Not really tech, but sentimental story with local connection.

Comcast et al. Will Have to Buy Mobile Operators to Survive, Says BTIG (Bsrron's Tech Trader Daily)
I don't always buy into everything BTIG espouses, such as in this csse.

But Comcast Cable CEO Neil Smit seemed to question the technology for the handoff between Cell snd Comcast WiFi hotspots snd the need for former: "We've build out the public spots based on the usage trends we see and I think it's – concerning the handoff between Wi-Fi and cellular, there is some technology out there. The question is whether you'd need to do the handoff or not and how seamless it would be. But we are looking at technology in that space as well." I took his comments as lesning towsrd a largely WiFi-based approach. ( Comcast Earnings Call, 2/3/2016).
