Of the 1,005 consumers polled for the survey, 55 percent said they would prefer to purchase local, long-distance and wireless telephone, cable and satellite television, Internet and other communications services from a single company, as opposed to 33 percent who would prefer multiple companies.

Survey respondents also said that their home communications needs would best be served by a local (40 percent) or long-distance (21 percent) telephone company, as opposed to a satellite (7 percent) or cable (7 percent) television company.
