The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Char­ter, one of the largest ca­ble com­pa­nies in the U.S., says it’s not in­ter­ested in buy­ing wire­less car­rier Sprint.

Sprint didn’t an­swer a re­quest for com­ment Mon­day.

Sprint’s CEO has also talked this year about the ben­e­fits of com­bin­ing with T-Mo­bile, the No. 3 mo­bile car­rier. The two walked away from do­ing a deal dur­ing the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion be­cause of reg­u­la­tory op­po­si­tion.
