So many of my friends are still stuck on AOL just because they've had their e-mail go there for the past decade. Personally, Hotmail and G-mail do it for me so that I have to freedom to choose my ISP (and not let them dictate to me) without having "e-mail regrets".
your friends can leave aol at anytime and still use their email address still.

Do you have Comcast? And, if you do, they don't throttle your downloads? I've been having a hard time with everything - from online backup services (see my entry earlier in this post), to large game demos, to torrents. I would think if they practice throttling in one area, they should do the same for another :

Not throttling here, but then again I live in an area with direct competition by a city owned cable/HSI company. But as of this moment Comcast has opened the connections to the limit of Docsis 2.0 for downstream speeds.

I don't get why people think DSL is slow. At least you get a constant speed. I've seen cable connections go from 20Mbps down to dial-up speeds and back up again. The only time I've seen a DSL connection do that was when the phone line was physically damaged.

You're right my connection goes from 34Mbps to 20Mbps and back up, but no matter what is still way faster than DSL.

They can now... but back then, AOHell was chargin' like $15 per month for "bring your own access" service just to keep your email account.

WHAT A RIP!!!

Either way, these folks are STILL using AOL dial up service as well... Kinda like my Grandma who swore she'd NEVER switch and buy a color TV in favor of watching her floor console B&W TV back in the 80s (until years later when she started watching other people's color TVs and changed her mind based on the experience. )
