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...

2 Free Internet. No, I prefer that the Internet remained a free resource, and I don't mind advertising. 66.7
