TelecomView Report on U.S. Cable Strategies

TelecomView issued a report U.S. Cable: New Strategies for a Competitive World that discusses the options that the U.S. cable companies have for responding to the increased competition from satellite TV and the new IPTV services from Verizon, AT&T, and the other U.S. Telcos. It discusses the technical options that have to increase the capacity and efficiency of their cable plants. It also discusses the options that these companies have for entering and expanding their presence in other markets that are dominated by the Telcos today.

In particular the report discusses strategies for entering the wireless industry. This is the most important and most difficult problem that the U.S. cable companies face. We believe that the cable companies have to enter the wireless business to remain competitive with AT&T and Verizon.

There is a white paper that can be ordered from our website that describes the issues covered by the report.
