Wi-Fi management platform

Comcast Corporation, the major internet providers in the country will unveil its cloud-powered WiFi service called “xFi” in the month of May. xFi is a Wi-Fi management platform that will provide support to many of the currently installed broadband gateways across different regions. Besides, the telecom company also declared that its home security and automation service, Xfinity Home has attained a wider reach with almost one million subscribers currently. Ahead of the commercial launch of the service in May, Comcast is conducting several testing and trials of their newly developed xFi service.

Brian Roberts, Comcast’s chairman, and CEO stated that the service would get officially launched next month although the exact dates of the release are not made public. He said, “We think this [xFi] will be a game-changer for WiFi, enabling people to easily improve, personalize and manage and control their home network and the devices connected to it.”

The xFi service will bring forth numerous features that are accessible to the subscribers, like the ability to view their Wi-Fi names and passwords, troubleshooting network connection issues and the status of the network activity.

Dave Watson, Comcast Cable’s new president, and CEO said, “Our goal is to do with broadband what we did with video with X1 – create a better experience with WiFi. It lets you define the user experience throughout the household…There’s more to come on that, but I think it’s a premium position for us and evidence that we’ll keep on growing the broadband category, not just on speed, but coverage.”

It is rumored that the service will get support from many of the MSO’s deployed gateways along with the newly released models. Moreover, the addition of one million subscribers to the Xfinity Home system will offer an excellent opportunity to Comcast in terms of packaging and profit, and will pose a huge threat to the other popular internet providers.

Fixed Wireless Internet connectivity

AT&T, the best internet providers in the region has announced that it has completed the first batch of Fixed Wireless Internet connectivity to Georgia’s rural locations. The telecom mammoth is implementing this new internet connectivity extension as part of the FCC Connect America Fund. This initiative is aimed at offering faster and cheap internet connectivity to about 40,000 locations by late 2017 and to 1.1 million locations by 2020.

The new fixed wireless internet uses a static antenna system for transmitting and receiving LTE cellular data to homes and businesses located in the region. The service will offer download speeds of about 10 Mbps and 1 Mbps Upload speeds. The service falls short under FCC’s definitions as broadband but offers interference-free service, unlike the satellite internet. This service represents an affordable solution to deliver high-speed internet to customers in rural areas.

Eric Boyer, senior vice president, Wireless, and Wired Product Marketing at AT&T said, “Access to the internet is an important tool for advancing opportunities in communities. It creates economic growth, helps increase community engagement and makes education accessible. We’re committed to utilizing available technologies to connect hard-to-reach locations.”

The service is available for a monthly fee of $60 on a 1-year contract and offers 160 GB of data. Additionally, the provider charges about $10 for every 50 GB exceeding the limit and can run to about $200 per month. AT&T is also offering discounted rates of about $10 less per month for subscription of DirecTV or cellular service.

Betsy Huber, president of the National Grange stated, “AT&T’s Fixed Wireless Internet service is a great example of the innovative thinking necessary to bring high-speed internet to rural and under-served communities. When you consider that farmers, ranchers, and other rural residents are also small business owners, the need for high-speed internet becomes obvious. This is a milestone in communications services for rural and small-town America.”

The expansion of internet connectivity into the rural areas of Georgia is one among the large-scale extension projects currently undertaken by AT&T. The carrier is expecting to expand the fixed wireless internet connectivity to about 17 more states by the end of 2017. Through the Connect America Fund, AT&T is helping residents and farmers of the region with accessibility to cheap internet technology, which enables them to use the internet for help in many aspects of business and communication.

Comcast LoRa Alliance

Comcast Corporation, one of the best internet providers in the nation has declared that they have joined the LoRa Alliance as a sponsor member. Comcast is now moving towards using the LoRaWAN standard for its Internet of Things (IoT) platform. Besides getting a sponsor membership, Comcast will also obtain a seat on the board. The new move comes ahead of Comcast’s previous announcement made last year about selecting the LoRaWAN technology for its machineQ enterprise in the low-power IoT network. The major focus on deploying this technology was for utility metering, environmental monitoring and asset tracking.

Comcast through its role in the alliance will facilitate better and effective collaboration with other members. This will further provide the company with higher accessibility to numerous ecosystem providers. Alex Khorram, machineQ’s general manager said, “As we continue to deploy the LoRaWAN protocol in the United States, the core technology is exceeding our expectations in terms of network propagation and coverage.”

He further stated that, “We are seeing increasing demand and interest from a diverse client set, It’s exciting to commence our formal membership with the Alliance by bringing its respected global membership to the city of Philadelphia. We believe there is significant value in driving international collaboration and growth opportunities for LoRaWAN technology.”

Numerous people have come in support of LoRa, saying that it will achieve a solid growth in the country as in other continents like Europe and Asia. Geoff Mulligan, Chairman, LoRa Alliance stated in a press release, “Comcast’s successful citywide deployment in Philadelphia exemplifies the power of standardizing LPWANs to fully realize the worldwide potential of IoT technology. Comcast’s decision to become a Sponsor member is a strong endorsement of LoRaWAN technology. Though it only formalized its membership last month, Comcast is already stepping up to help drive the Alliance because it believes in the value of collaborating to further the LoRaWAN protocol’s global success.”

In addition, Comcast is also getting ready for hosting the eighth All-Members Meeting, Open House and Marketplace Exhibition of the Alliance from June 12-14 in Philadelphia.

One of the leading internet providers in the country, AT&T recently launched a new ad campaign that featured one of the famous faces from Hollywood, Mark Wahlberg. The officials from the telecom company hope that the new ad campaign, which pulls together the various exciting offers of AT&T, will help them win more customers.

In the ad, Mark Wahlberg stated that “the entertainment-loving people of America” must be able to access and watch their favorite TV shows and other programs whenever they want. The new ad campaign is called as “Terms & Conditions,” and it pitches AT&T’s wireless service, internet service, and DirecTV. The ad campaign further describes how subscribers will be able to stream TV shows and watch live TV by subscribing to the best internet service of AT&T.

In an ad, Wahlberg said, “We don’t want just some of our television on [the phone], we want all of it — all our favorite shows and live channels. Even C-SPAN.” He added, “A valuable and underappreciated public service.” The exec VP-marketing at AT&T Entertainment Group, Brad Bentley claimed that this is the first time the telecom company has brought all of their product lines collectively in a single ad campaign with the same message.

An analyst, Walter Piecyk stated that AT&T is currently focusing on an integrated strategy in order to “stem its customer losses.” He also added that the post-paid phone churn rate of the telecom company has seen significant improvement in the last few months while the post-paid phone churn rate of Verizon has worsened. Post-paid phone churn rate actually refers to the rate of subscribers leaving from a telecom company. He added, “Something must be working with bundling.”

AT&T’s latest ad campaign also features sports broadcaster Jay Glazer, actor James Marsden as his character in the fan favorite sci-fi thriller “Westworld” and actor and comedian Tracy Morgan. Reports indicate that these ads along with a parallel Spanish-language version, which features “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez will be running across print, TV and digital.

An analyst, Brian Wieser said, “I think they are trying to present themselves as friendly/helpful to consumers with their existing business portfolio. I think they may be mindful that this could help make them more appealing or less unappealing to regulators, but I don’t think it’s the only goal.”

Fox Channels Will Go Dark On Charter Spectrum Customers

Fox Channels Unavailable

Charter Spectrum cable TV subscribers might not be able to access some Fox channels due to a new dispute between Charter Communications and Fox Networks Group over retransmission fees. In a recent statement, the officials from Fox Networks indicated that National Geographic, FX, and more than a few regional sports channels would go dark in markets outside of New York.

A website that was created by Fox Networks stated that the blackout would happen on April 11. However, the website had earlier declared that the stations would go dark on April 10, 2017, although it didn’t happen, fortunately.

Charter Communications, which is the parent company of Charter Spectrum, stated that, “Fox is trying to gouge our customers using the increasingly common tactic of threats and removal of programming. They are attempting to extort Charter for hundreds of millions of dollars. We will continue to work towards a fair agreement.”

Reports from several reliable sources indicate that the stations, which carry Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, or Fox, are not currently involved in the dispute between both the parties. In addition to that, reports also claimed that both the parties are continuing negotiations in order to prevent the blackout of the stations.

Fox launched a website a few weeks ago with the main purpose of informing Charter Spectrum cable TV customers that popular TV shows such as the “Fargo”, “The Americans”, and many more will not be broadcasted in the Rochester area. The season premiere of the highly critically acclaimed show, “Fargo” will air on Fox on April 19, but Rochester subscribers will not be able to view the channel.

Fox said, “Fox and Charter have an agreement to carry the Fox networks that Charter has chosen to ignore. Charter’s tactics could result in its subscribers missing our popular programming. We’re disappointed that despite our best efforts to reach a resolution, Charter Spectrum subscribers could lose access to multiple Fox sports and entertainment networks on April 11.”

Disputes between stations and cable service providers have become a quite common scenario in the TV landscape these days. For instance, Hearst Television stations were removed from Dish Network a few weeks ago, where many other are renegotiating their terms now. However, customers will still be able to watch their favorite programs if they have the best internet connection at their home, as many of the major players offer their TV programming on streaming platforms as well.

Emerging Wireless Service

In a recent announcement, the officials from Comcast Corporation revealed that they are planning to conduct an event this week to shed more details into the emerging wireless service of the company. Officials from the company stated that they would host “an analyst event to discuss the details of its previously announced mobile initiative, which utilizes an existing MVNO agreement.”

The telecom company revealed their plans to launch a wireless service that combines the strengths of their MVNO deal with Verizon and vast Wi-Fi network back in the month of September. The executives of the company have been receiving a number of queries about this wireless plan at every single investor-related event, but they refused to share any details about the latest venture.

The officials from the company also confirmed that “senior members” of their leadership team would be appearing at the event. However, they didn’t reveal the name of the leaders. Still, reports indicate that Greg Butz, who is the senior VP of Comcast Mobile, would be attending the event.

The latest initiate from the telecom company is slated for a mid-2017 launch and it will operate primarily on Wi-Fi. However, it will also lean on the wireless network of Verizon whenever necessary. Comcast has not yet revealed the pricing details of their new service, but they hinted that the wireless offering would push customers toward bundling additional services.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said, “The product itself is going to save you money by taking our bundle. We’re going to sell more products, not including wireless, but broadband, as a result of this offering.” However, he didn’t make it clear on how buying more services from the telecom company will allow customers to save money.

“We’re getting ready for a day when you have a smart music system, a smart refrigerator, smart devices and they all just work in their home,” Roberts added. “Hopefully, the bits per home continue to rise and the company with the best network, defined as wired and wireless, will have a real advantage.”
