Sprint Nextel Likely To Partner With Cable Companies
Oct 24, 2005, 1:20 PM by (staff)
Reports today indicate that Sprint Nextel is close to completing a deal to be the wireless partner for the US's three largest cable companies. Comcast, Time Warner and Cox are all considering selling Sprint service as part of their "triple play" bundles of TV, internet and phone service. Cable companies can offer home phone service using VOIP technology like Vonage, however offering cellular phone could be complementary or even preferable to VOIP service. If these deals are signed, they could yield a large increase in the number of Sprint Nextel subscribers, especially if the companies offer discounts to users signing up for bundles.
