Charter Will Get into Mobile: Just Needs to Figure Out the Business Model
Assuming the Charter Communications acquisition of Time Warner Cable succeeds, mobility strategy is likely to come to the fore.
“Should we have a mobile product...and the answer is yes, we should ultimately figure out how to create our service infrastructure everywhere we are and where our customers are,” said Tom Rutledge, Charter Communications CEO.
“We continue to rollout our Wi-Fi product and the bulk of wireless activity on smartphones today is on the Wi-Fi product that we've deployed,” Rutledge said. “And so I think there are opportunities, business opportunities to create mobility for us whether that's with T-Mo or any other provider for that matter.”
