Re: old ATT
You made a very good point. That perception among customers plays a role. But the stats you mentioned in your comment are really impressive. I wasn't aware myself. But it clearly takes some effort from their marketing to run good promotional campaigns / outreaches so customers see this side of potential from AT&T.

Re: old ATT
Totally agree with you. There is so much overlap right now and that leaves a very small window open for anyone to reap the profits.

Re: old ATT
I have been watching AT&T since the colloboration with Lucent technologies. Several transformations occurred since then. But as you mentioned for a while AT&T is known to be a phone company. But makes sense to see it getting into internet arena having quiet some background in networking. Rest waht willhappen, how it would do in that area we will get to watch.

Re: old ATT
I still think of AT&T as a phone company and don't know how I feel about it being an Internet provider. With so many lost subs for its DirectTV, I wonder how much longer AT&T will be offering that service.

Re: old ATT
I wonder if some of our subconscious feelings affect AT&T in the sense that potential customers and the public still think of them as the "phone" company and not really a high speed broadband provider. Even as noted "AT&T ended 2018 with 13.72 million IP broadband subs, and just 680,000 DSL subs," the typical customer might not really think of them as a "real" super speed internet company. electing to go the Comcast way instead, or with other traditional cable providers over choosing AT&T?

old ATT
Even the old ATT was trying to get into providing entertainment and information services. The new ATT seems to be frustrated as well when it comes to those two avenues, but at least it has some real outlets in those areas, though not as successful as they want. And now so many broadband providers and content providers are trying to step on each others' turfs.

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.
