The NCTA is looking for somebody to build it a nice new broadband home.
Specifically, the NCTA, which is preparing to move its Washington, D.C. headquarters to a new Capitol Hill location this fall, has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a 1,000-square-foot "Broadband Home" exhibit. The proposed exhibit, modeled after a larger version that the association has displayed at recent cable trade shows, is designed to plug the cable industry's "advanced technology and programming offerings" to lawmakers, regulators and other Washington insiders.
Plans call for the exhibit to highlight a wide array of cable products and services, including HDTV, VoIP, video-on-demand (VOD), DVRs, high-speed data, whole home networking and the like. But it probably won't feature any schlocky jewelry from the home shopping channels.
