Verizon is reportedly exploring combination with Charter

The Wall Street Journal explains that talks between Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam and Charter officials are preliminary and that a deal might not happen. It’s also unknown if Charter is even open to a combination agreement. If something does materialize between the two companies, it would bring together Verizon’s 114 million wireless customers with Charter’s television audience of 17 million subscribers and a broadband business that counts 21 million. – Billy Steele, Engadget
