AOL seems to be in a slump these days with the decline of dial-up users around the world. So in a desperate move they’re going to be offering their services free in hopes that the ad revenue will save them.
The decision, announced Wednesday by AOL parent Time Warner Inc., removes the few remaining reasons for AOL subscribers to keep paying when they already have high-speed Internet access through a cable or phone company.
Taking also this quote:
Subscribers who dropped AOL within the past two years — about 6 million households, some with multiple e-mail addresses — will be able to reclaim their old AOL.com addresses simply by logging on with their old passwords.
Is this the beginning of the end of AOL as we know it?
