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
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.

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.
