AOL users face increased misery with the current shortlist for taking on their business. Guys, get out now. This doesn’t bode well.
AOL has reportedly shortlisted the potential buyers for its UK unit — BSkyB and Carphone Warehouse. Other rumoured bidders for AOL’s two million customers included BT and Orange but according to a source, quoted by Reuters, only two ISPs remain. Jonathon Miller, chief executive of AOL, said on Wednesday the sale of AOL’s European units remained on track, adding: “The sale process… is progressing, and we are hopeful that we will have reached agreements with the winning parties sometime in the fall.”
Apologies for the dive in my recent flurry of updates today. I’ll get to ya’all ASAP.
