Today, a subsidiary of United Online (News - Alert), Inc., NetZero Wireless, Inc., announced the launch of the NetZero 4G Data Share program. To give away to friends via Facebook (News - Alert), any of Facebook’s millions of U.S. members can sign up and receive one free gigabyte of wireless data per month.
Through the NetZero 4G Data Share app, Facebook member’s friends can claim all of the free wireless data that is given away. It can be used by NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers with any data plan, including the 200MB/month free plan.

“With the launch of this innovative program, we are remaining true to our commitment to bridge the digital divide and bring the power of the Internet to more Americans,” said Rusty Taragan, president of NetZero Wireless.
Taragan added that this program has the potential to deliver an enormous amount of free data at 4G speed to NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers to use online without being tethered to a home Internet or public Wi-Fi connection. Facebook’s millions of U.S. members will have the opportunity through this program to give away a significant amount of free data to their friends.
They will be able to claim free data from other program members, and, if they become a NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscriber, anywhere within the network they will be able to use the data to access the Internet wirelessly.
In March 2012, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband launched as a secure, mobile, super-fast 4G Internet service for laptops, iPads and other tablets, and netbooks. NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband delivers a private, protected Internet connection unlike public Wi-Fi, where personal information may be exposed to hackers and data thieves.
Without facing overage charges, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers can join on a month-to-month basis, can cancel at any time, and can upgrade their data plan at will without requiring signing a contract.
