Re: Cable One
Regional cable operators are easy to overlook -- esp if you don't live in their regions! I assume you don't live near Idaho, so you've probably never seen an ad or any services offered to you....

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?
