Lots of lists and best of posts out there. I am just going to run through the tidbits that I thought were interesting. Citrix bought the auto-attendant in the cloud company, Grasshopper, earlier this year for about $161.5 M...

The Consumer Benefit of Mega-Mergers

"You may recall that AT&T justified their $69 billion acquisition of DirecTV by claiming their combined market power would result in more leverage in programming negotiations and lower costs. Cost savings that pretty clearly won't be getting passed on...

Promises Unkept

As the mergers (AT&T/DirecTV and Charter-TWC-BrightHouse) are coming under review at both the Dept. of Justice and the FCC, the propaganda machines are full swing - especially by AT&T which has a formula for getting its way at the...

Analysts' Views: Part 1

Reading Jeff Kagan's take on the Big 3 Telcos - Ma Bell, Pa Bell and C-Link - makes me think that analysts only read press releases. Or just talk to the PR department. In that piece, Kagan says he...

Most companies in the telecom sector just copy what other companies do. Before 2003 though, ISPs were primarily small businesses providing dial-up and then DSL to mainly residential markets in the US. Post 2003, it became a game for...

Considering my client has been waiting 2 months to port DIDs from an AT&T PRI to Birch POTS lines, no kidding AT&T is not a Phone Company any more! Plus I have other clients that AT&T is calling to...

The RBOCs: Copper, Spectrum, Regulation and Sales

We have just 2 RBOCs - regional Bell companies left - AT&T and Verizon. You might consider CenturyLink an RBOC (because of US West), but since they don't have the same business model as the other 2, I just...

A short take on telco revenues including Earthlink, Windstream, Frontier, Verizon and AT&T. Is it the price revenue squeeze on telecom? Or is it the revenue dip associated with cloud services that have a lower ARPU than TDM ARPU?...
