Consumers are cutting the cord, making it more important than ever to have a wireless strategy which is solid. As it continues, the cable companies are at the biggest disadvantage.
Over the past years it seems the FCC went out of its way to penaliize the cable companies while giving the phone companies a free ride — you know — killing the CLECs, encouraging mergers, etc.
I kind of understood the thinking of the FCC (not the killing the CELCs part) as the triple-play was becoming popular and cable companies were far ahead of the telcos.
Now however the phone companies have the advanatage — as consumers move to wireless networks and give up landlines.
One wonders if the FCC will change its stance now that the balance of power is shifting rapidly towards the telcos. We will see what happens next year when Kevin Martin moves on.
