NetZero, in business since 1998, is a nationwide Internet Service Provider, available in more than 8,000 cities across North America. NetZero offers both a standard speed dial-up Internet access connection and a HiSpeed dial-up Internet access connection. NetZero also offers a toll-free service as well for customers that may live outside of NetZero’s regular dial-up service area. All of NetZero’s services work from any phone jack and use a standard dial-up connection. None of NetZero’s services requires any new hardware so you will be able to sign up and start using the service quickly. Some other features offered by NetZero include Norton AntiVirus (so email viruses are filtered out before they get to you), a NetZero email address (so you can have your own personal email box to send and receive emails from friends and family), spam protection (so you won’t have to deal with annoying emails in your inbox), a pop-up blocker (so you won’t have to deal with annoying pop-up adds), IM compatibility (so you can use any IM program you want) and 24/7 Live Technical Support (so you can get the help you need when you want it). NetZero’s HiSpeed Internet services offers you all these features and accelerated dial-up Internet access, with Web surfing up to five times faster than conventional dial-up so you can really get around the Internet much faster. All services are available with no credit card required so you can use alternative forms of payment without incurring any finance charges.
