AOL Still Makes Most of Its Money Off Millions of Dial-Up Subscribers

Hayley Tsukayama, reporting for The Washington Post back in August:

AOL considers itself an advertising and media company. But it still relies on 2.3 million dial-up subscription customers for the bulk of its profits.

The company’s latest earnings report on Wednesday showed that while the firm pulls in most of its revenue from advertising, it still makes the most money off the division that includes those old-fashioned dial-up subscribers.

They should have kept TUAW and shut down AOL. Jiminy. (Via Jim Lipsey.)
