What do you love about the Broadband industry?
I love how rapidly it changes, never a dull moment!
How has the industry evolved over your career, looking back what is most surprising?
I am not a young guy and the most amazing thing has been to witness technology evolution. When I started out of college, mechanical 1A telephone exchanges where still very common and they required large buildings to house them. Today, the equivalent SIP switch is the size of a dorm room mini fridge! Also, the path from 9.6kbs FSK modems to gFast has showed us what we can really do with a pair of copper telephone wires.
