Weekly output: your cable company as your wireless service

I spent much of this week working on some longer-term projects, so there’s only one published story in the list below.

6/29/2019: Should you let your cable company sell you wireless service, too?, USA Today

If you get your residential Internet service from a cable operator, you may also be able to sign up for wireless service from that firm–“from” meaning “resold from one of the big four wireless carriers.” This column looks at the current wireless offers from Comcast and Spectrum as well as an upcoming service from Altice that will also run on infrastructure built out by the firm behind the Optimum cable brand.

Although the column hasn’t been tagged as corrected, we did have to correct it after I erred by relying on a Comcast tech-support page showing limited voice-over-LTE support to warn readers that Xfinity Mobile’s VoLTE was lacking. Comcast PR told me Sunday that this page had somehow stayed up despite being well out of date, but I can’t blame Comcast too much: The ages of the phones that page cited should have gotten me thinking that something was off there.
