East Coast assets of FiberLight were finally sold!

The East Coast assets of FiberLight were finally sold, according to Ramblings (and notes in an investor report by Atlantic Broadband owner, Cogeco).

FiberLight’s history dates back to 1993 when the original assets were founded as ASCI. ASCI went on to became e.spire. In 2002, after another management buy-out, it became Xspedius Fiber Group. This company later spun out the fiber division as FiberLight in 2005 after yet another PE firm change.

Interesting to me: Atlantic Broadband purchased several dark fibres throughout south Florida from FiberLight, LLC for a consideration of US$16.8 million.

So an IRU cost that much now.

Get the Most out of the Trade Show

How do you maximize your benefits from a trade show?

Here are some simple tips to follow:

  1. Register early to get the best rate.
  2. Stay at the host hotel because you will run into more folks than if you are commuting to your hotel.
  3. Research travel arrangements – like airfare, cabs, buses, Uber, whatever. How expensive is parking?
  4. Have plenty of business cards [In fact, order some now at MOO!]
  5. What is your Goal? What two or three things do you need to take away from this show for it to be positive?
  6. Plan in Advance. Check to see what sponsors and speakers will be there. What sessions look interesting? Mark your calendar!
  7. For the biggest impact vendors like to have a booth or table. See about opportunities to sit on a panel. This gives you a little bit of spotlight.
  8. Bring two pairs of comfortable shoes and wear them on alternate days.
  9. Wear your badge in plain site. 
  10. Be sure to follow up with new contacts and vendors after the show. 
  11. Note anything interesting in a notebook (or a note taking app like Evernote). 
  12. Carry a pen or 2! 

Lately, some folks just take a photo of my business card – or quickly add me to LinkedIn. I still take notes on business cards  (hence the pens)

Good thought:  Take a moment after the show to make note of any exhibits or displays that you thought were particularly effective. What did they do that you could implement in your own company’s marketing campaign?

Dinner:  Having a meal is a bonding experience. I always have dinner gatherings at shows. You can too. Many attendees have no plans, so inviting folks to dinner (even a Dutch treat) will quickly make you a friend.

Peter Shankman has some interesting things to add.

We’ll see you in New Orleans on Feb 5-7 for FISPA LIVE and the following week on 2/13-2/16 at ITEXPO + CVX Expo + SDWAN in Ft Lauderdale.

On Talent Especially Millennials

FISPA wanted me to do a talk on Millennials but I just don’t have enough real world experience except in the startup world. But NYU Professor Scott Galloway does a good job of giving some advice on managing Millennials. Despite that it is about Retail, the data can be extrapolated to your business as well.

Are We at the End of Broadband Growth?

Are We at the End of Broadband Growth? is a blog post from Doug. Nut it leads me to speculate that one reason the Duopoly fought so hard to repeal Net Neutrality was that all their pies are full – voice, video/TV, broadband, and cellular. There isn’t much growth left.

It is a game of take away now. That is an expensive game for customer acquisition.

Every recast contract is a write down since customers now want twice the speed for less money than they did 3 years ago.

The Duopoly (AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Charter/Spectrum, Frontier, Altice) want to increase ARPU, but in cellular there is too much competition. T-Mobile and Sprint bring too much price pressure to bear. And they have to spend billions on 5G build out.

Despite having to lay tons of fiber, broadband rates are stagnant as well. Hence, the reason for all the hidden fees.

Something to think about.
