Cable companies bring valuable content and connectivity to communities around the country. However, the industry is at a critical moment as it adapts to changing circumstances. More sources of content mean more competition for viewers. There is constant downward pressure on price, and many customers are cutting the cord altogether. Additionally, more TV advertising spends are being reallocated to digital. However, your company can overcome these challenges and turn them into significant new opportunities.

Data usage is skyrocketing and will only continue to increase as people utilize more connected smart home devices. Stronger, more reliable infrastructure is necessary to meet this growing demand and position yourself for IoT networks. And as you expand your content offering to provide more value for your customers, your operations gain an additional layer of complexity. This means creating and delivering content to customers, both through cable boxes and over-the-top (OTT). Customers also expect to save and rewatch content later, which requires storage capacity and additional content delivery abilities. To extend your offerings and find new ways to connect your customers to content, you need a network that supports your current and future capabilities. As the nation’s largest provider of shared communications infrastructure, we can provide comprehensive solutions that enable you to grow your core network while also creating opportunities around content creation and distribution.
