TW may sell dial up

September 20, 2007

Time Warner will “look hard” in the next 12 to 18 months at possibly selling off its AOL dial-up Internet access business, similar to its strategy in Europe. AOL, which restructured last year to offer most of its services for free, aims to focus exclusively on boosting online advertising sales both on its portal and across the Web.

Meanwhile, AOL is planning to pilot a free service offering users the chance to share personal photos, videos and music through one application. The 'Bluestring' site will give users about 5GB of memory, meaning they could store about 1,600 songs, 10,000 photos or 600 videos, depending on the file sizes.
