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. I wonder...

Schizoid Tails of the ILEC

Sitting in the belly of the beast today as I listen to AT&T talk about DSL, U-Verse, ASE (switched Ethernet), LTE and other products. It's interesting to hear AT&T talk about the $21 Billion that they spent on the...

More Big M&A Deals Announced

TWC is being bought by Comcast - with Charter taking some pieces of that $45 Billion deal. This would make Comcast - already the biggest ISP and TV provider - even bigger and more powerful. While TWC is not...

M&A Merger Rumors Abound

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...

True Ups Kill the Partner

I just received news that tw telecom will be truing up my account. It will be a nice 4 figure pinch - going back to March 2013. I understand that the account had a billing adjustment, but a true...

AT&T: Transform from Agent to Provider

AT&T has a new channel program that isn't really a channel program so much that it is a wholesale program. (I wrote about it when I first heard about it back in September.) The Emerging Markets Program requires that...

AT&T To Take on OTT

AT&T and Beats Music rolled out a music service during the Super Bowl. AT&T is taking on Pandora, Spotify and Apple iTunes. Bloomberg reports that "Music-streaming services need 5 million to 10 million paying customers to be profitable after...

AT&T Buying Customers from T-Mobile

AT&T is offering cash and credit for customers to leave T-Mobile. Sprint, too. Literally buying customers now. Is the cell world that flat? Wall Street acts like this is the first time AT&T has done this. For years, AT&T...

Frontier Buying SNET

The big news is that AT&T is selling off its old SNET division to Frontier. I feel sorry for my friends and family in Connecticut as they went from a local RBOC (SNET) to an ambivalent giant to a...

No More TDM

In an effort to speed up the adoption of IP-based voice services (like SIP trunks and VoIP), AT&T has stopped compensating Agents for TDM. No more POTS lines or PRI's, folks. It's funny that this happens now because I...

The FCC is Busy (Part 2)

Top stories at the FCC, where there seems to be a lot of activity lately. The FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau clarified the rules for data collection for Special Access circuits. WC Docket No. 05-25 Report and Order is out....

AT&T's New Partner Program

Note that this is information I have heard from three different agents about AT&T's new partner program. One even attributed it to ACC Business. I have not confirmed it - nor have I seen the agreement. There are many...

I Wonder Sometimes

Maybe my head is in the clouds here at Cloud Partner Conference, but I have been scratching my head about a few things this morning. I wonder why AT&T Wholesale has a meeting room at an Agent show. I...

Fastest Way to Raise Revenue

If you want to raise revenue, what's the fastest way? Not cold calling for new customers. Upselling and cross-selling your current base will move the needle a little. But if you have a lot of subscribers the fastest way to...

AT&T Taking a Leap

Bloomberg reported over the weekend that AT&T was going to buy Leap Wireless - for the spectrum of course - for about $1.2B. "San Diego-based Leap also has $2.8 billion in net debt." Which will be added to AT&T's already...

Why is Telecom So Old?

Saw this picture on twitter. It made me think about the lack of innovation from the telcos.For example. cellular and DSL technologies were discovered by Bell Labs in the 1960s, but didn't to market until decades later. And it...

Parallels, Cisco, Google and Panda

If every day feels like you are on a hamster wheel, maybe you are examining the wrong metric. An interesting announcement today two weeks before thier customer summit, Cisco bought a stake in Parallels and gets a Board seat.Parallels is...

RBOCs Declare War on CLECs

This is a letter from telecom lawyer Kris Twomey to the members of FISPA, an association for ISP's and CLEC's. I know that Politics and Regulatory talk puts you to sleep or bores you or you don't have time for...

The $14 Billion Dollar Announcement

While I don't agree with everything that Bruce writes here about AT&T's $14 Billion network spend in the next 3 years, there were a few take aways.The big one is that the ILEC's have been getting rate hikes for years...

AT&T's Big Investment

AT&T announced that it would spend $14 Billion dollars on wireless and wireline networks over the next three years. What a bunch of hoopla over not much. AT&T already spends between $7B and $9B annually on its wireless network. The...

Moves by AT&T

"An industry executive argues that service providers face becoming "irrelevant" to consumers, though it might be unusual to hear it said in public," writes Gary Kim. It is the same argument - dumb pipe versus value added reseller.While VZ and...

Some Moves That May Seem Like News

Who is going 100G? Both XO and Spread Networks announced its deployment of 100G technology. The surprise? Bright House Networks announced that it will extend its relationship with Fujitsu and utilize that vendor for 100G in its metro network. Comcast...

The CLEC Space is Changing

The FCC has removed its rules against CLEC-Cable mergers. Right now the M&A department at Comcast, flush with cash, is picking out its next target. "Hey, Guys! Call me if you need help with valuations or choices!"Sprint and VZ and...

Brad Thor's Black List

I like spy novels. Since James Bond, I have been reading spy novels from Ludlum, Lustbader and Jack Higgins. The new breed of authors in this gnre are very good - Barry Eisler, Vince Flynn, Daniel Silva, Brian Haig, Randy...

What Will Happen to the Gear Vendors?

There used to be a class 4 switch called Coppercom. It was a decent switch and reasonably priced. The company couldn't make a go of it because the ISP and CLEC market was shrinking at the time. Yesterday there was...
