A new survey from Compete says consumers would be very interested in buying their wireless service from their existing telco or cable supplier. The survey, released this week, said an online poll showed 43 percent of consumers would be "likely" or "very likely" to consider cell service from their existing telecom provider. Only 19 percent said they currently have bundles cell service.
