EarthLink Offers Gold to Members

Internet Service Provider EarthLink today announced the release of TotalAccess Gold Volume Two set of Internet applications.

Full versions of leading Net-related programs and utilities are offered to TotalAccess Gold members every quarter, the company said. Version Two titles include Eudora Pro 4.01, SurfExpress and StuffIt.

The package is available to Earthlink subscribers for $9.95 a month, and includes products and services with an annual retail value of more than $800, the firm stated. In addition to the quarterly CD-ROM, Gold members also receive guaranteed five-minute technical support and an additional e-mail address.

"When we originally conceived TotalAccess Gold, we did a lot of research into what our members wanted above and beyond our standard Internet access service," said Bill Heys, senior vice president at EarthLink. "Since then, we've received a lot of positive feedback from members who love the additional perks they get with Gold. Introducing a second set of top-flight software should get people even more excited."

Software previously offered include Adobe PageMill, Vital Signs NetMedic and Symantec Norton AntiVirus.
