Verizon bundles wireline, wireless

Verizon Communications has taken a step beyond the single bill for wireline and wireless and a step closer to true wireline/wireless network integration--though it's certainly not there yet.

The offer sounds a lot like AT&T's Unity plan. Expect the nation's largest telcos to continue to take baby steps toward deeper, more integrated fixed-mobile converged services until customer demand becomes more apparent.
