Re: CenturyLink's Hussain on Cultural Challenges
"We have not really extended our SDN networking overseas. We will test a few things in three or four countries. When that's available, the answer is yes."


Does anyone know why this is?  We used Level 3 for webinars and audioconferencing and whoever vetted the program didn't realize you could not orginate the call overseas.  I find it very strange and hope the merger will find a way to rectify that.

CenturyLink's Hussain on Cultural Challenges
This merger with Level 3 makes CenturyLink a behemoth, and yet it wants to become more "nimble and agile." I think melding the two companies to create that "seamlessness" to customers will take some time. It may also not make CenturyLink take less time to deliver on things.

Re: Lots of fiber (Brief Thoughts)
Good thing the cultures between these two companies are compatible. I've heard horror stories on the exact opposite. Total culture clash. 

It's got to be a fit or else you'll be stuck with an AOL Time Warner situation.

Re: Lots of fiber (Brief Thoughts)
@mpouraryan yes, you are right, I could not agree more as I do see your point... but for me it not easy as I could not bring myself to use the smartphone and use banking up on it... I prefer regular old nokia and see bank teller to do my banking...  

ps: my twitter account got hacked, my facebook account keep getting hacked...

Re: Lots of fiber (Brief Thoughts)
If you use this as a yard stick, though, then nothing is to be trusted--we have to use our common sense and good judgement always--that's where it all begins!!

Re: Lots of fiber (Brief Thoughts)
@mpouraryan for me it important to have trust in technology and people, Co. behind it ... as technology should be used to improve our lives, not to milk us out of money... I do not mind to pay for latest and greatest but I expect technology to be usable to me not restricted if I'm paying for it... the way I see it... but oportunity is always here as well :)

Re: Lots of fiber (Brief Thoughts)
It has nothing to do with trust--but a sense of purpose to be able to make a difference in our lives--that's the challenge but there is an opportunity for it as well....
