AOL hanging up on dial-up customers?

AOL recently informed customers that beginning next month, AOL will charge dial-up subscribers $25.90 per month. The price won't be that much of a shock, since it's $2 more than those dial-up customers are paying now. More important, it's equal to what high-speed DSL (digital subscriber line) or cable subscribers pay to get AOL services such as e-mail and customer support along with high-speed Internet access.

The price jump shows just how important it is to the Internet giant to get more of its customers onto broadband. It has led to an obvious question for longtime AOL customers: Who wouldn't move to broadband when it costs the same price?

I was using compuserve in 1990 and got charged by the minute. When AOL came out, it was the 'IN' thing to have name@aol.com as your email address. I have to say AOL has made great contribution to what we have today in terms of internet activity bringing in all the young "geeks" and "geeks" want to be of tomorrow.
