Study Q170027. Free vs Paid
Question -
Imagine... No advertising, no pop ups, nobody trying to sell you something every time you get on-line. Great! But there's a trade-off. You will have to pay a small fee, to keep the 'internet' alive. We all know that advertising revenue is what keeps most web sites alive, and probably the Internet as a whole.

So, given the choice...

3866202I just don't pay any attention to the advertising.*United StatesF70
3866113wish is was free now.. its like cable tv started out wit no commercials so didn't mind paying but now its riddled with commercials and infomercials and prices keep going upMicheleUnited StatesF45
3866244I think that If the internet is free more and more people will use it. For me advertisements, pop ups and junk- email are not a big deal so they not disturb me at all whether I am watching something or looking for some information , etc.RositsaBulgariaF18
3866130I don't mind advertising if it is really ADVERTISING. What Corporate America relies on, though is spyware watching everything we do and selling it to the highest bidder. Just show me a banner ad and STOP SPYING!!!!!JeffUnited StatesM55
