I have an older relative who just won't give up their dialup for roadband. They cite the difficulty of cancelling the service, even when I offer to cancel it for them. So along with the people who live in rural areas that can't get broadband I bet a big part of the group are older people.

I don't miss dialup. Taking 20 minutes to download a picture of a nude woman an MP3 was painful.
