NetZero Wireless, Inc., a subsidiary of United Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNTD), today announced the launch of the NetZero 4G Data Share program. Through this new program, any of Facebook’s® millions of U.S. members can sign up at www.netzero.net/datashare and receive one free gigabyte of wireless data per month to give away to their friends via Facebook. All of the free wireless data that is given away can be claimed by the Facebook member’s friends through the NetZero 4G Data Share app and can be used by NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers with any data plan, including the 200MB/month free plan.
“With the launch of this innovative program, we are remaining true to our commitment to bridge the digital divide and bring the power of the Internet to more Americans,” said Rusty Taragan, President of NetZero Wireless. “This program has the potential to deliver an enormous amount of free data at 4G speed to NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers to use online without being tethered to a home Internet or public Wi-Fi connection. Through this program, Facebook’s millions of U.S. members will have the opportunity to give away a significant amount of free data to their friends, claim free data from other program members, and, if they become a NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscriber (even those who choose to sign up for our free service), use the data to access the Internet wirelessly anywhere within our network.”
NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband launched in March 2012 as a secure, mobile, super-fast 4G Internet service for laptops, iPads® and other tablets, and netbooks. Unlike public Wi-Fi, where personal information may be exposed to hackers and data thieves, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband delivers a private, protected Internet connection. NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers are not required to sign a contract, can join on a month-to-month basis, can cancel at any time, and can upgrade their data plan at will without facing overage charges. New subscribers can also try the service for free for up to a year with the purchase of one of the two NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband devices: the NetZero 4G Stick or the NetZero 4G Hotspot. Each plan delivers 4G mobile broadband service with very fast download speeds of up to 10Mbps and upload speeds of up to 1.5Mbps.
