Throwback Thursday: AOL? LOL

Throwback Thursday: AOL, LOL

Remember the days of dial-up service and 56K modem speed? I came across this ’90s gem while doing some pre-spring cleaning last weekend. (Why did I still have it? Who knows?)

If you have broadband service, consider yourself fortunate. According to a report in The Washington Post last year, 2.5 million people still use AOL dial-up — about 2.2 percent of U.S. households. Many AOL users live in rural areas where broadband isn’t available. Others say they can’t afford the faster service. And still others apparently are asleep at the wheel, unaware they’re still paying the monthly service fee.
