Are You Getting Rejected By Cable?

June 30, 2014

I hear a lot of stories about cable: (1) About a one-third order drop out rate due to no facilities: (2) Intensive paperwork for orders and quotes; and (3) clean orders are rare, which causes rejections that result in delays and extra time. Oh, and even worse:

A change in Comcast's process is making clean paperwork even more important. Effective immediately, Comcast's direct team may now take over any order that is rejected for more than four business days; causing partners to lose the order.

What I Read Over the Weekend

This could have been a good case study article if it had been more specific. Instead it is full of vague assumptions. Not helpful at all.

AT&T is adding cities in NC to its U-Verse with GigaPower.

The Load on Cable

June 12, 2014

Yesterday, I wrote about how if your Netflix is buffering on your broadband connection, then how can you expect VoIP to work. I wanted to add to that post because I don't think that telecom salespeople (or channel partners) are doing a good job explaining two things to prospects: (1) the difference between dedicated Internet access and broadband; and (2) how vital Internet is to a business today.

Your business probably relies on some research online, right? We don't go to a library or have too many reference books or get the daily newspaper or monthly trade journal, so the news and info come from the web.

Netflix is Insight into VoIP Quality

June 11, 2014

Netflix has an ISP rating to let consumers know how ISPs are doing delivering Netflix streaming video. Netflix is involved in a fight for the last mile with the largest ISPs in the US, especially Comcast and Verizon FiOS.

When your Netflix video buffers and buffers, some people call their ISP who has them do a speed test. Big deal.

The Net Neutrality Debacle

May 7, 2014

Many people have asked me about this. I don't have a rant about the FCC's Net Neutrality decision. We got screwed but I can't get worked up about it because that is what I expect to happen in DC these days.

No matter what ruling - McCutcheon v.

Thoughts on the Industry Right Now

April 18, 2014

All the forecasts: have any of them been accurate? Or is it just a way to sell reports? If it is, let me know and I will start writing forecast reports too.

Think about this: "for 2013, Infonetics reported that the global market for VoIP services brought in $68 billion in revenue, an eight percent gain over 2012." [source].

ISPs and Content

April 3, 2014

Your top MSO's are also your biggest ISPs. Your top MSO's are already in the content arena with the TV stations they own (mainly sports stations, but Bright House owns news stations and Comcast owns NBCU!)

Comcast is effectively in the content gatekeeper toll booth space after the Netflix paid peering deal.

I have noticed that some newspapers are trying to put up a pay wall. I have no idea how effective it has been.
