Re: Business Case for Broadband
@freehe The rual telephone initiative did a lot to bring phone service to these areas, but not all got service in the end. I don't know how well a similar broadband initiative could work, however.

"Content is king," but added that "distribution was the queen, and she has the keys to the kingdom!" The same comments were made by Radóczy "Content is essential. Whoever controls the content will control and guide the direction of industry."

Will TV Stay
"I don't think TV will disappear," said Dzialkowski, "but other devices, and a more personal TV experience will be key." I agree. I think TVs will become more integrated and provide more features similar to a computer or streaming device.

Subscriber Needs
The article states that younger viewers are viewing less TV. I disagree and say that all viewers are viewing less TV due to the many options available to watch content on tablets, iPads, and smartphones.  Viewers are no longer forced to watch a few options and can choose the specific content they want to view.

It is great that Cyfrowy Polsat developed a selection of distribution platforms, across satellite, paid terrestrial broadcast, Internet streamed OTT and mobile-specific services that works on multiple devices.

Re: Business Case for Broadband
@Michelle, good questions. I was wondering these same. Rural areas have been asking for services for years but still have not gotten them.

Skipping generations
There are benefits to being a late adopter. You skip intermediate generations of technology and can usually access mature, advanced technolkogies at a lower price. We are seeing that in some east european countries - Slovakia and Romania both offer 1 Gbps broadband in some parts today.

Re: Mobile broadband for the countryside is for the city people,not for the countryside people :-(
@Rolf - I think you raise an important point. Most national governments now have universal broadband connectivity as part of a broad development agenda, so there probably will be nationalized efforts to "wire" more rural areas. In some coutnries and regions it probably will move faster, and as you point out, areas that attract tourists are more likely to find market drivers for broadband deployment while others will have to wait for public sector investment.

But rural people vote too, so in democracies there will be pressure to make that happen. And there's evidence of web-based businesses helping drive economic growth in emerging markets, so certainly there could be a knock-on economic benefit.
