Cable MSO Have an Advantage with Wi-Fi First-For Now

This is because of video largely. Roughly 55 percent of smartphone owners and 61 percent of tablet owners use TV apps on their devices at least once per month, according to Parks Associates (News - Alert). Wi-Fi is the better choice for such high-bandwidth content, and overall there are roughly 10 billion devices worldwide that connect via Wi-Fi.

This presents opportunities for cable MSOs. As noted in an Alcatel-Lucent strategic white paper, Multiple System Operator (MSO) Wi-Fi®: Solutions to enhance the connected lifestyle, cable operators have the opportunity to be first-movers in the global migration to Wi-Fi First if they move fast, given their Wi-Fi infrastructure.
