Comcast Corp. is moving closer to introducing a wireless service that would compete with major U.S. carriers.

The country’s largest cable company has told Verizon Communications Inc. that it plans to resell Verizon’s wireless service as part of a 2012 airwaves deal, according to two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because the information isn’t public. Under that agreement, a consortium of cable companies led by Comcast sold nationwide spectrum licenses to Verizon for $3.6 billion and secured the rights to resell its wireless services.
