I had a good week down in Orlando, FL at the CTIA show with many meetings. Some highlights included much debate about the AT&T acquisition on T-Mobile and the $3B break up fee associated with it. Then there were new tablets and a focus on backhaul, small cells, LBC and some talk of NFC as well as solutions to tie voice and data connections more tightly together over wireless networks. You’ll be hearing more from me on what I learned very soon. And ironically for a wireless show, the broadband connection in the convention center was pitiful and the hotel and airport weren’t much better. The connection on the airplane wasn’t terrible for satellite – it’s probable that there were a lot of leisure travelers on the flight down here. Hopefully the same is true for the flight back.
