Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
Joe: But of course I know that too many scientific studies have too small sample sizes. That doesn’t mean I am going to change my mind in how I think about them. The majority use a sample of around 1,000. I don’t have to tell you that in a study that aims at representing the U.S., 1,000 is nothing close to what I would consider as valid and relevant. There are now ongoing EU projects using samples of over 22,000 individuals, which is unprecedental in scientific studies, precisely because usually samples are too small. What researchers do is publishing results with the different sample sizes. Then you can clearly see how the sample size makes a difference in the results.

@Joe It's easier to hide something for a big reveal in a garage than in a driveway. That's just one of themany differences between real life and commercials. Cool move for your father!

@mhh: It's not that unrealistic. He didn't do the big red bow thing, and it wasn't a holiday, but my dad actually did surprise my mom once with a new car. It was sitting in the garage, though -- not the driveway.

@Ariella: I haven't, but I did see him speak at DEEP 2017 several months ago here in Boston.

In fact, I covered the event -- including his session -- for BBWN's sister site, Security Now, here: (link).

Re: Breaking Down Demographics
@Joe I had never thought of this. I know that it would be a major selling point for me if I was in the market for a house. I don't know if it would be the determining factor but it would be up there.

I didn't realize this. I'll keep that in mind if I happen to read one of his books. This is important data to know before reading about a study's result.

Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
@joe - I'm not a fan of "tech" gifts unless they're specifically requested. Just like how I never understand those car commercials where a person is "surprised" by an Xmas gift of a Brand. New. Car. with a big red bow on it, sitting in a snowy driveway on Dec 25th morning... Who does that???

Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
@Joe Have you ever read Dan Ariely's books? The sample sizes he works with are often really small and not all that heterogeneous eitehr as they rely on the university students they can get to volunteer.

It wasn't long ago that TV was ranked by subscribers as the most important service in the bundle provided by their communications service provider (CSP). Recent research indicates that for nearly three quarters of subscribers, broadband is now the most important service. Broadcast TV is the most important service to only 15% of North American consumers, replaced by OTT video streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. In addition, many different competitors are moving aggressively to stake a claim in consumers' homes.

In 2020, CSPs need to fight back by transforming their business models, which are becoming more reliant on a single source of revenue: fixed broadband services.

This webinar will focus on helping CSPs transform their business models by placing a firm focus on delivering a sensational subscriber experience and by offering compelling new services that generate value for subscribers. These actions will reinforce the CSP's strategic position in the home network and position themselves for growth in the next decade.

Key topics include:

  • Being the first to market with WiFi 6 technology, in response to consumer purchases of new devices over the holidays;
  • Having the insights needed to proactively resolve issues, often before your subscribers even know that there are issues;
  • Providing help desk agents with the visibility they need to resolve common subscriber issues more quickly;
  • Delivering a mobile app, in response to consumer demands for the ability to do some things themselves, rather than having to call technical support; and
  • Addressing consumer concerns around device security, privacy and control with enhanced security and parental controls.
