AOL used to be the internet gateway for 35 million Americans. Then the open Internet skyrocketed in popularity and AOL crashed and burned. Today they only have 4 million subscribers. Those 4 million are paying for AOL still! The website aol.com is free and has been for years.
However, if you were already paying for an account from before they made it free, you still have to. Unfortunately 80% off their subscribers are senior citizens. Last year alone they made $244 million from senior citizens. They’re scamming grandma!
