Re: Cable One
@mhhf1ve, I didn't realize Cable One was ranked 9th in the country. There are steadily moving up the ladder. However, they still have a long way to go to reach the top 5 telcos. It is great that their ARPU hit a record. Interesting to see what new developments the company produces in the next 3-5 years.

Parternship
Two are always better than one. It is great to see companies develop partnerships. Microsoft partnership with SK Telecom will provide some great opportunities for commercial and residential customers. It is a win-win for both companies.

Re: Cable One
I live in the upper midwest and I have never heard of them. Do you know if they bring anything to the table that other providers don't?

Re: Cable One
Interesting how Cable One is now at a "record residential average revenue per unit (ARPU) of $70.80," while I'm personally at my home still on an intro rate from Comcast of $20 a month. Looks like mine and others can be expecting an increase in average monthly costs down the road!

Cable One
For those who haven't heard of Cable One:"Cable ONE is available to an estimated 3.4 million people, making it the 9th largest residential cable provider in the U.S. by coverage area." I think Cable One serves about 20 states in the US.... but it's probably most known in Idaho.

Msft and SK telecom
> "SK Telecom and Microsoft [in] cooperation" in technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence and cloud to promote Internet of Things (IoT) businesses.." Is this the first telecom Microsoft is partnering with for this set of technologies? I assume MSFT is also working on similar things with plenty of other telcos?

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.
