Re: Explosion
@batye:

What do you mean by liberal? Does that mean companies will be able to just get by without having to deal with consequence for their wrong doings?

Re: Explosion
I am sure there would be some consequences to deal with even for Canadian companies. There could be difference in terms of what extent and what exactly. But certainly companies won't be able to just get away with nothing.

Re: Explosion
I guess things aren't dramatically different in Canada as per my understanding. I believe it is close to North America in most stuff.

Re: Explosion
That's a good point and a whole different scenario. We get offered, signed and get started as per agreed up on. Time goes on happily till you open your account billing that may be not what you were supposed to get charged. I didn't experience myself but heard from others.

Re: Brief Thoughts....
I hear what you are saying. But certain trivial things like security related for example are worthy enough to be forced as required. That may turn out to be less hassle some later in the game for both companies and consumers.

Re: Explosion
Yeah, these offer wars are problematic at times because you don't know which ones are legitimate. We hear so much i offerings during promotional calls but reality may be different.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
