Mobility and Cable Operators

Barron’s writes:

As early as next year, cellular voice providers such as Verizon Wireless will offer phones that transmit not only voice and Internet connections, but broadcast television programs.

Cable customers can’t use all three services while they are walking around — a so-called quadruple play. Cable companies still don’t even offer wireless voice communications.

That may force operators like Comcast and Time Warner to spend money on building wireless networks or taking major stakes in wireless operators, such as Sprint Nextel, which could hurt their profits and cash flow.
