Do the credits expire after a month?

No! The credits last forever. This allows you to truly pay only for what you use.

What is counted towards my downloads?

All article bodies are counted towards your credits.

20% of your headers are counted towards your credits on our Pay By Download plans.

This means that if you download 10MB of headers, 2MB will be deducted from your credits.

I am a modem or broadband user. Is this plan suited for me?

This plan is suitable for both modem and broadband users. No matter what speeds you are connected to the internet, you only pay for what you download.

What are the advantages of the Pay-by-Download plans over the Unlimited Plans?

The Pay-by-Download plans allows you to maximize the value of your money spent. As the credits never expire, it allows you to download from our servers at your own pace.

Unlike the Unlimited plans, the Pay-by-Download plans do not limit your connection speed and allow for a massive 50 concurrent connections! This allows you total freedom to download at the maximum allowable speed of your connection.

This plan is best suited as a "fill server" or for users that download heavily but don't download on a daily basis.
