Wow, that is sad to hear that children are sitting outside of restauarants trying to get access to broadband. However, this tool is great. Everyone deserves equal access to broadband.

Re: Proprietary data made public... someday
Wow, I didn't know about that company and it's earlier troubles. I think pricing for 5G in rual markets will be key to gaining a customer base that will use it. There are plenty of pricy satillite broadband companies - a better option would be great.

Re: Proprietary data made public... someday
Hopefully, everyone has learned from the bankruptcy of Iridium.... it would be sad to see billions wasted on a network no one (besides some shipping companies and outdoorsman) really wants.

Re: Proprietary data made public... someday
That's exciting for sure. I hope the pricing isn't so high that those users can't afford to subscribe.

Re: Proprietary data made public... someday
I can't wait for various LEO satellite broadband services to come online in the near future... It'll hopefully be a revolution in broadband with availability to places that never had a chance to get fiber or high speed wireless.

That's quite a vision! Let's hope it's possible sooner rather than later. It would be nice to see more comprehensive coverage.

Re: Proprietary data made public... someday
@Batye, I don't mean any offense by this, but that is awful. I couldn't imagine speeds that slow in my house. Do you at least pay a lower rate for your speeds? Hopefully, someone will come around to give you high-speed options sooner than later.

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.
