Microsoft will market SBC Communications and Yahoo's co-branded broadband Internet service to its retail software customers, the companies said.

The deal will open a new marketing channel for SBC Yahoo's digital subscriber line (DSL) service. Microsoft will recommend a business version of SBC Yahoo DSL to retail clients who purchase its Business Solutions software. SBC Yahoo DSL's business edition costs the same as its $26.95-a-month consumer product but offers network management and online marketing tools.
