San Jose, California - November 1, 2004 - Over three-fourths (79 percent) of those with both cable TV and DSL would cancel their cable subscription if they could receive telephone, Internet and TV services from their telco, a new poll has revealed. More than half (55 percent) of the respondents would also choose their telco over the cable operator as the single provider of these services.

2Wire, a provider of broadband service platforms, polled 2,000 DSL subscribers to identify the major factors driving consumer demand for converged services. The majority of respondents indicated that they would subscribe to Voice over IP (VoIP), or would consolidate their telephone, Internet and TV services to a single provider, with the strongest motivation being cost savings.
