Re: Comcast xFi
Looks like there is a lot of complaining going around on Comcast.

Haven't heard much yet about Optimum though. One place i constantly hear is in CBS news advertisement. I wonder why they shut services in yor area.

Comcast continues to provide that they are a tech leader. They continue to innovate and develop new products and services. They continue to assess and work to meet their customers current and future needs.

Telco focused more of their efforts on businesses. It is great that the focus has returned to consumers which is the core of how the telcos were able to grow to offer services to businesses.

Re: Comcast xFi
@ms akkineni I had relatives that complained about Comcast constantly in Manhattan. I use Optimum. I find it expensive. At the moment, they shut my service and I'm using a tiny antenna to get seven lousy channels.

Re: Comcast xFi
It is often true that no competition will lead the business to do sloppy customer service, but a wise manager or owner will take steps to alleviate any laziness on the part of employees if not to keep profit high but to keep the customer's feelings about the brand to stay high and attract even more customers and sell more services.

Re: Comcast xFi
If it's that bad in NYC, imagine how bad it is in more rural areas where competition is little to none. I hate going back to my hometown because it is smaller and there is no competition there so every business has terrible customer service because, as I have said on many occasions, "The workers at McDonald's don't care because they know you can't go to another McDonald's."

Re: Google
@JohnDrake the ones that connect to your phone do exist, I'm not sure how much they cost though. It's funny, I bought my first battery operated diagnostic tool over a decade ago and it cost me $120 and I thought it was a steal (some shops still charge $100+ dollars just to diagnose.) That one died recently and I bought a new one that was car powered, so no batteries, for $20.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
