AOL still has 5 million customers paying for dial-up! on clarkhoward.com
That's a lot of viruses and spyware.
Thats a lot of dummies and old people.
AOL training wheels for the internet...hate AOL
Umm The USA lags many other countries in broadband availability/coverage.
We do like to think we are ahead of everyone else though.
And POOR people..
Prodigy, AOL, and the other early online platforms were a good starting place for newbies to the internet. Many seniors don't feel comfortable without the platfrom. If they believe they are getting what they desire from the services, then AOL has a niche still.
I recall when dialup modems first became available.
110 baud or Somesuch? I started on 300 baud.
Broadband still isn't available in a lot or rural areas. Of course you can do a lot better than aol even if you're stuck with dialup.
What I really don't understand is the people with broadband who still pay to use the aol service. Now those are some friggin' idiots. Did I mention that's what we use where I work? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
And they wonder why they have to keep calling in the techs to clean out the system.
