The Rather Silly But Sirius Sales Process

May 5, 2014

Pandora, SiriusXM, Rdio, Spotify, IHeartRadio, Deezer, Xbox Music, Google Play All Access, iTunes Match and so many more apps competing for the same audience. Even AT&T is in the game with Beats Music for $10 per month. It seems that $9.99 per month - or an annual rate under $39.99 - is the ideal price point. You can get more but it has to be a family plan or multi-device plan.

M&A Merger Rumors Abound

May 1, 2014

Sprint is getting set to offer a bid to buy T-Mobile, which is funny since the FCC already told Softbank Sprint that they would say no. But on the heals of the Comcast-TWC deal (that now involves Charter getting some TWC leftovers), Sprint thinks that it will be okay.

Then there is the AT&T buying DirecTV rumor. Never hear the rumor about DISH being bought, huh?

What's Missing in UC?

May 1, 2014

Why do people think UC is plug and play! Was Microsoft ever plug and play?

The biggest hurdle to Hosted UC installs is a competent technician on-site. Heck, even for telecom installs, a competent tech would be helpful to extend the demarc, run some cat5e or fiber runs, deploy the CPE, turn up the router (and plug it in), check for UPS, etc.

The One Pain in the Hosted VoIP Business

April 28, 2014

After spending much of this year with Hosted VoIP companies in the US and UK, I have to say that the one pain in the their business is scale.

Scale means a couple of things, like finding talent to hire that doesn't destroy the culture (or chase away other talent). Maintaining the corporate culture is part of scale, too. Scale also involves processes in the business.

Things That May Interest You

April 24, 2014

There are a bunch of things that I want to comment on but just don't have the time. Yet they may be of interest to you. I did get to comment on the FCC's net neutrality ruling and the Cbeyond-Birch merger.

For one thing, I hope that the CBEY-Birch deal doesn't become the Fairpoint-VZ deal.

What is Innovation?

April 22, 2014

I hear the word bantered about a lot especially by media, C-Level execs and government types. This week it was the "Innovation Economy". well, that makes sense since the USA's only lead globally has been in innovation, but the rest of the world is catching up due to this thing called the Internet (an invention of ours, btw).

New and improved isn't really innovation.

This is How You Do Social Media!

April 21, 2014

I received a surprise package at my doorstep today from Bright House. It seems that my tweeting about the Tampa Bay Lightning and recent Bright House Networks news caught the attention of the social media team @BrightHouseCares. So they sent me a package!

The note said:

Birch Buys Cbeyond

April 21, 2014

I knew Cbeyond was looking to sell (like TWCable, "Someone buy me!"). And there was the big rumor about Megapath buying them. The execs at Cbeyond were on the losing end of the Paetec-Windstream deal. And while Cbeyond has been talking a good game about Cbeyond 2.0, it is extremely tough to make this transition and sell enough cloud to make up for T1 sales.

The Wearable Tech Futures

April 21, 2014

Amid all the noise about the growing Internet of Things market comes the announcement that Nike is disbanding its FuelBand team.

Nike and Adidas were at the Wearable Tech Expo / FAST in December. To see this announcement, speculation would be that wearable tech is not promising. I don't think that is it.
