Naples Free-Net is a 501c 3 charitable organization
which has been operated completely by volunteers for the past 8 years. We
have gone from the original 16 phone lines to over 200 at present. Our
basic account is still free, but we do ask for donations, no matter how small,
to help pay for our phone bill of over $8,000 a month and our annual budget of
approximately $150,000. We receive no government support and our major
source of revenue is from our members, especially those who sign up for our
Premium Custom I.D. account. Anyone who contributes $60 a year or more is
eligible for the Premium account.
All of our accounts, Standard or Premium, have a 2 hour limit per use and a 4
hour limit per day. This allows our services to be more evenly distributed
throughout our membership.
You must present yourself at our Helpdesk at the Village Falls complex on
U>S> 41 East, to make application for membership in NFN. You must
present a picture I.D. for security purposes, complete and sign the application
form, make a donation if you so desire, and pick up your installation disk and
instructions on how to configure your computer to work with our server.
