Charter Follows Comcast With Plan to Offer Mobile Phone Service
The cable industry's march into the wireless business is
starting to look like a stampede. A day after Comcast Corp.
said it will introduce a Wi-Fi-based phone service by the
middle of next year, Charter Communications Inc. said it's
exploring a similar option -- potentially entering a market
dominated by Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc.

Remember, these guys aren't building any new mobile networks. They just
piggyback on the existing ones like Verizon and AT&T, and try leach Wi-Fi
from their subscribers' cablem modems! Crooks.
Worse service! Fewer choices! Higher prices! Thanks Congress!
Thanks FCC! Thanks DOJ. Follow the merger money to the top.
And this is with a Democratic president. A GOP president would
just sell all our souls to these guys en masse. You'd be
able to smell the stink on the other side of the galaxy.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
