One little town in my area (with about 400 people total, meaning about 150 houses) was a given a grant of over half a million dollars so they could rent a little building for 3 years, and staff it to show people how to use the internet. Of course, they'll now have broadband.
Probably 80% of those residents are between the ages of 75-100...our tax dollars at work.
More on topic, I would bet those on dialup (and who CHOOSE to be on dialup) are not going to be big online shoppers (the ones who don't trust the internet, don't want to put their credit card info online, etc)
...and if they do shop, are the ones who will place very small orders.
