Time Warner Cable exec promises to expand cable firm's Wi-Fi business

Rob Cerbone runs all of Time Warner Cable's (NYSE: TWC) wireless activities, including the company's relationship with Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) and certain mobile apps, such as TWC's WiFi Finder. Both TWC and Comcast have grown into leaders in Wi-Fi hotspot deployments and are members of the CableWiFi Alliance. Indeed, at the end of the first quarter of this year, Time Warner Cable operated close to 33,000 hotspots, having deployed more than 3,000 in the quarter.

"We are continuing to deploy throughout the areas where we have Wi-Fi today, and what you'll see is that we will be more aggressive in deploying access points," Cerbone told FierceWirelessTech Editor Tammy Parker in a recent interview.
