2017 Broadband Predictions from Mimosa
January 20, 2017
At the start of 2016, few could have predicted some of the major events that would impact the Internet connectivity industry. For example, a big surprise was AT&T’s launch of its DirecTV Now streaming service, which helped to release the binds that tie cord-keepers to the traditional linear TV service. In addition, the sudden pull-back of Google Fiber and other similar fiber deployments represented a sea change, shifting momentum to new fixed wireless technologies. Google, Facebook and the cellular 5G industry have been quick to support these innovations as the new alternatives for broad-spread, fiber-fast speeds.
