Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
@mpouraryan, our markets are not centrally controlled so they go through cycles.  When they become commoditized, that is not always a bad things, that just means there is a system in place that provides a major product or service - there is also the unique brand of Apple.  But the customer will evaluate utilities and commodities - which are usually looking for the lowest price (ie Walmart).  When they want brand or specific valued features they pay for those (ie Apple, Starbucks, etc.).  But the customer creates the markets by their demands and choices in services and products; but no one controls the market.

That leaves the door open to "new" transformations and products/services that give customers new choices.  When that succeeds you have a market demand.  Note:  No one controlled customers with Apple iPhones, or Facebook pages, or You Tube, or Netflix.

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
@mpouraryan, great perspective.  That is a decision we can all make - to make things better or leave them the same; ignoring problems is a decision to leaving things the same.

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
How do you then envision the increased commodization of it all as to how all seem to be increasingly "Amazon'd" :)

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
It is for sure a dream to aspire to--the question is whether the existing players will embrace a true sense of change?

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
As the focus of this community we've deliberated has been "transformation", we have to be the agents of change to leverage technology in the right way for this--when, for instance, I read about enzymes being developed that would eat up plastic (beyond the scope of our discussion in an abstract way) it seems to me that we have it within our power to make it possible.

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
@mpouraryan, it will depend on the design, the packaging, and the pricing, I believe. 

I think the answer will come in more strategic deployment, in alignment with demand, with more options that will finetune the offerings.  If the right mix is found, that should be sustainable.  Plus the size of the markets and the new options to serve them will factor in.

Great opportunities, though!

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
@mpouraryan, well said.  But the desire is there and I believe the majority understand the benefits waiting for keeping pace with the new demands in telecom.  I think that is one of the new frontiers!

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
I think there's a lot in this country that isn't sustainable. But I'm not convinced that businesses in general are concrened with long term sustainability when short term massive profits are presented.

Re: 5G Replacing Home Services
@mhhf1ve - We just bought a new house, and the entire neighborhood is wired for fiber optics. We have 1 Gig speeds, with no data caps. I have zero interest in any kind of internet that would come with a data cap. Though I would imagine it could be the telcos way of getting a lot of us back for cutting the cord. They can't do anything about our decision to get rid of cable for streaming. But they can limit the amount of internet we can use and jack up the price. Make us all wish we still had cable.
