Verizon Communications announced a new offering for businesses and government users that allows them to prioritize different enterprise and Internet of Things applications. Verizon said it is the first U.S. carrier to provide this kind of quality-of-service differentiation.
Verizon has fired back at the Communications Workers of America's claims that it has turned its back on its existing copper networks in its wireline region.
Comcast Business has emerged as a potentially new threat to AT&T, Verizon and Level 3 Communications on the large business front with the introduction of a new unit that will offer business services to large Fortune 1000 business customers in the U.S. For the operator, it's a logical step.
The Go90 initiative will rise or fall on the strength of the video content it delivers, and almost nothing else matters. Verizon will surely spend a lot to market the service, but it will be useless to advertisers if no one tunes in.
Fixed-line content distributors such as Comcast and new mobile-first distributors like Verizon's go90 service all have the potential to be hugely popular OTT services, but only if they can figure out how to turn a profit on the data traffic around that service, a new report from Macquarie Research reveals.
Dish Network and Verizon Communications could strike a deal by year-end for Verizon to get access to Dish's spectrum through a leasing arrangement, according to analysts at New Street Research.
Verizon may be in the process of selling off its wireline assets in Florida to Frontier, but its move to offer new and existing FiOS customers that reside in the Tampa Bay region a 100 Mbps symmetrical speed tier shows the telco still sees value in its FTTH product line.
Comcast Business' creation of a new unit focusing on large businesses has raised speculation that it could purchase Level 3 Communications as a way to gain a national fiber footprint.
Altice is promising to take an operator notoriously locked in an intense battle with a telco service, Verizon FiOS, in the majority of its footprint, and make it more profitable than cable companies with gobs more scale. For a U.S. cable industry trying to prove to investors it has a future, that strategy could change everything if it is successful.
Comcast is open to leveraging its 11 million Wi-Fi hotspots and its MVNO relationships with wireless carriers into something more, but has no current plans to enter the wireless market with its own offering, according to CEO Brian Roberts.
