AOL Increase

June 22nd, 2008 at 08:32 pm

I received an e-mail from aol last week stating:

We’re writing to inform you that the monthly fee for your AOL membership will be increased to $11.99 per month*. This change will take effect on your first AOL bill after July 18, 2008.

This plan is still a great value, saving you at least $3-$10 per month over comparable plans from other major Internet service providers. This small increase allows us to provide you with unlimited live technical support 24 hours a day, as well as reliable Internet service, industry-leading safety and security tools, exclusive content and many other great features and services you’ve come to expect from AOL:

Unlimited dialup service, allowing you to be online whenever you want, for as long as you want, with no hourly fees or overage charges
24/7 live technical support by email, chat or phone -- so we're always there when you need us
Protection against viruses, spyware and hackers from McAfee® VirusScan® Plus – Special edition from AOL (separate download required)
Industry-leading Parental Controls
Tools to help block spam and pop-ups
Up to seven AOL screen names with unlimited email storage
5GB of Xdrive online storage for photos, music or files, accessible from any Internet-connected computer

Because you’re a valued member, we’re offering you another option. You can choose a version of the Basic Dial-up plan that does not include unlimited technical support by phone. Members choosing this plan, which costs $9.99 per month*, are only able to contact AOL for technical support by phone if they have trouble connecting to the Internet. For instructions on how to select this limited-support plan instead, click here.

To avoid this price change you must choose a new plan or cancel before your first AOL bill after July 18, 2008. Otherwise, your continued subscription to the AOL service constitutes your acceptance of this change. To review your current billing information, including price and bill date
