Would you like a free year's subscription to AOL, the online service that gives full access to the Internet as well as an online version of the Independent? Would you like to tell us what you think of Network? Now you can combine the two. Send a brief analysis of Network - what you like, what you hate: we are looking for constructive as well as destructive suggestions, including ideas for specific features. If your name is one of the first 10 drawn from the entries, you will receive an AOL subscription. If you are already online, you will be able to pass it on.

AOL carries most of the text of our daily and Sunday papers as well as a range of its own services. These include digital guides to London, Glasgow and Edinburgh (as well as cities abroad), the Electronic Gourmet and a guide to the Wimbledon Championships. When you log on you will be looking at AOL's European service, but you can click your way into the US or Asian edition. AOL in Europe is a joint venture between America Online, the biggest online service in the world, and the German publisher Bertelsmann.

You get Internet access with the latest Netscape browser software, too. But the best thing about AOL is that it is so easy to use - ideal for technophobes wanting to dip a toe into the electronic waters. Send entries to network@independent.co.uk, or Network/AOL, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5DL.

If you don't want to enter, but still want to join AOL, the weekly subscription is pounds 5.95. The special free number for Independent readers is 0800 376 5376.
