Are We at the End of Broadband Growth?

A recent report by the Leichtman Research Group looks at overall historic broadband penetration rates. In looking at the results I immediately asked the question if we have topped out with US broadband penetration rates. The study shows that 82% of homes now have a home broadband connection. Another 2% of homes get an internet connection from other sources like dial-up or satellite, meaning that the overall number of households with some kind of home broadband connection is 84%. But compare that to 2012. In that year 76% of homes had a home broadband connection while 7% got broadband in

AT&T begs Supreme Court to destroy the internet

AT&T and several other companies, last week petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn Obama-era internet regulatory rules. Here we go again, again. AT&T’s continuing fight to repeal net-neutrality shares so much in common with the GOP healthcare bill that they may as well start being packaged together. Both of them keep getting shot down, but like any grade-B horror movie-icon from the 1980’s, they keep returning in increasingly more stupid forms as shitty sequels to an already terrible premise. The head of the FCC, Ajit Pai, appears to be struggling to find a way to justify his existence to the people who

This is why people will think of cloud service as a technology that offers

These facts about a cloud phone system may surprise you

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Mar 29, 2017 3:40:00 PM The most recent FCC Voice Telephone Services report, published in November 2016, states that two thirds of businesses in the United States are still using switched access telephone lines (PSTN or POTS).

How Does VoIP Work?

VoIP phone service (Voice over IP; also known as digital phone service, digital telephony, or broadband phone) replaces your phone line with a high-speed Internet connection. It’s that simple.

In milliseconds, these data packets are sent over the Internet. When the data reaches the final destination, it is converted back to sound. If use VoIP to call someone on the traditional phone network (the “PSTN” or Public Switched Telephone Network), the VoIP call is converted to
