Short Take: NetZero to set usage cap

Beginning Jan. 1, free Internet service provider NetZero will apply a 40 hours-per-month usage limit to its free service. Customers of the ISP that exceed the 40-hour cap will have an option to pay $9.95 through the end of the month. Otherwise, access will be denied. NetZero joins rival free ISP Juno Online Services in placing a usage cap.
