Disconnecting The Holy Grail

from the triple-play-to-where? dept

Last week, we wrote about the fight for the “triple play” of voice, video and data to the home over a single wide pipe. At the time, I wondered whether or not the cable companies and telcos were a little too focused on the “to the home” part — and ignoring how wireless might matter. Over at TheFeature, I’ve tried to explore this idea in further detail and look at how the move to a wireless world may take some of the thunder away from the triple play battle. The triple play is still important, but it may now need to be an anywhere, anytime to any device kind of triple play, rather than a fat pipe connected to your home.
