Having a computer for college has officially gone from being a luxury to a necessity. College students everywhere dread the thought of being confined to over packed on campus computer labs.
Unfortunately school can no longer be tackled without a high speed internet connection!
Nothing is more frustrating for a student than having to battle for a computer to finish homework or other projects. It can take hours on some campuses. A highly recommended solution to these problems is to avoid them altogether!
NetZero is a highly reliable solution. They offer several internet services. If all you have to do to keep a float in your classes is check e-mail from your professors, Platinum is a great NetZero service. If more is required, 3G HiSpeed might be a better option. But in a world of such rapidly advancing technology it is impossible to get by without internet from your house or dorm room.
It is quite incredible how dependent school has become on computers. I have even heard of people that use their PC’s for business classes, but still have to go to labs to complete with other class requirements on Macs. I have seen people suffer for not having personal access to the web, so any college student should take this into careful consideration.

Today (August 28th, 2007) NetZero has announced the arrival of “Video Mail”. This enables NetZero users to attach a personal video to their e-mail and easily send it to anyone, anywhere in the world. A person who receives an e-mail from someone with video mail will not have to download the video to watch it.
Instead the video is in the browser itself eliminating a need to download. This is also a good feature because large attachments can often get marked as spam. This way, there is no problem in sending the mail.
Fortunately, video mail will be available to both NetZero’s free and paying customers. However, the free service customers will be limited to a 3 minute video, while the paying customers can have longer videos.
So now NetZero has done it again, this time making it much easier to e-mail videos to your friends, family, and associates.
This is just another reason to sign up for NetZero. They are always offering new special features such as this one and often for free. NetZero is an internet service provider that cares a lot about their customers.

NetZero has always been sure to offer a very reliable connection. Rather it be their Platinum service, 3G HiSpeed service, or DSL, NetZero has always been there without problems.
Since they are so reliable, many people are starting to use them as a backup provider. During thunderstorms and at other times, people have reported their other internet service providers connection goes out or slows down to an unusable speed. These people have said that while their other ISP’s connection was unavailable, their NetZero connection has still worked reliably.
So now many people are signing up for the free 10 hours a month or even NetZero Platinum to have a reliable backup connection in case their primary connection fails.
Not only are NetZero’s services reliable, they are also affordable. So using NetZero as your primary or backup ISP is not expensive at all. If it is important to always have a solid connection, NetZero is a great solution.

NetZero launched it’s 3G HiSpeed service in 2005 and charged $9.95 a month for it claiming that it is the fastest dial-up service on the market. Today, 2 years later, the price is still a constant low $9.95 a month.
They have also continued to offer their Platinum service for the great low price of $6.95 a month. Seeing that these are limited time offers, a few people in the forums have asked if they are going to expire soon.
The answer is no! For now these rates will continue to be offered to potential NetZero customers everywhere. After all, NetZero is a firm believer in the old saying, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!” These rates are great for both NetZero and customers alike, so for now, as long as people are signing up, the rates will continue to be available.
NetZero has always been heavily focused in customer satisfaction. That was the whole reason for the development of the Platinum and 3G HiSpeed services. NetZero has always developed new ways to make using the internet more convenient earing a thumbs up from customers everywhere.

When choosing an internet service provider, there are many important factors to consider. Among the more obvious are speed and price, but in all reality, this is only a small fraction of the whole picture. There are many other important factors to consider.
E-mail is a big factor. What kind of special e-mail features does the service offer? How many accounts does the provider offer? Does it have SPAM blocker and a virus protection. If so, how much does all this cost, or is it free?
More important options are does the service offer a web blocking option to protect your children? It also might not be a bad idea to make a customer service call before signing up to see how quickly and conveniently they respond.
If you are signing up for dial-up, are there many local access numbers, and what kinds of different services does the ISP offer? Is it cable so you have to share bandwidth with the whole block, or DSL so you can have dedicated bandwidth? If the ISP offers several different services, it will make it easier to upgrade later if necessary and keep current e-mail addresses.
NetZero does a great job with these qualifications and offers reliable connections for a fraction of the cost. Check out the latest deals now and look into all the features offered with each service!

It has become clearly obvious that many people are preferring to use NetZero DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) over cable internet. Many people can’t fathom why anyone would prefer to use a DSL service over a cable provider since the highest speeds available today are through cable internet. The deeper story is that in reality, DSL has many advantages over cable that are very important to know about.
The first HUGE benefit that DSL has over cable is that DSL is dedicated, unlike cable which bandwidth is dependent upon how many users are “using” it. So if there are a lot of people that use cable internet near your house, your cable connection is guaranteed to slow down.
Because DSL is dedicated, it is more secure than cable. Cable, since it uses a shared medium is much more vulnerable to online theft, eavesdropping, and a number of other pits.
There are many other reasons why DSL, more often than not, is preferred over cable internet. Protection and dependency are just a few. DSL prices have also dropped considerably often making it quite a bit cheaper that cable. Right now NetZero offers a high quality 1.5Mbps DSL connection for as low as $17.95 a month for the first 3 months and only $19.95 a month after that.

Lately, many people have been asking if NetZero is still offering a free internet service like they did in the beginning back in 1998. The simple answer to this question is, YES! Back when NetZero launched they offered free unlimited ad-based internet access. Down the road it became to difficult to only offer free internet, so instead of taking it away, NetZero continued to offer the free service up for up to 10 hours a month. This is the service that is still available today. Up to 10 hours a month of free internet access, no strings attached.
Anyone who exceeds this amount of web time every month was recommended to switch over to NetZero Platinum. A great service that is still available today.
NetZero’s free internet service comes with some great features. Aside from 10 free hours of web surfing a month, NetZero offers a free e-mail account with 1 GB of storage which can be accessed from any computer at anytime. This free service also has instant messaging compatibility. The service is very easy to download and only takes about 2 minutes.
So for anyone who just likes to check their e-mail or do a little surfing every month, there is no reason not to have NetZero’s free internet access. For anyone that exceeds 10 hours a month, NetZero still offers NetZero Platinum for only $6.95 right now. NetZero also offers a service called NetZero 3G HiSpeed for only $9.95 a month. 3G HiSpeed is advertised as being “the” fasted dial-up available. These rates are a special promotion and will end. So no matter what a person needs are, NetZero has a specific internet service for everyone.
