eWorld Rate Correction

eWorld Rate Correction -- OK, so I blew the eWorld rates last issue. Here's the scoop, straight from the horse's press release. "The basic monthly subscription to the service is $8.95, which includes two free hours of evening or weekend usage. Each subsequent hour of usage is $4.95. In the U.S. and Canada only, there is an hourly surcharge of $2.95 during business hours (6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time). Access from outside the U.S. carries a $7.95 per hour surcharge (24 hours per day), but no business hour surcharge. There is no extra charge for the use of the Internet mail gateway or for 9,600 bps access." [ACE]
