2017 Broadband Predictions from Mimosa

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.
