If you read the numbers again they say 10% don't want internet and 8% can't get internet, so that leaves 15% truly on dial-up. I would cut out a couple of percent of people that don't even know what they have and you are probably 10-12% that are still on dial-up to get on the internet.
And 75% of those people probably don't get on more than once a month or its public access (libraries or run-down internet cafes), so does it really affect most websites? I don't think it does. I will still optimize my site to run faster, but I am not going to go overboard focusing on making it dialup friendly.
