Deeper – Fiber Always Wins (Until it Doesn’t)

Mission Hills notice on Google Fiber

The following articles provide a good overview of the role fiber plays in the telecommunications ecosystem today (there’s some good details on Google Kansas City and Louisville setbacks as well):

  1. An RCR Wireless article that details Verizon’s “integrated engineering process.” It also has some details on the fiber deal with Corning.
  2. Corning (Bob Whitman) and Verizon (Glenn Wellbrock) conversations from YouTube part 1 and part 2.
  3. Altice press release announcing first homes on Long Island to receive 960 Mbps symmetrical speeds for $80/ month.
  4. Google missing their deployment goals for Kansas City, KS and Mission Hills, KS
  5. Telecompetitor AT&T Fiber penetration article in which they talk about doubling market share. The map see in the article (AT&T Fiber cities) is here.
  6. Cincinnati Bell 2Q investor penetration showing that AT&T’s goal of achieving 50% market share is entirely possible with the right content bundles (they are at 44% without the content – see page 7).
  7. Blair Levin’s and Larry Downs Harvard Business Review article on Why Google Fiber failed and how it’s really a success in disguise. Rationalization gone awry.  This might have been the case if their more recent deployments had not damaged their brand.
  8. Local (Louisville Courier-Journal) coverage of Google’s decision to pull out of the Louisville market is here.
  9. Google’s plans to expand their Webpass (60 GHz wireless hub and spoke) service for Multi-Dwelling Units Austin is outlined here.
  10. The Dallas Morning News rant on Frontier’s failures is a classic and outlined here.
