America Online Cheapened -- America Online now boasts lower access rates of $9.95 per month, which includes the first five hours of usage at any time of day (starts 01-May-93) and $3.50 per hour for usage after those first five hours (starts 01-Jul-93). AOL still lacks 9,600 bps access, but rumors hint that it won't be any more expensive when it appears real soon now.
