The Usenet is a worldwide network that was developed parallel to the Internet. Its main focus is on the information exchange of a multitude of subjects, organized in so called newsgroups.
Even though an Internet connection is necessary to access the Usenet, it is a stand-alone platform.
You can find more information about the Usenet for example at Wikipedia.
