In fact, he didn't sound all that crazy about wireless at all.
"The marketing evidence is mixed," he said of TWC's involvement with mobile service bundles, noting that "our [wireless] strategy really hasn't changed." He reiterated that wireless services "in terms of actual customers, so far, are not terribly exciting." (See TW Cable Has 15,000 WiMax Subs .)
"We are not really ready to say that this is a nonstarter; maybe we're just not doing it right," he added.
TWC appears more bullish on Wi-Fi, which the MSO is deploying in markets such as Los Angeles. Beyond that, Britt said the operator is exploring how it might bundle cable modem service with Wi-Fi and wireless services "for a single attractive price," with a promise to discuss this strategy in more detail in the coming months.
And it's unclear if TWC will plow any more money into Clearwire, which needs more funds to complete its buildout. Britt said the MSO certainly isn't obligated to expand its investment. TW Cable's rumored interest in investing in LightSquared did not come up on the call. (See Rumor: TW Cable Talking With LightSquared.)
He didn't say how or when TWC might use its AWS spectrum.
