CarphoneWarehouse buys AOL UK

Carphone Warehouse has won the auction to buy the UK's third-largest internet provider, AOL UK.


It will be keeping the AOL name and the US firm's policy of charging customers. Carphone Warehouse is funding the acquisition through an extension of its existing debt facilities, and will keep AOL UK's management and infrastructure.

Yes i've heard edi...guess that is why, in the last month, AOL were readily handing out reduced monthly contracts (I had mine reduced from £19.99 to £9.99) with free wireless routers.
