PALO ALTO, Calif., June 5, 2000?AltaVista Company, the premier knowledge
resource on the Internet and a majority-owned operating company of CMGI,
Inc. (Nasdaq: CMGI), today expanded its Free Internet Access program to
include support for Macintosh computers. Beginning today, Macintosh users
in the United States and Canada can begin saving money with AltaVista's
Free Access service, which currently has more than 2.5 million registered
users. AltaVista Free Access is a high-quality dial-up service available
for download in North America at: www.microav.com.

"This new service will continue to put pressure on the obsolete practice of
paying for dial-up access and introduces AltaVista Free Access to the
Macintosh community as the leading Internet brand to offer such a service,"
said Bill Keenan, director of AltaVista free access. "Mac users have been
an untapped market for high-quality free Internet access, and we're excited
to bring the value of our free service to this dynamic group."

AltaVista Free Access is the first free, quality dial-up Internet service
offered by a leading Internet brand. The service provides unlimited
Internet usage at no cost in cities across North America through almost
5,000 dial-up phone numbers. AltaVista Free Access features the world's
first microportal, a small desktop application that provides personalized,
up-to-the-minute news, information and links to valuable AltaVista Network
services. The microportal takes less than five percent of a user's screen
space and contains a rotating advertisement within the window.

AltaVista Free Access is powered by patent-pending technology from
1stUp.com Corporation, a majority-owned operating company of CMGI, Inc. and
a leading provider of private label Internet access solutions and
innovative advertising technology.
