Verizon has once again taken the top spot on Netflix's monthly U.S. ISP Speed Index, maintaining its lead over a group of aggressive cable operators that are gaining ground in the speed race.
Frontier Communications has put another element of its video service business management team in place by naming Stephan LeVan as its new senior VP of video content and delivery.
Satellite, presumably via the acquisition of DirecTV, will add a fourth dimension to AT&T's video delivery portfolio, John Donovan, senior executive vice president of AT&T architecture, technology and operations, said during Barclays 2014 Global Technology Conference.
AT&T has confirmed with the FCC in a letter that it will go forward with its plans to bring its fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) GigaPower 1 Gbps service to 21 communities.
The FCC is asking AT&T to provide more information about comments that CEO Randall Stephenson made saying that the company would delay new fiber network investments pending the outcome of the proposed net neutrality rules.
AT&T CEO and Chairman Randall Stephenson came out against President Barack Obama's plea to ask the FCC to reclassify broadband providers under Title II, a move that he says is driving it to pause the expansion of its ambitious fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) project into 100 U.S. cities.
AT&T may have focused a lot of its broadband attention on driving 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) services into more communities, but its move to bring its fiber-to-the-node (FTTN)-based U-verse service to Adams County, Mississippi, shows it is not slowing down its traditional U-verse strategy.
Frontier Communications is set to begin a new chapter in its home state as it has completed its $2 billion acquisition of AT&T's wireline operations in Connecticut and its related statewide fiber network and U-verse operations.
AT&T's U-verse services drove up consumer wireline revenue growth 3 percent year-over-year to $5.7 billion and helped to cushion the blow of legacy consumer and business service losses.
Frontier Communications has cleared the last major hurdle in its pending purchase of AT&T's wireline operations in Connecticut as the State of Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) has given its final approval of the acquisition.
