Why do you charge a Processing & Handling fee?
Unlike regular dial-up, which uses your existing phone signal and requires no special preparation, your phone line has to be specially configured in order to receive DSL service. The Processing & Handling fee covers the cost of making your phone line DSL-ready.
While other services might have a lower Processing & Handling fee up front, they may include a monthly rental or service charge for the DSL modem, increasing their overall cost.
NetZero DSL provides you with a Free DSL modem and all the equipment you need to get online with DSL service. We also give you a full suite of Internet services valued at over $100 per year (if purchased separately) including:
