Sprint Corp. is still discussing a mobile partnership and potential equity investment with Comcast Corp. and Charter Communications Inc., even as its exclusive negotiating period has ended, according to people familiar with the matter.

The two-month window ended Thursday, opening the door for Sprint to resume discussions with T-Mobile US Inc. or other partners, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. The cable companies are interested in a reselling deal that would let them offer Sprint’s wireless service under their own brands. Sprint is expected to offer more favorable terms than the cable companies’ agreement with Verizon Communications Inc., said two of the people.
