Verizon Teams Up With Yahoo In Internet Content Deal
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)Subscribers to Verizon Communications Inc.'s high-speed Internet services will be able to access customized and premium content from Web giant Yahoo Inc. under a multiyear agreement that combines the companies' offerings into a single brand.
The deal, whose terms were not disclosed, is the latest example of an Internet provider teaming up with a content company to offer more than just a fast connection. For their part, content providers receive greater exposure and a slice of monthly per-subscriber fees.
Terms of the deal announced Monday were not disclosed.
Verizon is the second major U.S. phone company to partner with Yahoo. Since 2002, Yahoo and SBC Communications Inc. have been bundling their offerings. Yahoo also has agreements with British Telecom and Rogers Communications, a Canadian cable company.
New York-based Verizon also has a deal with Microsoft Corp.'s MSN to provide content to its customers. Starting this summer, Yahoo will become the preferred partner, said Bobbi Henson, a Verizon spokeswoman.
