Only Took 3 Years For AOL And Road Runner To Notice Synergy

from the took-'em-long-enough dept

Seems like an awful lot of AOL news today... Despite AOL and Time Warner merging over three years ago, it seems that they just realized that maybe (just maybe) there's some synergy between AOL and Time Warner's Road Runner service. People have been asking for ages when they would work together, and the answer is apparently now (finally). AOL and Road Runner have announced a plan to team up for broadband. In exchange for having AOL offer up Road Runner connections, Time Warner will be offering a channel of AOL content on their website - which should interest about three or four people.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    The title gave me a real scare

    I remember hearing speculation about AOL and Time Warner when they merged that AOL would take over Roadrunner. I hoped against hope that AOL would not take over Roadrunner and proceed to ruin it like they did to their own service and to others they had bought. The title of this message sacred me into thinking that that was what was happening now. Thankfully, it isn't happening... and on a further note, does anybody with Roadrunner actually go to the Roadrunner website? Its just a portal like every other portal.
