For many people, hearing about dial-up Internet is a throwback to simpler times when the World Wide Web was in its infancy and full of unrealized potential. Companies like AOL, Earthlink, and NetZero were giants in the Internet industry because dial-up providers were some of the only Internet service providers on the market. For most of America, these companies slowly left the limelight, paving the way for popular broadband Internet service providers such as Spectrum. However, for many others in rural America, dial-up Internet providers are some of their only options for staying connected to the outside world.
Despite being seen as a relic of the past, companies like AOL are still very much alive today, doing most of their business in rural areas. The lack of adequate broadband in rural towns has forced many rural residents to rely on outdated forms of Internet for rural areas such as dial-up and DSL Internet. Although dial-up does not perform as well as fiber optic Internet and is much slower than every other Internet option, it is still cheap and readily available to customers in rural areas who do not have access to fiber optic Internet. A significant number of dial-up users have settled for dial-up because they are aware of the government and broadband companies’ slow progress on bringing broadband to highly remote rural areas. Fortunately, companies like UbiFi have worked for years on technology that will provide better solutions than dial-up’s nearly obsolete benefits.
