My wife's parents (ages 78 and 81) still have aol dialup. They live on a small income and broadband is just more expensive. But as she only checks email occasionally, which is mostly either spam or teabagger derp emails from even older relatives, they just don't care that much.

It's just insane that broadband costs more than dial up-even the cheapest broadband tier available here.
