BellSouth Corp. and MyWay.com, a personalized portal developed by CMGI, announced a strategic alliance under which BellSouth, using the capabilities of MyWay.com, will create a portal allowing users to customize the content and applications they access. BellSouth customers will be able to access their personalized portals not only through traditional dial-up but also via broadband and wireless connections, including interactive pagers, wireless phones and personal digital assistants. In return for distributing MyWay.com's services, BellSouth will receive an undisclosed minority equity stake in MyWay.com. The basic Internet portal service is scheduled to go live in January.
