It’s Dial-Up division accounts for $500 million dollars of AOL’s profit. Surprised they are making that much from dial-up with its shrinking user base as more and more people are moving to broadband.

AOL Dial-Up accounts for most of  their profit, so as Dial-Up is dying out in general, AOL is looking for other ways to profit such as content based sites like The Huffington Post, Engadget and TechCrunch to just name a few.

I still remember using AOL Dialup back in the early 2000’s before switching to Road Runner in about 2006. Surprised Dial-Up is still as popular as it is. Anyways, what do you think of the future of AOL will be once more and more people move over to broadband?
