Study: Subscribers want more bundled services

According to a recent study by In-Stat, telephone companies are not offering bundled wireline and wireless services to enough of their subscribers. The study found that only 18 percent of customers have bundled wireline and wireless services, while the number who want such services is closer to 31 percent. The study also found that increased use of wireless handsets is harming the landline long-distance services of telcos. Analysts at In-Stat say that cable companies will start picking up the slack in bundled offerings where the telcos are failing. This is evidenced by Sprint's recent deal with Comcast, Time Warner, Cox and Advance/Newhouse to offer wireless service with the companies' cable TV, high-speed Internet and landline telephone offerings.
