Cable companies are turning to wireless to reach additional customers: Cable One is a cable operator that is using a DOCSIS-based wireless solution to extend its coverage. DOCSIS is a cable standard. Time Warner and Charter Cable have a slightly different take. While Cable One is using wireless to reach customers that it can’t get to using wires, Time Warner and Charter Cable are building Wi-Fi hotspots as an additional access service for customers. I believe that Vyyo at least once based some of its wireless radios on DOCSIS, though not necessarily to in an effort at targeting cable operators.
