Verizon Bundling Services
from the seems-smart dept
I never quite understood the point in breaking up AT&T, since it seemed like they could present nice bundles of services to their customers. However, they appear to have no interest in doing so. AT&T Broadband provides both my cable modem serivce and my cable TV service – and yet they refuse to consolidate the two onto a single bill – claiming that “those are completely separate businesses”. Meanwhile, it seems the competition has other (better) ideas. Verizon has announced plans to bundle long-distance, local, wireless and DSL services into a single package. This seems like a smart move that gives consumers what they want in one single package. We’ll see if it lasts – of if they’ll end up splitting them apart like other companies have.
