Re: Skeptical
@ms.akkineni, very true.  They represent a new and growing market, but they also represent a shifting market in that they are still making choices.

That is why Comcast is smart to create a platform that will enable them to provide bridges and networks to respond to evolving technology and user preferences.

Re: Skeptical
@DHagar:

Well Said. It becomes very confusing at times when I read such evolving trends, not sure whether to consider this constructive thinking about the extent of advancement in technology or the extent of disruption that youngsters are prone to get into. I want to say that if utilized wisely with balance it is going to be a winner, but i can not as youngsters are youngsters and they just like learning hard ways.

Great article, Comcast finally realized that to remain competitive and a telecommunications leader they must expand into other areas such as Open Source and digital transformations.

Now if they could use money to provide customer service training to their employees they would really be a great company.

Re: Skeptical
@DHagar, yes. Comcast will be ready for the IP transition via Viper. That article is a few years old, so I'm sure they have even more things running on it now.

Re: Skeptical
@afwriter, I am tracking the same trends.  I think the younger set is going to go for video, 4G and even the 5G (which I understand will be even more disruptive.

Re: Skeptical
@Mike, great article!  So it appears that their Viper platform provides the capability of migration of their existing broadband onto the new platform to host the integration of old and new.  That would provide them the capability to remain a strong player across the evolving technologies, it would seem.  If so, that does appear to be a transformation that can support video, etc.

Re: Skeptical
@michelle, I haven't been following the earnings reports of late, but over the last few years the basic video subs were plummeting off a cliff for MVNOs. In addition to broadband, I think business services will also post increased revenues going forward.

Re: Skeptical
Broadband service is where it's at! That's no surprise. The money is somewhat shifting away from traditional cable offerings onto broadband service plans and distributed subscriptions. Is cable making up the difference simply by selling more broadband-only packages? Does the shift impact core business at all?
