A combination of Sprint and Charter would put together the fourth-largest US wireless carrier with the No. 2 USA cable company.

Sprint and Charter Communications are discussing a potential merger in a complicated transaction that would leave SoftBank in control of the combined entity, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

Wireless has been an elusive target for the cable industry for decades. Charter inherited the Verizon MVNO deal through its purchase of Time Warner Cable in 2015.

The cable industry has fought back with public WiFi hotspots that allow, for example, Comcast's Xfinity customers to access mobile broadband without being physically at home. The company has said it will activate a wireless service next year.

The agreement between Comcast and Charter helped dampen analyst expectations that either company was imminently planning a major leap into wireless.

Charter Communications is not interested in a merger with Sprint Corp., a person familiar with the matter tells Bloomberg.

Sprint this year had also reportedly been courting T-Mobile about an acquisition, and Son could try to pursue both deals simultaneously, according to the Journal. SoftBank now has majority ownership of Sprint. Analysts have blamed a weak network and the company's seeming inability to upgrade it. The news, though, had shares of Sprint rising 6 percent after the closing bell.
