Sprint is helping cable operators deliver features such caller ID to TVs and PCs. There’s also voice mail to e-mail and voice mail alerts that go to mobile phones.
“It’s not enough anymore to simply deliver the same phone service the telephone companies provide,” said Mike Smith, director of marketing at Sprint Wholesale Services. “We are delivering solutions that will enable customers to better manage their in-home communications.”
Sprint already provides wholesale VoIP services to 14 cable operators.
