DURHAM, N.H. -- Leichtman Research Group, Inc. (LRG) found that the seventeen largest cable and telephone providers in the US – representing about 93% of the market – acquired about 580,000 net additional high-speed Internet subscribers in the third quarter of 2012. These top broadband providers now account for over 80.7 million subscribers -- with cable companies having 46.2 million broadband subscribers, and telephone companies having 34.5 million subscribers.
“While top cable and telephone companies now account for over 80 million broadband subscribers, the industry continues to grow at a modest pace,” said Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst for Leichtman Research Group, Inc. “Over the first three quarters of 2012, the top broadband providers added over 2.1 million subscribers, compared to nearly 2.3 million subscribers added in the first three quarters of 2011.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
