Re: ADTRAN's 10G fiber access portfolio
I remember using two phone lines for dial-up for that reason. At least one company sold load balancers to divide data loads among two phone lines. (Usually, balancing would be done on more expensive, higher-speed lines, not on dial-up!)

Re: Lumos Leader
This seems to be an ongoing struggle for a lot of us; I know I am in the same boat. It is difficult for other companies to move into these territories and make a profit. Hopefully, there will be a solution someday soon that creates competition.

Re: Lumos Leader
@freehe I cerrtainly want choices and mutliple options. Unfortunately, only two companies service my area, which creates a duopoly and no competitive pressure to drive down prices or drive up service.

Re: ADTRAN's 10G fiber access portfolio
@DopnBrown Of course, they have to meet the needs of the consumer. And consumers today are consuming a lot more bandwidth than a decade ago. I still remember using the internet primarily for emails, and receiving a single high resolution photo took 20 minutes!

Lumos
Lumos made a good business decision by partnering with ADTRAN. More companies need to develop partnerships to further their intiatives and make it easier to implement new intiatives. This is a win-win for both companies.

Re: ADTRAN's 10G fiber access portfolio
It would seem it's finally time to roll out more symmetrical internet services. Which more folks doing uploading to YouTube and other streaming services, not to mention gaming it's only logical that providers will start seriously thining about moving forward with higher upload speeds for consumers and business users.

ADTRAN's 10G fiber access portfolio
Holy mackerel, I wish my local, rural IP would roll out ADTRAN's 10G package. That would be awesome.  Lumos's customers are lucky.

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.
