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.

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.
