AOL Announces Huge Price Reduction

Winter 1999 CSANews Issue 33  |  Posted date : Mar 03, 2007.Back to list

Great news for all AOL Canada members. AOL Canada has announced that, as of December 16, 1999 the unlimited use charge will be dropped to $22.95CAD per month. This will apply to all CSA AOL Canada members. This is a superb value, considering that AOL customers in the United States pay a flat rate of $22USD per month.

All CSA AOL Canada members will have their accounts changed automatically to reflect the new pricing. There is no need to contact either us or AOL. AOL Canada members will continue to enjoy seamless cross-border access from both Canada and the United States.

Additionally, AOL has released AOL Canada 5.0 with a number of new features that may be of interest, including a more seamless integration between AOL and the Internet browser, including plug-ins such as audio and video, and seven e-mail accounts, each with its own customizable features. Some of these features may be unnecessary for your needs. If they are not required, I wouldn't bother doing the upgrade at this time. It is quite large to download and, if the features are not of real interest, you can do just fine using version 4.0.

I always like to mention any new and fun Web sites I bump into, so here are this issue's picks:

If you are looking for a really good search engine, without all the advertising and other junk everyone seems to want to throw at you, try www.google.com . It's fast and clean, and more accurate than anything else I have used.

Want to live to be 120 years old? Scientists tell us it is biologically possible. Visit the Life Extension Foundation at www.lef.org for all the tips and latest information on staying healthy. You may want to become a lifetime member of the CSA now! If that doesn't work out, you can always stop by www.nfda.com.

If the grandkids are down for the holidays and you have had your fill of theme parks and other amusements, you may want to pop by www.theideabox.com. It is a site filled with great games and activities certain to keep everyone quiet. At least for a little while.

I would like to take a moment to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and remember, if you overdo it ringing in the new millennium, you can always stop by www.migraine.ca for some tips on how to stop the banging in your head. Cheers.
