Re: Network updates
@Ariella: Sometimes it's not a matter of cost or technical feasibility. In the case of HOAs and condo associations, the board may have a contract with a particular provider. In the case of some unscrupulous board members, there may be political, familial, or other not-on-the-up-and-up reasons for this.

Re: Network updates
Ariella -- It's because of those differences that is impossible to generalize. You will always find enough variety to make you see that there is always something that is better and something that is worse than X in  each place you visit.

And always comparing every place just with X is not a good thing to do either. It's much better to make a list of what you find good and bad from each place.

And of course, this perception is always going to be influenced by your own individual thinking, personality, preferences, and so many other things that make up an individual.

Re: Network updates
Ariella: The thing is that I don't believe in generalizations. I also travel a lot all the time around Europe (not holidays, I mean staying in the place for a longer periods) and I can tell his generalization doesn't apply to many places in Europe. So that's why I believe he should not generalize to "around the world."

As noted the speed issues are quickly being solved (except perhaps in rural areas) so the next leap forward for providers will be in the area of "delivering a high-quality broadband experience," solving latency issues and customer experience overall as video delivery becomes a primary product in years to come.

I will also continue to remain hopeful as we all are witness to the evolution at hand.    There is no real choice-is there?

... as they are those who make the real power of broadband available. There are service providers offering a service that seems to be taken back from at least a decade ago. That's not being focused on services or in the customer for that matter.

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.
