ComcastTime Warner CableCox Communications and Advance/Newhouse Communications (Bright House Networks) are conducting a search for execs with experience in wireless communications, the AP reported, citing an unnamed source.

The four MSOs already have a joint venture with Sprint, through which they have begun offering a wireless service, called Pivot, in a handful of test cities. Sprint recently said that it wouldn’t bring Pivot to any more of its stores.

The lack of success with Pivot would lead MSOs to look for alternatives to Sprint, and it would instigate a search for experienced teams to sift through the possibilities and make wireless happen.
