Internet service provider @Bigger.net, a company with a unique marketing approach but a checkered financial history, said it plans to begin offering Net access in Southern California markets today. The struggling firm, which filed for bankruptcy protection in December, bills its Internet service as "unlimited access with no monthly fee," meaning subscribers don't have to pay the $20 or so monthly fees most Internet service providers charge.

Less than two years after the splashy debut of Bigger.com, which promised lifetime Internet access for $59, the company has shut down, leaving 40,000 customers and more than $1.5 million in debts. The Internet service provider fell far short of its goal of becoming a national operation with 200,000 subscribers. It filed for bankruptcy protection last December, was taken over by new management but never recovered, and eventually sought Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation Oct. 9.

In yet another permutation of the wild and woolly Internet market, a new company is offering lifetime Internet use for a onetime fee of $60. The firm, bigger.net, began offering San Francisco-area customers unlimited lifetime use of the Net on Thursday, in exchange for ads that will appear in a 2 1/2-inch-by- 1/2-inch area on users' screens. The fee includes a year of electronic mail. After the first year, e-mail will cost $10 annually.
