REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 18, 2000 — MSN today announced the continuation of its popular MSN TM Internet Access rebate program in California and Oregon. The program, which was developed on a national basis to provide consumers an easy and affordable way to access the Internet and MSN, had been suspended temporarily on Jan. 7 so that MSN could make necessary changes to continue the rebate offer in these two states.
“We are happy to be able to announce the continuation of the program so that consumers can continue enjoying a program that provides easy and affordable access to the Internet and the award-winning MSN service,”
said Ted Kummert, general manager, MSN Internet Access.
“On behalf of MSN, I’d like to thank our customers and retail partners in California and Oregon for their patience and apologize for any inconvenience this suspension may have caused.”
