America Online still offers a free 30-day Internet trial once a client signs up for the AOL Support and Security Plus plan or the AOL Advantage Plus plan. Additionally, NetZero offers a partially free Internet service for mobile phones.
AOL still requires the client to provide a credit or debit card during the registration process for the free trial. This enables AOL to charge that card once the free trial has expired. NetZero's program requires users to make a one-time purchase of either a NetZero 4G HotSpot device or a NetZero 4G USB Stick, listed at $99.95 and $49.95 respectively as of 2015. The NetZero client can then access the Clear wireless Internet network for one year for free.
