Apples and oranges. Freeserve and AOL are entirely different beasts.
Freeserve is a commodity, an Internet connection, a pass thru. AOL users use
the site, stay on the site and return to the site regularly. The revenue
models are also totally different. Subscriber values are related to the
'value' of the subscriber, AOL users are more 'valuable' than Freeserve
customers. As for the 1500 per user, finger in the air I suspect.
