There are those ppl who just want to do e-mail, are comfortable with
dial-up, don¹t want to pay for than $5-10 for internet, and can¹t get
anything else.

When I sold my business in January, we still had 4 PRI circuits that were
providing Dial-Up access using Livingston Portmaster 3's. I bet those things
will run for another 5 years! :)

Dial Up still has a place in many areas where Broadband cannot
cost-effectively reach. Better to have Dial Up than nothing at all.
