Re: growth
@DonBrowne Yes, lower pricing not likely to be on the horizon. The direction in which the companies appear to go is to claim greater value in offering more not in reducing costs.

Re: growth
It doesn't seem surprising to me that we have as noted "no signs of wireless substitution (either fixed or mobile)," in the market yet. T-Mobile though has announced some plans to make 5G a big time replacement and competitor for wired internet in the next few years and what they hint is at a much lower price for consumers. I won't hold my breath for lower pricing but it will be interesting to see if they can becomne a leader in the market.

Re: growth
@Afwriter well a lot can change over adecade. In general, though, I believe you can't sustain huge percentages for growth for more than a few years.

Re: growth
It will be interesting to have 20/20 hindsight on this. I have a feeling that 10 years from now we will look back and see steady growth; though you never know with the ever-changing landscape of high-speed internet.

<4.9% year-on-year.> Just under a 5% YOY growth is quite respectable -- even if it isn't dramatically spectacular. Numbers like this are probably more sustainable than double digit growth.

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.
