NetZero Returns With Free 4G Offer
March 19, 2012 by staff
NetZero Returns With Free 4G Offer, It’s like the late 1990s all over again: PC gamers are hacking away in Sanctuary, Billy Crystal just hosted the 84th Academy Awards, and NetZero is now offering free Internet access again. The only thing we’re missing is the Netscape browser and a Friends reunion, which for some may be a good thing.
United Online said on Monday that it has launched a 4G Mobile Broadband service under the NetZero Wireless label. Currently it’s available only in 80 cities nationwide including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Miami. Customers aren’t required to sign a contract, but they are required to purchase the NetZero 4G HotSpot ($99.95) or the NetZero 4G Stick ($49.95). The NetZero 4G HotSpot simultaneously supports up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including iPads and other tablets, within a 150-foot range.
“NetZero is bridging the digital divide by letting consumers purchase a secure, quality, mobile broadband service at very affordable prices with plans designed to meet the consumers’ data needs,” said Mark R. Goldston, chairman, president and CEO of United Online. “Our service gives customers the freedom to take the Internet anywhere in our coverage area, without being tied to public Wi-Fi service or having to purchase higher-cost, sometimes multi-year plans offered by other mobile broadband providers. With NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband, there are no contracts or commitments, and our customers can even try our service for up to one year for free.”
Unfortunately, NetZero’s Free service doesn’t mirror its highly-popular dial-up offering in the late 1990s — customers aren’t required to watch ads in return for unlimited free access. Customers get a maximum of 200 MB per month which is good for checking email and maybe pulling up a web page or two a few times a month. Once that 200 MB has dried up, users can’t get additional data until the next month’s allotment arrives… unless they upgrade to a paid plan, of course.
