They already sold AOL
They already sold AOL's access business in the UK, to Carphone Warehouse, and based on CPW's recent statements re the financial effects of absorbing AOL ("our numbers are affected because we may have made a mistake buying AOL" - almost), Time Warner won't find it easy to get any worthwhile amount for those bits of AOL which they still own.
Has Tiscali's ISP access business been sold yet, the one which back in June was going to be sold "tomorrow"?
Seems you can't *give* ISPs away at the moment. Not crap ones anyway.
