The Cable Triumverate

October 4, 2015

At a master agency, Microcorp One-on-One, the Cable 3 Sisters gave a presentation together. They have been sharing booth space for a couple of years - and presenting together for a while. This was my first view of it.

The push is on to fiber.

Utility VoIP

October 1, 2015

Ran across a website that called their Hosted VoIP solution Utility VoIP. I thought that was appropriate because in so many cases it is sold as dial-tone replacement. Nothing more.

We are almost 12 years in and No HD Voice, No Fax over IP.

Value-Driven Leadership

October 1, 2015

Is there a connection between culture, values and profit? In building a company that is built to last. I would concur with Jim Collins' research that there is a connection.

INC magazine through the Small Giants Community has started a 3-year research project with the Center for Values-Driven Leadership at Benedictine University to examine the connection between culture, values and profit.

A Lesson from Airlines

September 28, 2015

Have you noticed that the airlines are a lot like the telecom industry? Both used to be regulated; now neither are. Both had a bubble resulting in bankruptcies. Consolidation happened in both industries - with a disaster for consumers.

Argument For Internet Regulation

September 24, 2015

This is the best argument I have seen for Internet regulation. It was also an insightful and humorous piece of writing about adtech, privacy, surveillance and other stuff. Yes, it is longer than most people's attention span, but worth the read.

"There's a myth in Silicon Valley that any attempt to regulate the Internet will destroy it, or that only software developers can understand the industry. When I flew over to give this talk, I wasn't worried about my plane falling out of the sky.

The Broadband Competition Problem

September 23, 2015

Big discussion over at AVC on Fred Wilson's blog post about the lack of broadband competition. After the broadband report came out, this apparently was a shock to some:

"Today, nearly 40 percent of American households either do not have the option of purchasing a wired 10 Mbps connection or they must buy it from a single provider. Three out of four Americans do not have a choice of providers for broadband at 25 Mbps, the speed increasingly recognized as a baseline for broadband access."

The discussion revolves around - surprise - arbitrage! There would be investment IF there was enough money in last mile residential; if regulation was lighter; if, if, if.

Is There Any Telecom Disruption?

September 22, 2015

Today, Fone.do was featured on ProductHunt. In the discussion, Aircall.io was mentioned.

Despite consolidation and analyst predictions of 20+% CAGR, we haven't really seen any real disruption in the space.

Low price by itself is not disruption.

The Cable Dominance Push

September 19, 2015

From USA Today, "Altice Group, a European telecom company controlled by French cable entrepreneur Patrick Drahi, has agreed to buy U.S. cable operator Cablevision (CVC) in a deal valued at $17.7 billion."

Altice already is buying smaller cableco Suddenlink for $9B. That makes for a big stake in the US market.
