AOL Dialup Service Still Costs $14.95 Per Month

Network 1 Comment on AOL Dialup Service Still Costs $14.95 Per Month 89

America Online has been in the news the past few days for the impending purchase by Verizon. What has surprised many people is that AOL still has approx. 2 million dialup subscribers.  Dialup and 56Kbps modems seem like something left back in the 90’s but apparently a lot of people still use it. Not only is this a service that is still being supported for legacy users, but you can go out and signup for it today if you wanted to.

For $14.95 per month you receive not only unlimited dialup access but also a slew of seemingly odd add ons  such as 8% cash back when you book travel through Priceline.com and Lifelock Identity Theft Protection. Where it gets a bit funny/ odd is where they throw in such cloud based services as 15GB of Online Storage for Photos and 5GB of Storage with Norton Online Backup.  Can you imagine uploading 15GB on a 56Kbps connection?

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
