waiting to see what the catch is.
they won't be losing that revenue and not replaced it with something else.
they talk about their existing enterprise revenue, but removing ads is still a loss of revenue.

It'll probably remain free for a while, then become paid-for only.
Not that I use it - I'll avoid anything which has ads as much as possible.

Re: OpenDNS is going Ad-free

I pay the $9 a year for the filtering service, I don't seem them ditching the free ones.
