Project ID does not have access to IPFS network

I’m trying to connect to IPFS network with my basic free API.
Does a free account has no access to IPFS network?
Response to my request says:
project ID does not have access to this network, see

Docs seems to say that I should create a new API key and choose IPFS network,
but as a student it is a burden for me to upgrade my account just to get this done.

I’d be glad just to know if IPFS connecting feature is not for free accounts.
