RCN Goes Wireless in Boston


Cable overbuilder RCN said Monday that it cut a deal with MobilePro that will allow to offer wireless high-speed Internet access, beginning in Boston.

RCN hasn’t yet set pricing for the offering, which will be branded RCN Wireless. The company boasted that the wireless Internet service will allow it to market a “quadruple play” of digital cable, cable modem service, telephone service and wireless Internet service.

Bethesda, Md.-based MobilePro said it counts more than 20,000 wireless broadband customers through its Kite and Waz metro brands.
