SPOTLIGHT: Some cable MSOs weary about wireless


Liberty Global and Cablevision execs aren't as bullish as some of their cohorts when it comes to completing the quad play. Liberty has rolled out an MVNO service in Japan, Holland and Switzerland, but says it has little to show on its bottom line for the effort. Cablevision is part of the Sprint-Cable MSO consortium that will probably launch wireless services next year. Cablevision CEO Jim Dolan (no relation) told analysts during his last quarterly conference call that the wireless component "is a relatively small idea." Dolan went on to shoot down the idea of bundling wireless with the company's triple play offerings: I find it hard to concede that a wireless add-on to a triple play...
