"BellSouth's alliance with Yahoo is a key part of our ongoing effort to enhance our customers' online experience," stated Keith Cowan, president of marketing and product management at BellSouth. "We are committed to offering a broadband service that exceeds customer expectations and are excited at the prospect of partnering with Yahoo to provide this new co-branded service," he added.
