Similar to AOL, MSN, and EarthLink, NetZero is a longstanding Internet service provider. Initially, the main focus of the business was on its dial-up services, which including popular free service options that came with usage limits. While the ISP still provides reliable dial-up services, the company has primarily shifted to an emphasis on its broadband and wireless services.
NetZero also offers a free plan with its wireless services in keeping with the company's long-standing reputation for offering some free service option to both home and business customers. All high-speed plans from NetZero include the fastest surfing speeds available, free Norton anti-virus protection, email with spam protection, and nationwide access.
Wireless plans start with free 1-Mbit connections and continue with paid plans offering more substantial data storage options. In order to receive the free plan, however, you'll need to purchase one of the company's hardware options, although prices for such products are reasonable, especially when discounts are applied.
All current NetZero plans are divided based on the amount of data consumed, not speed. Unlike early incarnations of NetZero service plans, newer plans do not require you to view ads. Before choosing a plan, you can compare it with similar plans available from other providers. All services include 24-7 support, which has earned mostly positive reviews from NetZero customers, according to online reviews.
You won't have to worry about activation fees with NetZero. Wireless service plans also do not include overage charges. Instead, you'll receive an alert when you get close to your data limit for the month and be given the option to upgrade to a higher plan with greater data limits or opt for more data based on your needs.
