Re: Slow Going At $50 A Month
Yup, certainly there is so much hype and carriers are already cashing in that. But the reality is yet to be known and experienced. We still aren't yet there i would believe.

Re: Slow Going At $50 A Month
This is exactly what i was eluding to. One other thing is their device trade in thing. No matter what we always end up getting very minimal to no value with this option, they just give some or the other reason. But still we end up going for that for various reasons though.

Re: Slow Going At $50 A Month
There is a lot of hype, that's for sure. It's long been suspected the whole 5G infrastructure might not be quite as great as advertised.

Re: Slow Going At $50 A Month
Heh, it's funny you say that. I just got a new phone and had to pay all the sales tax upfront even though I was using the monthly device payoff option. It was painful to pay so much tax at once.

Re: Slow Going At $50 A Month
I believe these service providers are jut getting by marketing 5G with whole new promises. Once customers are signed up, that's the success. Reality check would then become secondary.

I hear you. The taxes and fees is a total rip off. Unfortunately we have no control over that.

Re: new name
..and as "postcript" to all the deliberations I caught up on this, it seems to me Verizon seems to stumble from one thing to another....good grief!!!

new name
I wonder what Verizon's new name will be this time. I mean, the 5G problem is a symptom. If it's a serious one, then maybe they will undergo metamorphosis they way they have every so often, with different styling but the same engine under the hood. I guess the engine must be pretty reliable to have made it this long.

Re: 5G
I'm curious about the cost and speed of 5G. It's been hyped for such a long time already. I wonder if it can live up to the promises.

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.
