Re: Is Comcast on top now?

Verizon doesn't want to be in the wireline tv/telephone/internet business anymore. Its not profitable enough. Wireless is the most profitable for Verizon's shareholders with multi-year contracts, high early termination fees and low usage caps.

I wonder if Comcast will be in the wireless phone business someday...

Hopefully not, because I think "Xfinity Wireless" would fail miserably.

They will. The cable companies will have the option to become a MNVO after a certain period of time as it stated in the original article.

over time, the cable companies will have the option of selling Verizon Wireless' service on a wholesale basis.

You can bet Comcast won't want to keep reselling Verizon wireless service in areas they currently compete with FiOS, so they'll likely resell it on a wholesale "Xfinity" wireless basis.
