The crew gets a discounted rate on Internet, but definitely not free access.

This is surprising, I would have expected some level of internet access is provided to crew members for free to help out with crew morale.

Default A fee is charged...

...to limit use of the resource more than to get income. There are limited number of computers available for the crew to use. If no $$ was charged, the benefit could be abused by one or two crew members...to the detriment of everyone else. The crew has their own internet cafe area.
