Time Warner, which recently ended its relationship with Sprint Nextel for the Pivot wireless offering that gave the cable operator a quadruple play, gave some nebulous information regarding the company's interest in wireless during the company's first-quarter conference call. Time Warner CEO Glenn Britt noted that Time Warner's wireless strategy "really hasn't changed for some time now. We haven't seen a big demand for the quadruple play to date. More interesting to me is the notion of broadband wireless … and how that might relate to wireline networks."
That doesn't tell us much about the possibility of Time Warner forming a relationship with other cable operators to make a WiMAX consortium with Sprint Nextel. A rumor that hasn't resurfaced lately. Also, Time Warner, Comcast, Cox Communications and Advance Newhouse own AWS spectrum but continue to be coy about how they are going to use it.
