This is interesting. The actual deal that AT&T has right now with the DirectTv bundle is not too bad for the first year that is.

 

If Comcast could do a better deal I might be tempted.

I really think Comcast is better working with Verizon. Also, if a Republican administration wins, I can envision a possible merger between Comcast and Verizon, which would be much better for Comcast than a merger between them and T-Mobile and a merger between them and Sprint would be.

Comcast is kind of super hated tho. I don't think them entering a market where the customer has other choices will prove to be very successful.

I can't see Comcast being good for any wireless carrier, and whichever carrier they merge with (if they do), is going to have a negative customer outlook towards. Verizon though has been quite similar to Comcast in business operations though, and they've both had a partnership together of sorts, so if Comcast is going to get more seriously involved in wireless, Comcast would be best working with Verizon.

I can see it but in the non Fios areas Verizon is tied up with Centurylink as a package deal (my friend gets a decent discount from his package deal with Centurylink).

The other note is Verizon has already gone down this road with Comcast when they bought out spectrum from the cable companies. They scuttled it then when they decided it wasn't working out for them. Not sure what would change now.

Verizon and Comcast are not going to merge.

As spotty as my Comcrap has been, I seriously doubt I would change.  I have had three service techs at my home in the past four months.  Every time they fix one issue, another one pops up.  And when they return to fix that issue, the other returns.

I like Comcast  :hee:

 

 

But I would agree that Verizon would be the best bet for them. What I'm worried about though is if this happens, what will happen to Sprint and T-Mobile. It will be even tougher for them to compete and all likely would hurt them both; then there may be talks of another merger between those two...

I have no opinion àbout whether or not I like what I'm about to say, though this is what I can see happening after the Presidential changeover, if it were to be a Republican administration that gets in.

 

We all want Sprint to do well, and hope their success is what ultimately happens. Plus, I doubt any of us wants Sprint to be sold to Comcast, ever, though we've at least got to see that as a possibility, just as all carriers are potential targets of Comcast.

 

We also know how Masa wants to acquire T-Mobile. 8f that doesn't end up happening and say that AT&T were to acquire T-Mobile, then what carrier is left for Comcast to acquire.

 

If Masa doesn't get T-Mobile, which I highly disregard the reports of Comcast getting T-Mobile since T-Mobile just isn't large enough for them, then Masa has the choice of going through with NGN, or unfortunately sell to Comcast.

 

If Comcast were to merge with Verizon, that shuts down the possibility of Comcast getting Sprint, which I believe they may do only for the spectrum and after some time for Sprint to grow more from now, or else get much cheaper to buy.

 

As Comcast already has close connections with Verizon, with both companies being so large, it makes sense for Verizon and Comcast to merge, though will only happen under a Republican, especially Trump.

It does not make sense for them to merge because they are so large.

 

That is not what this article is about. Its about Comcast developing another revenue generating stream. You don't see Apple merging with Intel just because Apple is using their processors in their computers. Comcast is just going to possibly use the Verizon network.

When I used the term "large" revenue is part of that. I'm trying to lessen the length of my posts, so I used a simplistic short word to describe. Revenue though isn't all, there also is coverage and current subscribers, all which make Verizon a practical choice for Comcast. Although, revenue is the major point of it, for sure.
