    One less competitor

    AT&T Inc. (T, $37.10, -$0.15, -0.40%) is reportedly eyeing either Akamai Technologies Inc. (AKAM, $36.80, +$1.36, +3.84%) or Limelight Networks Inc. (LLNW, $2.60, +$0.09, +3.59%) as a partner to resell services from one of their so-called content-delivery networks, which help speed big data loads like online video. Raymond James said the potential deal, first reported by trade site StreamingMediaBlog.com, won't help either company much. But shares of both companies were up, as their investors may be relieved to know AT&T isn't interested in competing with the content-delivery providers.
