Netflix customers rejoice!

Your streaming speeds may soon be faster thanks to a deal between the online movie subscription provider and AT&T.

Netflix decided to pick-up some of the bill for faster streaming by connecting directly to AT&T, rather than using a third-party to deliver its service.

“We’re now beginning to turn up the connections, a process that should be complete in the coming days,” AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel said. Netflix confirmed that the two companies struck a deal in May, and they are working “to improve the viewing experience of our mutual subscribers.”

Netflix reluctantly reached a similar deal with ComCast and Verizon early this year, amid a public spat over who is responsible for sluggish speeds.
