You know.... It's a terrific ad campaign and there's a strong "hats-off" to the ad agency for original thinking on this. I think it will help JUNO and that's ultimately good for the stock.

However, I've taken my profit at 26 (thanks day traders....!!!), and will look to re-enter this stock, if we get a good growth and earnings report.

Back to the ad: I think Debbie's cute and I love her smile when she say that she "gave it to everyone at the garage"...

Great advertising!! Congrats to Juno!

Steve

Juno and Splitrock Sign Agreement to Expand Access to Web; Juno
Will <JWEB.O>

Juno and Splitrock Sign Agreement to Expand Access to Web; Juno Will Add Hundreds of New Access Numbers for Its Members NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 12, 1999--Juno Online Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JWEB) announced today that it has signed a three-year agreement with Splitrock Services, Inc., a leading network provider, to make additional local Internet access numbers available for connection to its online services. This agreement will benefit Juno users in multiple ways. First, more users will be able to get online for the cost of a local phone call. The addition of Splitrock's network will provide access numbers in many new cities across the United States. The increase in Internet access numbers will also help ensure that Juno's users continue to have fast connection times. "Our agreement with Splitrock will increase ease of access and will help us continue to provide a high-quality service to our subscribers," said Wendy Rosenberg, vice president of telecommunications at Juno. "By expanding our network of local access numbers, our goal is to ensure that our members have the quick and affordable access to the Internet they expect from Juno." "We are pleased to provide Juno the additional access they need to expand service to their customers," said Bill Wilson, president and CEO of Splitrock Services. "Our access platform expands their reach today and has the capacity to grow with their customer base in the future. We look forward to delivering first-rate service to Juno's customers."

Juno Announces Expanded Nationwide Internet Coverage, Hundreds of
New <JWEB.O>

Juno Announces Expanded Nationwide Internet Coverage, Hundreds of New Access Numbers Increase Juno's Points of Presence to More Than 2,300 NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 13, 1999--Juno Online Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JWEB) announced today that it has added more than 400 new access numbers across the nation for use by members of its Internet services, bringing the total number of points of presence (POPs) that Juno offers to more than 2,300. This expansion reinforces Juno's position as a leader in offering local coverage throughout the United States. The rolling out of new POPs comes in part as a result of an agreement recently announced between Juno and Splitrock Services, Inc., a leading network provider. In addition, Juno has recently begun making available new POPs from other wholesale network vendors. The new POPs increase the number of distinct geographic locations where Juno(R) users can access the service with a local call by more than 40%, and bring the total number of places where Juno offers one or more POPs to more than 1,300, including more than 400 cities in which Juno did not previously offer local access numbers. "With these new points of presence, Juno can offer users a greater choice of access numbers than ever before, and more than almost any other access provider," said Wendy Rosenberg, Juno's vice president in charge of telecommunications. "No matter where in the country you live or travel to, the chances are excellent that Juno is there, and that you'll be able to use Juno to connect to the Web through a highly reliable 56 kbps v.90-compatible local connection." In combination with the release of version 3.0 of the Juno software (as announced in June), the new access numbers will make it easier for Juno subscribers to use all three levels of the company's Internet services.

Anyone care to explain why JWEB is selling for such a large premium over similar ISP's?

JWEB
market cap: $910,000,000
Billable services $5,806,000
Total revenues: $9,720,000

as of March 31, 1999,JWEB had approximately 207,000
billable service subscribers, consisting of approximately 86,000 Juno Gold subscribers and approximately 121,000 Juno Web subscribers. Since the launch of our billable subscription services, billable services revenues have increased, both in absolute terms and as a percentage of our revenues.

We currently offer our billable subscription services under a number of pricing plans, ranging from $2.95 per month for Juno Gold, billed annually in advance, to $19.95 per month for the Juno Web
*****************************************************************

FLAS
FLASHNET COMMS
Market cap $380,000,000
Consumer access services last quarter: $7,150,000
Total revenues $8,100,000

As of March 31, 1999, the Company had accumulated a subscriber base of
approximately 190,000 users, including approximately 3,000 customers for its business services.

I have also been a bit puzzled about JWEB's valuation but I have now come to understand that it is about eyeballs. Think about it, they have over 7.0 MM people using their e-mail service. The following is Steve Harmon's take on NetZero, a U.S. based free ISP that filed its S-1 yesterday. He is suggesting that JWEB may switch to a free service.

NetZero IPO, More Than Zero?

By Steve Harmon
Senior Investment Analyst internet.com
"Where Wall Street Meets The Web"

Another of idealab's ideas is making its way to Wall Street: NetZero filed its first papers yesterday for IPO. The 'freebie give you Internet access if you'll view the ads and fill out a personal profile form service' has 1.17 million users in its first 8 months of operation. That just about matches the subscribers of oldtimer ISPs Earthlink (NASDAQ:ELNK - news) or Mindspring (NASDAQ:MSPG - news) --without the subscriber revenue, however. Big difference.

NetZero's claim to fame is it gives users a free PC, "free" being the focus word. Free if you consider sharing your personal info and enduring ad impressions in return for the box and net access.

In its latest quarter NetZero posted $903k revenue and $7.1 million net loss. Under 'Sources of Revenue' in the filing it's interesting to note the wording: SOURCES OF REVENUE..."We generate, or plan to generate, revenues from the following services."

Planning to generate revenue via sources. Hmmm. Maybe not so far-fetched if you think about 1 million users eyeballs glued to the PC getting ads, commerce pitches, sponsorship offers, direct marketing emails, bombarding them.

Consider that AOL basically sells sponsorships, displays ads, does some direct marketing. 17 million people subscribe to AOL. And pay AOL $21.95 per month.

While the early documents I reviewed don't specify the number of shares outstanding I estimate NetZero may find a market capitalization in the aftermarket in the Juno (NASDAQ:JWEB - news) range, about $900 million, despite Juno having substantially more revenue and users at this point. Juno provides free dial-up email services (an ESP, email service provider). I expect Juno to turn the switch on for free Internet access also since it's not difficult for Juno to do.

As far as pricing this at IPO I would value each user of NetZero at about $250 each, which is the median value per unique user for the top 10 Web sites.

NetZero is a long way off being a top 10 Website but I think the value per user applies somewhat. For comparison, in the pay ISP space, EarthLink is valued at about $1,400 per subscriber or about 470% more on a user to subscriber basis.

But keep in mind, and it should be stressed again, that the comparison is not apples to apples, more apple leaves to apples, with the pay service generating much more cash flow. In fact, EarthLink reported its second-quarter revenue July 14 of $78 million vs. $37.9 million 2Q98.

Without a monthly subscriber fee NetZero will have to deliver many more than the current 830 million ad impressions delivered in June to 613,000 active users that month. I expect that idealab's $7 million acquisition of defunct Pointcast could serve some advantage with NetZero as a way to deliver and track results. idealab owns 31% while Draper Fisher Jurvetson owns about 16% before the IPO. Compaq owns 8.7%.

Overall, I've always thought that the value of the entire food chain from ISP to user and back lies with the user. If NetZero can get to the 5 million or more level then I think it has something. Getting there from here requires that AOL, EarthLink or Mindspring sits still and does nothing to change their fee system, that NetZero can grow its brand recognition, and that it can maintain its users to deliver those ads and marketing impressions--its bread and butter.

If not then the term NetZero could take on a whole new meaning. Overall I think NetZero may get there, just as Dixon's in the UK (another upcoming IPO) has changed access in the UK forever.
