Re: New technologies
said by NetFixer:No, we're talking about mobile LTE and fixed LTE to fill the gaps where it doesn't make sense from a business perspective to upgrade the wired infrastructure.
I think that you have misinterpreted AT&T's LTE plans for the future. We are not talking just about the current state of LTE as a mobile platform transport, but also about a fixed LTE deployment that will initially replace wireline DSL and POTS, and eventually be the "last mile" for U-verse as well.
said by NetFixer:Granted, breaking the unions would be helpful from a business perspective, but I don't believe AT&T wants to get rid of all of its wireline infrastructure. That simply does not make sense.
AT&T's ultimate goal is to rid themselves totally from copper wireline maintenance (and that will decimate the CWA as well).
