    Yeah, but “free” costs about $45 more than it did last month… ;) -DZ

    I was trying to figure out how much you pay a month after the gift certificate ends, but couldn’t find it anywhere in the fine print. Do you just pick a 1-, 2- or 3-year service plan after that?

    My understanding is that when the initial commitment period ends, you pay monthly at the rate equivalent to the rate you would’ve had during that period.

    So if you start with one year, you go monthly at $19.95. Two, $14.94. Three, $12.95.

    However, you are always able to switch plans so at the end of that one year you can call and commit to 3-more to get $12.95. You aren’t stuck paying $19.95.
