History is made to be understood and learnt from--We must never shy away from it as we look to a vibrant and exciting future.

Re: Plus and Minus
As the New year has begun in earnest, here is some perspective for all to bear in mind on how far we've come...and the best is yet to come :) :) 
#################################################

We forget how fast the world is changing today.

As we ring in the New Year, let's take a brief look back 100 years ago to 1919, as a means to truly appreciate the extraordinary world we live in today.

First, the bad news:
  • World War I ended in 1919 with a total casualty count of 37 million.
  • The Spanish Flu finally ended as well, with a sum total of 500 million people infected (33% of Earth's population!) and 50 million estimated deaths.

Proportional to the Earth's population today, this would be the equivalent of a death-toll ranging between 200 - 350 million people. Absolutely devastating, and a reminder of how lucky we truly are today in the twenty-first century. 

On the positive side, while progress was glacial in speed, here's everything I could find that would count as "Innovation in 1919":
  • Women's rights! The U.S. Congress approves the 19th Amendment.
  • The first passenger air service was offered between Paris and London.
  • UPS was founded as a company.
  • The U.S. Army completed its "first transcontinental motor Convoy expedition driving across the United States." It took them 60 days!
  • The NC-4 Aircraft completed the 1st multi-stop flight across the Atlantic (19 days).
  • Raymond Orteig offered $25,000 for the first nonstop flight between New York and Paris.

federal fund
Isn't there a US federal fund that lends money to cities and states for this kind of technical, infrastructure improvement? Maybe not specifically for fiber, but for all categories of infrastructure improvement....

Re: Fiber
Yep, statistics can be so manipulated to pretty much prove any point the compiler wants to tackle. Wasn't it Benjamin Disraeli who said: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

Re: Headquarters
I suspect part of the option to choose multlple "headquarters" is the economy of scale provide when hosting cities provide lots of tax inventives and other givaways to entice the companies to move. Whether the bonuses given away will bring a return to the city in jobs and economic growth is not always a sure thing.

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.
