Shaping the Future of Broadband Technologies

Spend enough time within the world of broadband technologies and you’re afforded some excellent opportunities to help shape the future of our industry.

Yesterday, Public Knowledge released a CTC report examining how cable compares with other broadband technologies. The report was also filed with the FCC in the Comcast-Time Warner merger docket. Our technical analysis shows that DSL, mobile broadband, and other less robust broadband mediums cannot technically keep up with or compete with cable networks in terms of performance and upgrade paths.

 Additionally yesterday, the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute released CTC’s report showing a path forward to achieve wireless net neutrality within the framework of LTE (4G) technology. That report was filed with the FCC in the net neutrality docket.

 These reports feature rigorous, focused analysis – the same focus and attention to detail that we bring to each and every project we work on, no matter what size the project or the client. I’m proud to be part of this amazing team of engineers and analysts as they bring their deep understanding of the broadband market and broadband technologies to our nation’s decision makers.
