AT&T + BellSouth = IYP Status Quo

The proposed merger of AT&T and Bell South has some very interesting implications for the whole two-tier Internet/net neutrality debate (which we’ll be covering separately), but as far as Internet Yellow Pages (IYP) goes, the story is pretty ho-hum. After all, the companies are already partners in YellowPages.com, and they’ve already defined their ambitions in the area. But here’s one semi-farfetched idea.

Not that YellowPages.com content currently needs such fat pipes, but we’re talking future here.
