BT! and! Yahoo! hold! hands!

Marketing stuff

BT and Yahoo! are best buddies today after announcing a joint marketing deal.

In the next couple of weeks or so the top yodelling Internet company will begin offering its Yahoo! UK Plus service - which includes a spam blocker, instant messaging, email, parental controls, digital photo storage, anti-virus software etc - to the 100,000 or so punters of BT's no-frills, access only product, BT Broadband.

The service costs from £4.99 a month.

Oh, and Yahoo! will plug BT Broadband to its punters.

And, that's it - apart from all that guff about how pleased they are to be involved in the deal. ®
