Google's YouTube division said it is in talks with all major mobile operators on an agreement to pool efforts to reduce the impact of video content on telecommunications networks.
YouTube, the world’s most popular video-streaming site, is also in discussions with handset manufacturers, whose devices can help optimize the flow of data over increasingly clogged data networks, Andrey Doronichev, an executive responsible for the company’s mobile offering, said. “We’re in the middle of the process.” He declined to name any operators or manufacturers.
