Killer Services from the Killer App Conference

In the article, "What Eating Bandwidth?" from BB Properties magazine's report from the Killer App Conference in Fort Wayne, there is a listing of many premium services that providers can (and should) offer thier customers to increase revenue.
  • Offer ‘communectivity’ – community connectivity.
  • There are many concierge programs out there.
  • The Nintendo Wii is a runaway hit ..... virtual bowling and so forth.
  • Fitlink is in 300 YMCAs across the country.
  • There are networked laundry centers by Matt Grey.
  • Eaton has monitoring that can be added for any valves in the home.
  • There are Web-based thermostats from Webpoint.
  • partnering with to offer remote and onsite services
  • We are adding home theater setup.
  • Tele-Health.
  • Distance Learning and e-Tutoring.

It is time to think beyond selling just connectivity and offer services that require broadband - it increases the take rate and BB penetration.
