Things You Might Want to Know (Part 215)

Some nuggets of factoids and articles.

Here's how you end up with a bully in a position of authority at an organization: here.

"Build a team of people who work together, who care and who learn and you'll end up with the organization you deserve. Build the opposite and you also get what you deserve." [Seth]

Google Fiber's pole attachment spat with AT&T, Comcast: something's got to give [fierce]. Probably why Google bought Webpass and starting saying Wireless Fiber.

How Google Fiber Is Changing Its Strategy as Costs Grow.

DSL is losing big time. "According to research from Leichtman Research Group (LRG), major telco broadband losses are accelerating, more than doubling from a year ago. Collectively, major tier 1 and 2 telcos lost 360K broadband subscribers in 2Q16, compared with 150K in 2Q15. Compare that with major cable broadband net adds of 553K in 2Q16." [telecompetitor]

Fatbeam in Idaho "won 11 FCC E-rate contracts, which will help fund the construction of an additional 200 miles of fiber." [telecomp]

Lightower is for sale. Either Level3 or Zayo buying. Maybe.

A little something about CHURN.
