United Online Enters Broadband Market

Woodland Hills-based United Online said today that it has launched a new, DSL broadband service offering as part of an agreement with Verizon. United Online said that it will begin offering two levels of broadband service under the NetZero DSL name, including a 768 Kbps service priced at $14.95 per month for six months, and 1.5 Mbps service at $19.95 per month for six month. The new service is the first for the firm, which has until now operated a low cost consumer dialup service. The service is available to customers within Verizon DSL coverage areas.
