  1. What they should be doing is buying Earthlink so they can get access to the Wireless Mesh Network these folks are building nationwide.
    They already have made attempts at bidding on Muni Wireless Metworkswithout much if any success.
    When combined with the new AWS (Cell) spectrum they own and Sprints partnership to build this voice network they would be able to effectively compete with AT&T and Verizon Wireless in their markets.


  2. Jacomo,

    when that Earthlink network works, they should consider buying it then. I think what TIme warner needs to do is get its house in order. If there is a company will all the assets to win in the post broadband world, it is Time Warner, if only they can get out of their own way. Politics killed many a great company, and why should it be any different this time around.

  3. Despite what CableLabs would have you believe, cable really does face some very serious challenges in the near term. They will be hard pressed to compete with Verizon’s and AT&T’s fiber offerings without huge investments in their networks. That could be one reason why TW wants to off the C.

  4. I think its a case of competitor envy and the grass being greener on the other side… perhaps they look at Fox which hit a home run with Myspace and think “we should do something like that”.


    Needless to say, somewhat shortsighted…
