With Verizon MVNO and 10M hotspots, Comcast poised to fight for wireless share

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Comcast will combine its 10 million Wi-Fi spots with its Verizon (NYSE: VZ) MVNO agreement, plus some new spectrum it picks up at the FCC's upcoming incentive auction, to launch the first successful cable mobile virtual network operator.

"Comcast's decision to trigger the MVNO agreement [with Verizon] is likely only the first in a series of dominoes to fall," Craig Moffett, an analyst at MoffettNathanson LLC, told Bloomberg. Moffett added that "it probably also raises the odds that Comcast would eventually try to acquire a mobile operator, presumably T-Mobile." Article
