Re: Biting off a lot
I'm glad you asked. That's what I thought too. It seems a bit ambitious to move on to a blended broadband service if your standard mobile service isn't great...

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
They do have an app now that has basically replaced the set-top boxes of yore. I cut the cord a long time ago so I don't have any personal experience with it, but as an AT&T customer, I have seen a lot of advertisements about it.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
I wuld definitely hope and expect prices to decline as we see more carriers expand into this space. Right now it's primarily driven by Verizon and AT&T and prices are high. Only competition by others would trigger any chnage of that tendency.

Re: Biting off a lot
This is true too. I personally was a customer early on and don't have lot good feedback on their mobile service. But keep hearing that they have improved lately. But they must address to make their core service better along expanding into other areas. Then it would help them to grow.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
Yes, i agree. Also i think there are lot of customers that prefre to be with one provide that has it all rather than chosing different ones. So i wuld think it is a required move.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
I believe this could be a step to be part of standard 'all-in-one bundle' group of providers. Several other carriers like Verizon, AT&T are offering their bundle that has internet, tv and mobile as a package deal. So this could be an effort to be part of the catch up bt T-Mobile.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
I saw that the equivalent of DirecTV is being offered by AT&T without the satellite dish, as a streaming service on platforms such as Roku. I wonder if that is helping. But, I thought that the attempt by AT&T to be an entertainment provider was suffering because of the decision by some other companies to create their own content and just stream rather than use satellite or cable.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
I would humbly add that it is fascinating especially as we see the evolution with the likes of Amazon and Apple as Apple gets to realize its' future that it needs to have.

Re: Combining TV and mobile?
It will be very interesting to watch the home broadband market and see if the competition helps to bring prices down for the consumer or will they still continue to increase as providers are forced to bring higher and higher speeds to their services?

Biting off a lot
Isn't T-Mobile kind of notorious for not offering a great product? It seems as if they should get their mobile service squared away before they try to add more services to a bundle.

As Vice President of Global Healthcare at AT&T, Maria Lensing oversees the telecommunications operator's technology and professional services offerings across the spectrum of medical providers, from solo practitioners and walk-in clinics to giant hospital chains, medical-device vendors and consulting firms. Lensing also sees more interest from traditional service providers -- cable and telecom operators looking to expand or build relationships with their own medical communities, perhaps as an adjunct to smart-home successes or standalone.

Lensing, who took on this role almost a year ago in May 2018, oversees both the sales and technical teams responsible for developing growth initiatives for AT&T's Global Healthcare business -- including products, services and industry-specific solutions. She also very actively promotes business minority inclusion, education and female empowerment programs and has been recognized both within and outside AT&T. Some awards she's received include "Top 40 Under 40" and "Super Woman in Business" from the Memphis Business Journal.

Join Maria Lensing, VP of Global Healthcare at AT&T, on Tuesday, April 23 at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. PT, when she's the guest on BBWN Radio, hosted by Broadband World News Editor Alison Diana. Register now!

So far, the agenda includes a discussion of technologies such as fiber and 5G; defining the needs and solutions for a widely diverse range of customers; partnering for success in a typically slow-moving, budget-constrained market; learning and dispersing best practices from other verticals and within other business groups; promoting diversity and female empowerment when so many say they're doing so but so little has changed; and what she hopes to accomplish in another year in this role.

Register and post your questions for Maria on BBWN Radio's easy-to-use chat board. We will get to as many questions as possible. Please post questions before and during the broadcast. Once you've registered, you will be led to the chat board page. Talk to you on April 23!

Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.

Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:

  • Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
  • Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
  • How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.
