It’s nice to see good news such as “AT&T’s profits soar on wireless, U-verse revenues” about a member, especially when it involves your technology and increases other members’ shipments.
“But according to Ralph de la Vega, AT&T’s president and CEO of Mobility and Consumer Markets, it wasn’t just the iPhone that helped drive AT&T’s success this quarter. De la Vega said that the carrier’s shrinking churn rate was due in part to the company’s IP-based U-verse service and subsequent triple- and quad-plays offerings, which seem to have been successful in driving revenue per household and customer retention.” Good news and something that shouldn’t go away when the iPhone exclusivity ends.
And, speaking of quad play …. If you weren’t aware, I’m a fan of TelcoTV. I live in PA so naturally I called Verizon to see if FIOS was available yet (I know they use MOCA and not HomePNA but nobody’s perfect). A very pleasant and helpful Verizon customer service representative searched for, but unfortunately couldn’t find, my house -- even though they have been providing my wireless service for years. Oh well, maybe someday. (While driving the other day I saw a billboard for CenturyLink near my house - and they use HomePNA for their TV service).
