The rate structure is as follows: - First 35 hours of usage a month is free, - $1.99 for each hour of additional usage. Note: Starting April 15, 2001, Users will get a pop-up message box with the fee information. They must accept the new terms before using the service. So, it is true that free ISP is done away with. I know that this sucks, especially since you are billed by hour and do not have unlimited access unlike most other competitive offers out there. They just found that it was not profitable to offer free ISP (in fact cost money).
