Agree
I have to agree - I travel a lot to the US and internet connectivity is poor at best in most areas. In the Caribbean where Digicel operate you can now get 1Gbps in many areas and in my home country of Ireland SIRO, eir and e-net are deploying fibre at a blistering pace. The FCC data is frightening and will impact US economic performance, competiviness and productivity. It does not need to be 100% fiber either, advanced wireless and fiber will also deliver what is needed. Copper has had its day, it's time to move on.

Agree and Disagree
 

I think there will be an ongoing trend for greater fiber buildout for business customers and mobile services.  I think the larger telcos have given up on residential buildouts and plan to compete for consumer dollars with wireless services.  This in turn will reduce the competition from cable thus slowing their buildout.  

The thing to me is really 5G.  I know of a number of folks that think that they are going to put cell sites very densely and backhaul via fiber.  Given that this means that there might be a few cell sites per block in urban centers (with fiber to each company's sites), that we might see a boom in city street renewal.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
