AT&T and Yahoo have joined forces to offer subscribers of their high-speed Internet service an integrated voice-over IP (VoIP) application, United Press International (UPI) reports.

The two companies will release a dual-branded edition of the Yahoo messenger service with voice capabilities, according to UPI.

AT&T firms will now be Yahoo’s network termination providers of choice for the VoIP services, UPI reports.

“AT&T Yahoo messenger with voice enhances and adds value to our broadband service,” said Scott Helbing, chief marketing officer with AT&T’s consumer unit, according to UPI. “It also underscores our commitment to lead the industry in delivering the next generation of integrated communications and entertainment services.”
