Web site set aside for free AOL registrations

Enquiries flood in for freebie Netscape Online

AOL UK -- a division of AOL Europe -- has received so much interest about its new subscription-free service, Netscape Online, that it's devoted Web space to handle the enquiries. Anyone interested in signing up to the ISP can leave their details at the pre-registration site. Alternatively, they can call freephone 0800 923 0009 and register their interest there. Those who do register in advance will receive priority response for Netscape Online software when the service launches later this month, AOL said. "We're excited about the overwhelming response to the announcement of Netscape Online, which we believe demonstrates not only the power of the pioneering Netscape brands but users' recognition of AOL Europe's commitment to quality, reliability and customer service," said AOL UK's new MD, Karen Thompson, in a prepared statement. Neither Thompson, nor anyone at AOL UK, would say exactly how much interest has been shown in the new service. Nor would they say exactly when this month it would be launched. ®
