Sprint with Cable Connection

Cable companies interested in joining Sprint to combine cell phone services with cable TV services are beginning to discuss testing plans.

By combining the two services customers will have the option to watch and schedule DVR programming remotely. The cable companies and Sprint have also talked about allowing customers access to email accounts from the cable company’s broadband Internet services, the use of voice services, unlimited free calling, wireless and home voicemail boxes.

Of course, discussions are still being had but the plan is that testing will begin this summer. Some of the cities that the testing will be done in are Portland, OR., Austin and Raleigh, TX., and a few others throughout the states.

Pricing will be announced at a later time but hopes are high that widespread availability will be next year.
