I try to avoid video conference calls at all costs. I try to avoid ALL conference calls but especially calls where numerous people check in from across the country, each bringing their own set of technical issues and ways of dragging the call down.
One would imagine that video conference calls would have gotten much easier by now, especially with the major advances in every day technology. Nope. Probably because some people are on an iPhone 6 level of tech and some are still using dial-up. Yes, people still use dial-up.
2.1 million: That’s how many people still use AOL’s dial-up service. A sobering reminder for your Friday afternoon before you leave work to go out and enjoy the weekend: 2.1 million Americans are still subscribed to AOL’s dial-up Internet service.
