In the beginning I didn't understand why people what to do things faster but now I am one of them. I want more speed and I don't want to wait. Anytime my internet seems slow I call my ISP provider and report the issue. The more consumers are given the more they will want.

Re: Customer retention rates...
It only seems natural that testing will become an important factor as noted that systems need to have "no tolerance for unreliability" and getting to 100% reliability will be important in critical uses of IoT, manufacturing process and automated processes. I can only wish for the day my home internet become completely error free, noting that it's been down or slow several times a week lately.

Obvious vs complex vs chaotic work...
Work can be categorized as obvious, complex or chaotic.. where obvious work has known knowns and may be automated someday... it'll be interesting if robots can do chaotic work soon.

Re: Customer retention rates...
It's amazing actually that a complex smartphone costs less than some other items that seem far less complicated. A fashionable leather bag with a few zippers and pockets can't be manufactured autonomously, but the processes for making chips and smartphones are probably similarly labor intensive?

> "Testing is often seen as optional or as a luxury."
Wow. Hopefully that attitude changes quickly as more and more steps of deployment can be automated.

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.
