Not any more. Xchange Magazine got word earlier this week that OEN is folding its Fision triple-play service.
"Due to circumstances beyond our control, Fision will be discontinuing all services," a friendly, Houston-tinged voice tells anyone who calls OEN's main number. "We apologize for the inconvenience."
"Circumstances beyond our control" smacks of "nobody wanting to fund our company any more."
Fiber-to-the-home hasn't had quite the bubble buildup as VOIP services, considering it takes more than a guy with a computer. But the same kind of exuberance has taken hold, maybe on a milder level.
OEN won't be the last. At least they had an interesting ride:
OEN Launches HDTV Studio
OEN Names New CEO
OEN to OEM IPTV
OEN Launches IPTV
OEN Launches 20-Mbit/s Access
