That’s not very good. So, what gives? Continue Reading
In the middle of CommunicAsia, Asia’s preeminent annual international telecom and broadband event held in Singapore, news broke out that Singtel is yet again dropping its broadband package price for its subscribers. That sent shock waves to all broadband service providers in Singapore, who are locked in a fierce price war of late. Continue Reading
Heading back from this year’s Incognito Community Exchange (ICE), feeling somewhat exhausted (even though I’m not even the main guy putting the event together), I couldn’t help but reflect on why we put together such an event in the first place, year after year. Continue Reading

Yes, that word was ringing through my mind as I left New Orleans, the city where the 2015 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo drew to its conclusion on Friday, October 16th.

And yes, they did indeed, with educational and informational workshops about the trials now and the plans for the coming year when real world deployments start. It’s about bandwidth; DOCSIS 3.1 will unleash gigabit speeds of bandwidth that both you and I will get to enjoy. Continue Reading

The warmth of the people and the optimistic attitude is contagious, and the intimate ‘up close and personal’ style has always been the hallmark of the conference. For that, one has to applaud the fine work that CCTA puts into the event, drawing together operators, vendors, programmers, solution providers, marketers, and technologists alike — and this year, over 270 attendees and 80-some exhibitors.
