Dial-up Internet still lives, at least at AOL. Its latest earnings report shows 3 million subscribers. According to a post by Dan Frommer:
But did you know that AOL still has 3 million dialup “access” subscribers — generating a third of the company’s revenue and likely most of its profit? That might be more paying U.S. subscribers than Spotify and Hulu Plus have combined.
It’s been years since I bought a computer that offered a dial-up modem. I wonder what equipment these subscribers are using. Do you still have a dial-up modem somewhere? When was the last time you used dial-up?
