EarthLink Start Page Available to All

    May 25, 2005

Building on the success of its Personal Start Page, EarthLink, the nation’s next generation Internet service provider, today announced that its free, customizable gateway to the Internet – the myEarthLink start page – is available for non-EarthLink subscribers.

In 1997, EarthLink began providing subscribers with a content-rich, easily-navigable and interactive launch point to the Internet via the Personal Start Page.

Now, non-EarthLink subscribers who want to access the information on their home pages without online aggravations like pop-up ads have a simple, one-stop-shop for personalized news, entertainment, sports, stock quotes and other content with added enhancements for customization.

“EarthLink believes that the power of the Internet resides in each consumer’s ability to define and create a personal online experience, which is why we created myEarthLink,” said Tom Andrus, vice president of business development, EarthLink. “Customization is the key to creating an individualized gateway to the Internet, and myEarthLink has the tools, services and content to fit each of our own styles and tastes.”

myEarthLink will continue to give EarthLink subscribers access to the ISP’s most popular Web properties, including Web Mail, Support Center and My Account. In addition, EarthLink’s subscribers and non-subscribers will find an easy interface that makes the Internet less complex and more manageable.

MyEarthLink users can customize their start page with features like:

  • An advanced search engine powered by Google(tm) and enhanced with shopping results from Amazon and
  • My eBay which allows users to monitor and access their eBay activities
  • My Favorite Theatres which displays available theatres, show times and movie reviews for any title
  • Internet Security Alerts powered by Symantec(tm) which displays the latest virus threats and provides the tools to run a free security scan
  • Personal reminders so users will never miss another birthday or anniversary
  • Other tools like job search, music, horoscopes, travel and an online bookstore
