I wonder how many people are still using dial-up!

Online media group AOL Inc on Wednesday reported first-quarter revenue grew on strength in its advertising business, but shares tumbled on concerns that profits were still mostly coming from a shrinking dial-up platform.

"The core issue with this company is can they make content profitable?" said Ben Schachter, an analyst with Macquarie Research. "What you see every quarter is the only thing making money is the membership group. They are clearly going in the right direction but we want to see more progress."

AOL posted an operating loss of almost $5 million from its media sites, including Patch, the group of hyperlocal websites, the Huffington Post, Engadget and TechCrunch. AOL spent more than $100 million to get Patch off the ground.AOL Posts Q1 Revenue Increases [uk.reuters.com]

Or how many people are continuing to pay for it because it's on auto-bill and they've forgotten all about it.

Interestingly, 6% of U.S. Internet users still use dial up [post-gazette.com]. That's down a bit from 3 years ago, according to a WebmasterWorld discussion [webmasterworld.com] started by Brett.

heh... My B-I-L for one! And, yes, it's with AOL.

About once a year he gives me his current PC, because it becomes
so infested with Windows' viruses, and useless add-ons that it
degenerates to something like an IBM PC Jr. Then he goes out and
buys a new one. He is totally oblivious to his klew-less-ness.

I scrape the Windows stuff off my "new" PC -- install linux --
and have a new, screaming workstation.
