re: Verizon's 4G Drive Time


The next step Verizon should take is to publish the results of these drive tests -- why not let your customers know that you are doing this to improve the network and be honest about where it does and doesn't work?


Of course that's harder than just putting up a billboard that says "Rule the Air." But c'mon Verizon. Why buff up the media with stories about cool network-sniffing vans and then keep the results secret?

Dan-


Thanks for literally getting under the hood for this report.  


I agree with Mr. Kapustka in wondering why Verizon couldn't team up with their marketing department and develop some kind of ongoing progress report concerning their coverage?  


I also shared your video report on 4gWirelessNews.com and 4gWirelessNetwork.com.

re: Verizon's 4G Drive Time


Like everything out there verizon always say there are better but when the service is not in your area you do not get a good answer to when the 4g is going to be in your area or the cost of the new service willbe. The ablity of the fois service to help push the 4g into area that can not have 4g but could use the hight speed of the fiber that verizon land service is pushing out and try to take over the cable company.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
