Cable company consolidation may impact industry's Wi-Fi ambitions

Speculation about the next round of consolidation in the cable industry is well underway, and the question becomes how other new tie-ups between the major cable MSOs could potentially alter the cable industry's broader Wi-Fi service strategy. If Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR), which lags behind other operators in delivering Wi-Fi services, were to make a successful run for Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), some analysts speculate it would make Wi-Fi services a top priority. Another possibility is that other players could follow Cablevision's (NYSE: CVC) "Wi-Fi first" approach by offering voice over Wi-Fi service. FierceCable takes a look at the possibilities in this new report.
