Juno is a dial-up Internet service provider that manages its connectivity through a custom client application, hence the need for a Mac OS X version of the Juno software. Juno Platinum features thousands of access number nationwide for about half the standard price of America Online, according to the company — US$9.95 per month. The premium service tier for Juno affords users 10MB of e-mail storage space and online account management, priority dial-up access, no pop-ups and fewer advertisements.
One feature missing from Juno Platinum for OS X is the ability to support multiple e-mail accounts, which the ISP hopes to add in a future version. Alas, Mac OS X users remain locked out of Juno’s free Internet access service as well.
Other United Online Inc. brands include NetZero and BlueLight, budget retailer K-Mart’s own “house” brand for Internet access. Both NetZero and BlueLight remain Windows-only, according to information posted to each service’s Web site.
