Light Reading IPTV Top Ten Report

Light Reading has published a report on the Top Ten IPTV Carriers at the following link. Light Reading's Top Ten include:

10. FastWeb
9. TeliaSonera
8. Belgacom
7. China Telecom
6. Chunghwa Telecom
5. Telefónica
4. Neuf Cegetel
2. France Telecom
1. Iliad (Free)

This list is consistent with our own rankings. Its criteria are a bit more strict than ours, which generates certain differences. We include Verizon even though it uses RF overlay to deliver broadcast content. Light Reading correctly points out that the smaller carriers such as TeliaSonera and Belgacom will not be able to maintain their position on this list for long.

We have published our own list in our report Opportunities in TelcoTV that goes into more detail about service provider and vendor rankings.
