This is what we are about to see, with Verizon, ATT and Comcast, owning most or the entire chain.
Comcocks is gonna have a big leg up with their installed hostage, I mean user base, they will add in some Quadplay Bundle and with it piggybacking on Your home comcast network, they will unfortunately gain market share fast.
