Interesting hotspot agreement reached by cable companies …

Five large cable operators said Monday they will join forces to give customers access to each other’s wireless Internet hot spots in the most sweeping Wi-Fi roaming agreement struck by the industry to date.

The consortium includes Comcast Corp., CMCSA +0.48% Time Warner Cable Inc., TWC +1.28% Cablevision Systems Corp., CVC +1.16% Bright House Networks LLC and Cox Communications Inc. Consumers will be able to access more than 50,000 Wi-Fi hot spots in the New York area, Los Angeles, Tampa, Orlando and Philadelphia. Most of the operators offer the service only as a perk to current broadband subscribers—but Time Warner Cable has offered a pay-as-you-go option for non-customers as well.
