Edge Compute Applications vs Platform
Very interesting article.  As MEC is just becoming known, I think there is a distinction between interest in a flexible edge computing platform vs interest in applications--running on an edge platform--that address today's problems.  For example, mobile throughput guidance (MTG), in commercial field evaluation today, reduces stall (aka rebuffering) time on video streams by 20% during the busy hours and it also reduces latency since packets don't queue up as much in the RAN.  MTG also means coordination between Telco and content provider in controlling the quality of video streaming.  Substantial improvement in user video QoE IS top-of-mind for mobile operators.

Surprising results
Would be interesting to ask this survey again mid-way through 2017...surprised to see the low predictions of service provider interest in MEC since it could help meet the lower latency requirements needed to support 5G.
