Let me get this straight, spend 7.2 billion up front for 18m users. Then incur a cost per month of 230m to operate the ISP and give it all away for free????
You aren't a stock broker are you?
Did you ever wish to have invested into McDonalds
when it was trading for only 0.25?

AOL has 18 million internet users. If I wanted to
buy all of AOL at its market value, it would cost me
$100 billion. What do I get for $100 billion? I get 18
million users that pay me $21/month. That means I am
paying $5,555 for each AOL user. That would be insane.
If I was microsoft...Why not just give $400 to each
of AOL's 18 million users. That would only cost me
7.2 billion dollars vs. $100 billion. It was hard to
let go of my internet positions but AOL is going to
tank the internet sector.
your formual of outstanding shares multiplied by the CURRENT MARKET VALUE divided by number of users equals the cost to service each user.....your going to have to explain that one a little better.
1.08 billion shares outstanding at $92/share
equals a market capitalization of $100 billion. Current
AOL users equals 18 million. Divide $100 billion by
18 million = $5,555 cost/per user. Microsoft and
Prodigy are buying users for $400. Invest $400 and you
get a contract that pays you $20/month for 36 months.
Hey, that's better than a 3 year CD.
known this free internet access has been on the way.
They are just trying to figure out a way to get
through this crisis. It will happen again just like Aol
had to compete with ISP's offering unlimited use for
$19.95/month in 1996.
