AOL still working to move away from dial-up

AOL’s new publisher tool to compete with Google, Armstrong says it’s back in “ad tech game” — paidContent:

From a larger business context, the ad tech offerings are also part of Armstrong’s efforts to refashion AOL into a company that no longer has to rely on its legacy dial-up internet subscriptions. This has meant creating two other separate divisions: one dedicated to its media properties, and another dedicated to its ad technology. Recent earnings reports show the two newer divisions are performing well from a revenue standpoint but are still waiting for profits to roll in.

While I don’t want to diminish what AOL has done with its moves into digital media, the fact that it’s 2013 and AOL still earns so much of its revenue from dial-up service is ridiculous.
