What is PeoplePC?

PeoplePC is a low-cost dial-up Internet service Provider that operates in the United States. It was previously a bundled PC marketing company that offers a branded PC, a dial-up ISP service and a warranty service. The package was priced at a monthly membership fee of $24.95.

It was launched in 1999 and landed big contracts from firms like The New York Times, Vivendi, Delta Air Lines and Ford which subsidized the monthly fees for their employees.

The fast development of ISP technology and computer hardware eventually led PeoplePC to have revenue problems. It was bought by EarthLink, an internet communications technology and networking company in 2000. Earthlink operates PeoplePC as a purely ISP business via software installation, maintaining its strength in the low cost, dial-up ISP category.

PeoplePC as a dial-up ISP injects add-on features that are customer-focused and are not offered by broadband ISPs. These include incorporating an Internet call waiting for its users with the caller ID of the source displayed on the PC screen. Users can pick up calls even while online. There is also a bundled Internet Security Pack to protect against virus and a Spaminator to protect against junk mail onslaught on email accounts. It also provides free email addresses for account holders for business and entrepreneurial use.

These features helped PeoplePC to land top ranking in the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 top dial-up ISP in four categories - service cost, email, billing and offers.
