Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
Choosing your own, is most likely the way things will progress as competition for customers increases and content available increases wildly, making a more customer driven market for the first time in decades. Even competion from other countries and their providers like China Telecom is making big changes in the industry.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
It's interesting how cable is able to get these deals when traditionally, hotels preferred ISPs that weren't regional so they had consistent providers across the country.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
I know, Cable no longer is an excitement for any. I think very few these days have cable connections these days. I was in a family vacation at a resort this past weekend and we were just playing our own content to the TV.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
The stuff on cable is mostly pretty horrid, anyway. It is no attraction to me to see that cable TV is available for free. I can read my journal articles, or look at a video from UCTV on my iPad, instead.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
Agree with you. I believe 'Bring your content' will be the way forward. It is alreday in effect to some level. When you have unlimited data, with mobile hotspot it is a done deal.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
That's a good idea. Bring your own content seems like a good idea. Cable TV access isn't quite the selling point is used to be for an overnight stay.

Choice Hotels and Cable
I wonder if Choice Hotel franchisees will eventually be able to trim cable TV costs if they enable guests to view streaming TV on the guests' own devices with Choice's new higher speed broadband.

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.
