Re: Tough Competition
@afwriter:

I am equally curious to see how these cable companies are going to be reshaped in future. The challenge certainly is no simple but ofcourse not impossible too. It all depends on how well they adapt new and  transform the model.

A great approach would be for cable companies to parter with top telcos to acquire deal with large companies instead of trying to start at the bottom to reach these new customers.

This will be a large effort to gain access to the enterprise market.

This will take a great deal of effort - changing culture, myths and beliefs about cable companies, change perception of cable companies, finding ways to break into the market, find cost-effective solutions for large companies and hiring the right employees and the right leadership so cable companies can woo the enterprise market.

Cable in the Enterprise Market?
Coverage and service varies by company and varies by state and city. It will be interesting to see how cable companies leverage this issue to garner new large companies for business.

It will take time for the large companies to trust cable companies and see them as a vital provider versus currently technology/consulting companies such as IBM or Accenture.

Cable in Enterprise
"How are these various strategies working out so far? What kinds of hurdles are cable operators encountering? What other steps must they take? Where do they need to focus their efforts right now? And what are their general prospects for success?"

The telco companies should ask these questions when producting products and services for consumers. It would be great if they asked for feedback and conducted surveys to find out the problems residential customers are experiencing, and other questions so that telco companies provide the same level of service to residential customers as they do to business customers.

Then it would be easier for telco companies to woo consumer as well as the enterprise market.

Re: Cable vs Telcos
@DHagar:

You are right. Cable companies had their share of success in the past and now surely are considered dated. As you mentioned, they have to start adapting SDN - NFV to be in sync and that may not be very easy, but definitely not impossible. But as is canble companies are not ready to compete with Telcos yet.

Tough Competition
I think cable cos will be able to increase their market share but it won't be easy. The real trick for them to steal that business away from telcos is to offer something that they don't. I'm interested to see how they continue to develop in the next couple years and what they can offer to compete with telcos.

Re: Cable vs Telcos
@clrmoney, cable's true test will come with their adapatability to the business enterprise market.

I believe that the platforms that would incorporate SDN-NFV could be a good channel, but that would be a stretch for the cable companies.  I am betting the telcos will win.

Cable vs Telcos
I know that cable has been here for a long time and provided customer services some good and bad like high prices and rip off deals. But the digital world there are a lot of niche companies that are coming out with digital things that will probably be a hit or miss. I think that cable has reach beyond its expiration date and we should find other ways to view as many channels as we like.
