What's the Story?: Altice USA flip flops on fiber

Light Reading's Alan Breznick joins the podcast to discuss why Altice USA had a change of heart regarding the company's broadband growth strategy. In addition, Breznick provides an update on Altice's Q3 results and a forecast on what to expect from the cable company next year.

"What they were doing had been working, but then suddenly it wasn't working as they found out in their third-quarter results," said Breznick. "They actually lost broadband subscribers, which is really hard to do during a pandemic. Most providers have been gaining broadband subscribers."

About the Author(s)

Kelsey Ziser

Editor, Light Reading

Kelsey Kusterer Ziser studied journalism and mass communication with a second major of Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but her interest in the telecom world started with a PR position at Connect2 Communications where she worked with a variety of clients focused on communications network infrastructure, including switches, routers, SBCs, data center equipment and systems. There, she witnessed the growing influence of fiber in the industry, as packet optical service delivery platforms transformed network performance and scale.

Her drive for communicating the impact of new technology translated into a communications position at the FREEDM Systems Center, a smart grid research lab at N.C. State University. While at FREEDM, Kelsey orchestrated the center’s webinar program which crossed multiple college campuses and covered research projects like cyber security in the smart grid, the center's smart solid-state transformer, fault isolation devices and distributed energy storage devices. She most recently worked in marketing at a healthcare company and is excited to take on the role of editor for Light Reading's Upskill U website.

Outside the office, she can be found riding her aging Raleigh-brand road bike or dodging snakes on runs through the local Raleigh, N.C., greenways. A glass half-full gal, Kelsey is grateful for the sunning reptiles because they motivate her to improve her timed miles.
