Akamai will deliver AT&T Web content
Cambridge’s Akamai Technologies Inc. is teaming up with AT&T Inc. to begin delivering Web content for the telecommunications giant. The agreement ends a longtime rivalry between Akamai and AT&T in the business of content delivery network services, which allow video and other information to be sent over the Internet. It also gives Akamai access to a vast new customer base. News of the deal Thursday pushed Akamai stock up 10 percent, or $3.56, to close at $39.06. Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
