|Netscape OnLine to close|
| 8:28 am on Mar 22, 2002 (gmt 0)|
According to reports, AOL will close Netscape Online on June 27.
The portal will remain, but AOL hope to pull people over with bribes of free hours/months etc
I suspect that many of the Netscape OnLine customers will take the free offer before jumping ship to Freeserve et al
As I understand it, I don't think it should make too much difference to our traffic profiles - have I missed anything?
(Compuserve users, watch out, you may be next in line!)

This is going to be a real pain for those joe public users with netscape online accounts.
I have one user on NO at the moment, he has no idea of how to use the net so changing ISP will be traumatic.

That sums up 75% of my customers.
The Yahoo POP3 e-mail about-face has caused us similar problems.
Ah well (sigh) - if they were all experts they wouldn't need us:)

Hey, look on the bright side. At least we'll see an end to the millions of Netscape Online CDs at Woolworths and EB. The fewer copies of Netscape 4.7 (*shudder*) there are in the world, the better. :)

hmmm.. might just make more room for the AOL CDs
its a close call:)
