Time Warner today posted better-than-expected second-quarter profits, rebounding from a loss last year as it announced a revamped internet strategy designed to compete with rivals including Microsoft and Google.
The company added that it will now give away e-mail accounts and other software through its AOL arm to users of its high-speed internet services. The u-turn is designed to attract advertising revenues to AOL's online assets.
It will now drop charges - previously $15 a month - for a package of services including instant messaging, a local phone number and security features.
