Yahoo’s latest acquisition is all about digital content, but is unlikely to affect Canada anytime soon, says IDC Canada telecom analyst Lawrence Surtees.


“When I looked at the deal that Verizon did a year ago with AOL, and the executive rationale, I kind of smiled to myself and said, ‘it’s almost like Verizon is taking a page out of BCE’s playbook in Canada,'” Surtees says.


“We’ve been doing this for two decades… and they’re just starting to go down this route now... “It’s the tail wagging the dog,” Surtees says. “I would argue that Verizon’s following us."
