Verizon CEO’s Comments Do Not Make Sense

Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam is promising a new wireless and wired cable TV package if the government were to approve their wireless spectrum purchase. Besides lacking any real details, we need to spectrum to provide the service to mobile devices, it does not make a lot of sense. No one has been successful offering mobile TV subscriptions, above and beyond your cable plan, Time Warner iPad app, so why would Verizon spend billions trying?

This sounds more like a plan to convince the Government to approve the spectrum purchase, while the new venture will surprisingly go nowhere for 18 months before being quietly cancelled – GigaOM
