Re: meanwhile, in New Jersey
Agreed. Not sure what happened to the attempt made by NJ governor to see if at all Amzon will consider Newark as an option. There was a lot buzz on this when NYC-Amazon thing became a no-go.

Re: meanwhile, in New Jersey
@ms.akkineni You coud be correct. The whole thing was botched up by the political forces that be as well. In any event, it cost Long Island City and the surrounding area thousands of jobs.

Re: meanwhile, in New Jersey
May be, but not very sure if this case has even gone thus far to him. I guess the deal may have been dismissed even before. I could be wrong, but that's my understanding based on what i heard.

Re: meanwhile, in New Jersey
@ms.akkineni Or maybe Bezos was distracted by his divorce. Amazon is not very organized with Human Resources. My boyfriend actually has a job with them in the warehouse, a badge, information comes to him about his health care, and a 401k, yet he has not started yet. This has been going on since last August when he got hired at their "job event." They can't seem to figure out how to put him on the schedule! In any event, I think Long Island City lost the deal forever, never to come back. They settled on going elsewhere, down South.

Re: meanwhile, in New Jersey
I also would add - it's an initiative failed due to not having right people involved in negotiation. Sometimes things can be settled midways too. Just sticking to this or that may not work in all cases. I believe that's where things got messed up in this case.

Re: What caused micro tenching to fail?
Wow, that is very interesting. I didn't hear that. I know Gov isn't happy about Amazon's move. I personally feel the whole things may have been settled somewhere in between. But apparently that didn't happen and it is a lost opportunity for both ends.

I can get behind that approach. Seems fitting they should fix what they broke. Such poor planning...

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.
