The supply of AOL free trial CD’s at your local grocery store may have dried up long ago, though believe it or not, the service itself is still going relatively strong. According to the company’s most recent earnings release, AOL still has over 3.5 million subscribers to its dialup Internet service, and the decline seems to be slowing. Q3 represented the company’s smallest decline yet, even though the company lost just over 630,000 subscribers over the past 12 months.

Want another amazing statistic? According to AOL the average paid tenure of its subscribers is up to a whopping 10.6 years. This would suggest that the company’s remaining subscribers are either fiercely loyal, or many simply haven’t checked their credit card statements recently. Either way it’s a strong reminder that our governments need to work harder to provide proper broadband to all at reasonable prices.
