Joining Products And Services

Verizon Wireless and Time Warner Cable recently announced they teamed up to offer new packages.

Hawaii customers can now purchase packages of Oceanic Time Warner Cable residential TV, Internet and phone services and Verizon Wireless smartphones and tablets from both companies, and may be eligible to receive a Visa prepaid debit card by mail (up to $200).

“This is a big win for customers looking for a more complete entertainment and communications offering for inside the home and wherever they go,” says Bob Barlow, president of Oceanic Time Warner Cable.

“The joining together of products and services from Time Warner Cable and Verizon Wireless into a single offer provides customers more choice, convenience and greater value.”

Adds Russ Preite, region president for Verizon Wireless:

“Our collaboration with Time Warner Cable was built on the foundation that wireless communications and entertainment are important in the lifestyles of our mutual customer base.

“Our goal is to deliver a solid product with long-term value to the end user, resulting in an enjoyable experience. Oceanic Time Warner Cable continues to deliver quality entertainment and communications services in Hawaii, and the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is the perfect complement to round out the package.”

You can select from a range of offers that include residential TV, Internet, home phone and mobile service. One example is Time Warner Cable’s Ultimate Internet service, which can be purchased along with a Verizon Wireless data plan, smart-phone or tablet.
