AT&T's Lurie: Our wide-area wireless network gives us an advantage over cable in delivering mobile video

AT&T (NYSE: T) is aware that cable operators are trying to give their customers access to video services inside and outside the home, but Glen Lurie, president and CEO of AT&T Mobility, says that the industry segment lacks one thing: wide-area wireless.

After completing its acquisition of DirecTV, AT&T launched offers immediately that incorporated smartphones and TVs for one price. Lurie says there's a lot more to come.

In an interview with FierceWireless, Lurie addressed mobile video and a number other topics like Internet of Things and the forthcoming 5G standard. Check out the Hot Seat interview here.
