AOL is one of the world’s leading Internet service providers. Born in the United States, it stands for America Online as it was originally an American internet provider and has since grown to become a leading global media conglomerate supplying broadband to the UK and various countries around the world, meanwhile also publishing software packages and distributing news via its high-profile websites.
Formed in 1989 as Quantum Computer Services, AOL was among the first firms in history to offer an instant messaging program on the early Internet – this was known as AIM (AOL Instant Messenger). This revolutionary communicative method propelled the firm to prominence: by 2001 AOL had become one of the biggest online companies in existence. Its broadband was famous for having a dynamic IP address, its software was famous for being hard to remove from ‘infected’ PCs, and its core website network was popular enough to make AOL one of the top 5 web search engines (their search tool is now powered by Google).
Holding both print and online media outlets in its portfolio, AOL’s investments over the past 15 years have had visible, wide-ranging effects on the progression of the internet in general.
