Investopedia, the online financial wiki, expands on this as a business' ability to protect its competitive advantage, long-term profits, and market share from competing firms. This moat "serves to protect those inside the fortress and their riches from outsiders." https://dailycaller.com/2018/11/13/competition-policy-att-verizon-wireless-moat/ -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20181115132525.GA7179@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Thu, 15 Nov 2018 08:25:25 -0500 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> Subject: The 5G revolution is upon us. Here's everything you need to know Separating hype from the reality of the next generation of wireless technology. By Roger Cheng The next generation of wireless technology, fittingly known as 5G, is just around the corner. If you ask Verizon, it's already here. One thing the entire industry can agree on is it's going to change our lives. The industry, of course, really wants 5G to be a thing. https://www.cnet.com/news/the-5g-revolution-is-upon-us-heres-everything-you-need-to-know/ -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20181115132050.GA7143@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Thu, 15 Nov 2018 08:20:51 -0500 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> Subject: AT&T and Verizon Pursue Different Paths Into the Future AT&T plunges into programming and advertising, while Verizon banks on a network built to milk 5G technology. By Drew FitzGerald and Sarah Krouse A maturing wireless industry has drawn sharply different responses from industry leaders AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., two companies that used to move in tandem. AT&T is diving headfirst into entertainment and advertising, spending tens of billions of dollars to control in-demand programming like HBO's "Game of Thrones" and live National Basketball Association games on TNT that it can distribute throughout its wireless, satellite and fiber-optic networks. https://www.wsj.com/articles/at-t-and-verizon-pursue-different-paths-into-the-future-1541999131 -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Fri, 16 Nov 2018
