Cable in Asia

CableTechTalk has published a guest post by John Medeiros, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA). Medeiros challenges the age-old “grass is always greener” myth. An excerpt:

Some American observers have argued that Asia is so far ahead in broadband that the U.S. should look here for tips on how to catch up. But with 56% of US broadband connections supplied by the cable industry [according to SNL Kagan], and with many parts of the country witnessing aggressive, creative competition between cable companies, satellite providers, and traditional telcos, the U.S., as viewed from Asia, looks mighty good.

The entire post is a fascinating read for those interested in such things.
