United Online, Inc. (UNTD) NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband Service Goes Online

|Includes: United Online, Inc. (UNTD)

NetZero Wireless, Inc., a subsidiary of United Online, yesterday announced the launch of NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband, a fast, affordable, and secure Internet service for netbooks, laptops, iPads, and other tablets.

This exciting new service launched in over 80 cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Miami. Users will have the capability to create their own personal Internet connections without being tied to unsecure public hotspots at places like coffee shops, airports, and hotels, hotspots where personal information may be exposed to hackers and data thieves. Unlike these public hotspots, NetZero's service delivers a protected, private Internet connection anytime, anywhere within its coverage area.

Starting at just $9.95 per month, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband Data Plans are affordable and flexible, as customers are not required to sign a contract, and can upgrade their data plan at any time. The 4G service is also incredibly fast, delivering download speeds up to 10Mbps and upload speeds of up to 1.5Mbps.

Customers will be excited to hear that there are no overage charges, and they cannot accidently exceed monthly data allotments. When customers reach their monthly data limit, they are alerted and presented the 3 options of not using the service until next month, buying extra data "Top Ups" that they can use through the current billing cycle, or upgrading to a higher capacity data plan.

All data plans, including the free plan, require the purchase of one of two affordable access devices: the NetZero 4G HotSpot™ ($99.95) and 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. The NetZero 4G Stick supports a single desktop, laptop, or netbook via a USB port.

One innovative feature included in all NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband plans is the ability to alternate between two maximum data speeds depending on customer needs at the time of use. When looking to conserve data, users can change to LightSpeed (1Mbps), or when a customer needs maximum speed, the data speed setting can be set to the appropriately named WarpSpeed (10 Mbps).

Chairman, President, and CEO of United Online, Mark R. Goldston sums up this exciting new service well in this statement, "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. 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."
