People still use AOL. It’s true.

Data culled from AOL’s earnings report last week revealed that the company still has 2.3 million subscribers, which is interesting in and of itself.

But even more interesting is that subscription. For $59.88 a year you can get their baseline plan which includes, among other things, unlimited dial-up service — the only way to get online in a lot of rural areas.

It also includes two free wills from Hyatt Legal planning and — just to drive their target demographic point home — an AARP membership.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
