AOL reportedly ready to shed dial-up

AOL is apparently ready to discard its dial-up service. Millions of people got their first look at the Web through AOL. In recent years, though, the service has hemorrhaged subscribers.
The Story

It said Earthlink might buy them out.

I hate to hear that. I've got an agreement with them for $9.99 for as long as I want it. This will probably void that.

They did announce yesterday but didn't mention selling it. They did though say they were splitting it up to run as a seperate company and that's probably in preperation to sell it or try.

If anyone does decide to buy it they will still be in a dying business and may let you keep a cheaper plan. There's less and less people on dialup every year and many are eliminating dial up telephony altogether.
