The Google Hype Machine

October 29, 2015

When Google Fiber enters a market, the Duopoly gets worried. And this is great for consumers. However, I am watching the Hype Machine from inside Tampa after Google Fiber announced that Google Fiber MAY come to Tampa (and Jacksonville, FL; and Oklahoma City).

All of Tampa is acting like they won the lottery.

Re-Thinking Noise

October 28, 2015

Robert Scoble, Rackspace futurist, has a newsletter. The latest one talks about the "Notification Summit at Betaworks' offices in New York." We live in a world of mainly 2 ecosystems - Google and Apple. (Microsoft dropped out when it lost the mobile battle.)

Betaworks VC, John Borthwick, wrote up his thoughts here on Medium.

What Does a Master Agency Look Like?

October 27, 2015

Years ago, master agencies were mostly telecom brokers. Today, with cloud services, hardware, data center, managed services, mobility and adding their own services, master agencies have morphed.

The models vary greatly. A couple, like COLOTRAQ, are specialists.

TV is Moving to the Internet

October 27, 2015

TWC is trialing Internet TV. "The beta service will let some customers get online Internet TV services, without requiring a cable connection, through a Roku 3 device," according to eweek.

Comcast Xfinity, Verizon, Boingo, DISH (Sling TV) have joined Hulu, HBO, Starz, and CBS with streaming TV services. It will all move to IP -- not necessarily over the Internet.

Where is the Channel Going?

October 26, 2015

There have been several announcements lately about channel programs from Windstream, AT&T, InterNap, Integra and others. In a few cases, the announcements are in defense of reduction in force. In the wake of layoffs, the carriers are defending their channel position. In unison they are singing, "We still like the channel!"

Telecom Tidbits for Thursday (Part 2922)

October 22, 2015

Zoom (the modem manufacturer) is just one of a number of companies and organizations opposing the Charter-TWC-BH deal.

And firms - including Apple and Yelp - are also opposing a new cyber-security bill - CISA. Got to be tough to give all that Super PAC money and not get your way.

Telecom Tidbits (Part 2921)

October 20, 2015

M&A in the data center space as Colologix acquires New Jersey based Net Access. Net Access, LLC is a "colocation and workspace recovery provider with over 200K gross square footage across three enterprise-grade facilities in Northern New Jersey." NJ is the new target for Greater NYC. Net Access has 700 customers! Now cologix will have 24 data centers in 9 markets.

3 Big Changes Today

October 19, 2015

The first big change is at Comptel. It has re-branded as INCOMPAS under the new association management team and fairly new CEO, former Sen. Chip Pickering. With twitter, Netflix and Google as sponsors of Comptel Plus and members of Incompas, it is a whole new look for the group.

While AT&T is a platinum sponsor of the show, they are absent as they have their own partner show for APEX going on in Dallas as I write this.

Why Your Marketing is Hurting Your Sales

October 18, 2015

I registered for a white paper and got dumped into the email automation bucket. And then the phone calls started.

I registered a domain and the emails poured in. I mark them as a spam and delete them.

Really Big Mergers

October 16, 2015

Dell-EMC, Charter-TWC-BHN. Anheuser-Busch InBev-SAB Miller. Big mergers usually amount to nothing good for customers. It is really about getting bigger, scaling up, too big to fail, but too big to execute.
