Broadband players making moves...
BT is eyeing up the UK division of Tiscali with a view to an acquisition, according to press reports.
A report in The Times has fingered BT as a suitor for the Italian ISP - despite Tiscali's insistence its UK unit is not up for sale.
BT declined to comment on "rumour and speculation".
This is not the first time a suitor has been linked with Tiscali UK - back in April a Sunday Telegraph report suggested Vodafone had identified it as a possible takeover target.
In separate broadband news, media reports suggest Orange has pulled out of the bidding to buy AOL's UK unit, leaving BSkyB and Carphone Warehouse - the two shortlisted suitors - to fight it out.
AOL and Orange declined to comment on the reports.
An AOL spokesman added that "negotiations are ongoing with a number of parties".
