Streaming player Netflix has been involved in a bitter war of words with Verizon over buffering issues with both parties blaming the other.
Netflix has, however, struck a connection deal with Verizon as well as Comcast to provide a direct connection from broadband provider to viewer.
It has now struck a similar deal with AT&T. Deal terms were not disclosed, but earlier this year AT&T rejected a Netflix proposal for free interconnection. The agreement was reportedly made in May and will take effect in coming days, alleviating buffering.
US communications regulator the FCC is currently investigating who is at fault for the problems occurring with streaming Netflix content via some broadband operators.
