a lot of price match requests, so we are just going to go ahead and list them on our price match page here: https://newsgroupdirect.com/usenet-deals Over the first three weeks of our celebration we have roughly as many customers take the price match at NewsgroupDirect as we have the direct sale at NewsDemon. We are very happy the NewsgroupDirect product has become so popular. We also continue to have the free "Covid" server at NewsgroupDirect. Details can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/usenet/comments/g3pets/free_unlimited_newsgroupdirect_access_during/
I still remember the early days. The excitement of figuring out how to connect to the internet. I remember going to the newsstand to buy magazines with lists of websites to visit (at that time search engines were not popular and there was no Google). Then the excitement of newsgroups, emails, FTP servers, building your first website, then building blogs, etc. Last time I was excited about the internet was with Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. It has been now a few years that I just spend time online browsing social media, posting messages, etc. Pretty boring. Anything exciting out there in term of technology online?
