The FCC's net neutrality win in a Washington, D.C., federal appeals court could dampen the enthusiasm of Verizon and AT&T in their pursuit of Yahoo, according to MoffettNathanson.
Verizon and AT&T are preparing for a third round of bidding for Yahoo's online assets, Reuters reported.
AT&T appears to be giving Verizon a run for its money in the Yahoo sweepstakes.
Even as Yahoo considers second-round offers for its core business from a shortlist of potential buyers-- including Verizon, which is offering $3 billion for at least part of the company-- the search engine and online advertising provider is considering putting up around 3,000 of its patents for sale in a separate auction.
AT&T is unlikely to mount a serious bid for Yahoo, according to the financial analysts at Barclays. Thus, Verizon appears to remain the leading buyer for the internet company.
AT&T has submitted a bid for Yahoo and remains active in the auction of Yahoo's core internet business, according to a new report from Bloomberg. AT&T's interest in Yahoo puts the company directly into competition with Verizon, which is also reportedly bidding on Yahoo's business and reportedly remains the frontrunner.
Yahoo's auction of its core Internet business could see bids in the range of $2 billion to $3 billion, far below previous predictions that the assets would fetch as much as $8 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The ability to provide great quality of service and quality of experience could mean the difference between survival and being doomed in the growing over-the-top video tsunami. As providers move their advanced online video products from the hype phase to the product phase, how do they get and maintain quality across the ecosystem?
AT&T is shifting the web properties once hosted by Yahoo to a new provider, Synacor, including its att.net portal, search feature, and branded applications, The Wall Street Journal reports.
On Saturday, Yahoo provided the first-ever live stream of the fabled Berkshire Hathaway investor conference, giving people at home a look inside the goings-on of the annual event held at BH headquarters in Omaha.
