What If Your Cable Company Offered Mobile Phone Service?

from the who-needs-a-landline dept

The lines keep blurring. While everyone in the cable and telecom business keeps talking up the “triple play” aspect of trying to offer “voice, video and data,” the voice part is almost always landlines. For the cable providers, it’s been the push towards a VoIP offering – but Time Warner Cable is now saying that maybe they’ll enter the mobile phone business instead. It seems like just random speculation at this point, as they don’t expect to invest much in the area, but it seems like the perfect target for some sort of MVNO offering, where they just partner with an existing mobile carrier and slap the Time Warner brand on it.
