Cablecos' phone offerings get a boost in the media

The mainstream media has discovered that cable companies are making a move into the home telephone market. That can only be good news for an industry segment that’s looking for income in every nook and cranny it can find (will it follow AT&T’s lead from last week and start offering home theater installations and computer tune-ups?)

Regardless, cablecos looking to dig deeper into telcos pockets will get a boost from the story, which mentions the demise of traditional landlines, the gap created by wireless and the VoIP offerings from cablecos that bring the best of both worlds together.

A recent SNL Kagen report said some 12 million U.S. households currently spurn landlines for wireless phones. The company says that number should more than double by 2012.
