AOL plans to charge existing users under the “Bring Your Own Access Plan” US$14.95 per month, an increase from the previous rate of $9.95 per month, beginning in March. c|net reports that the rate increase was implemented for new users in October 2001, but existing users were allowed to continue paying the lower rate. The plan, which allows users with an outside ISP to access the AOL service, is used by approximately 1 million of AOL’s 33 million subscribers.
