WSJ reports on a Cable Labs research that puts some extra pressure on cable companies. While the truth is likely somewhere in the middle, this is good news for startups such as our Narad Networks.
The report is inflaming some cable executives who insist existing networks can meet future broadband demands. “I wholly disagree with the conclusions,” says Mike LaJoie, chief technology officer of Time Warner Inc.’s cable division. Its assumptions “are not reflective of what our reality is.” Says Dave Fellows, chief technology officer at Comcast Corp.: “This report does not reflect our view.”
