I kid you not: AOL still has 3.5 million loyal dial-up subscribers as of this very moment. Just take a minute to think about all the words in that sentence that are insane, specifically all of them. Dial-up was pretty awful even before there were alternatives, and AOL was pretty awful even in the world of dial-up providers. The fact that AOL has somehow managed to hang on to that many faithful dial-up devotees amazes me.
Granted, AOL still has an overall declining user base. They lost 630,000 subscribers over the past year, but that's actually their lowest Q3 loss because, I can't believe I'm saying this, recent promotions have actually brought 200,000 new subscribers to AOL, in 2011. Really though.
