AOL is one of the largest online services of the 1990s, having over three million active users. The company is known for being one of the early pioneers of the internet, making it one of the most recognized brands in the US. After its merger with Time Warner, the company started to decline rapidly due to the rise of broadband technology, completely outclassing their dial-up services.
