FTTH Council to FCC: Don't put fee on broadband Internet access - Lightwave

FTTH Council to FCC: Don't put fee on broadband Internet access
August 7, 2012
Lightwave Staff

The Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council Americas has filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) urging the regulatory body not to impose a fee on broadband Internet access services as part of the FCC’s Universal Service Fund restructuring efforts (see "FCC Chairman Genachowski unwraps USF overhaul plans"). In particular, no fee should be imposed that would increase as bandwidth and speed increase, the FTTH Council Americas advised.

The council joined other commenters in asserting that "the imposition of any fee on broadband Internet access service would deter demand, thereby harming the business case and chilling investment in high-speed networks."

If the Commission decides it must levy such a fee, a flat assessment per broadband connection would prove less damaging, according to the FTTH Council. Demanding higher fees for faster bandwidth services would hinder the FCC's goal of making faster broadband connections available to a larger segment of the U.S. population, the FTTH Council said.

The FTTH Council also disputed assertions that price has little to do with broadband demand. Such assertions are based on outdated and inconclusive economic studies, the council charged.

A copy of the filing is available from the FTTH Council Americas website.

NetSuite Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript - Seeking Alpha

NetSuite Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript - Seeking Alpha | Business Automation | Scoop.it

If you look at our numbers, our customer wins, the business was healthy across both our SMB -- and we're more largely M than the SMB these days. The complex, small business and then the heart of the mid-market is really where you see NetSuite playing more frequently. And the enterprise market is growing very rapidly for us

 

The number of customer wins, 329, was essentially flat with the prior year, began at a much healthier average selling price. So we're not really seeing -- we're seeing a very strong demand environment. I don't know what the rest of the world is seeing. If you look at it geographically, U.S. was very strong, Asia Pacific was very strong. Europe, of course, as Ron mentioned, revenue grew there in double digits. But of course, we're all -- everyone in the world is a little bit cautious about Europe, and we're treating it the same way. That said, I think we have the appropriate investment levels in Europe. And so we feel pretty good about where we are geographically as well.

 

Yes, it's hard to talk of the -- talk about capacity in the channel because we don't really give them quotas per se. So it's really hard to measure what we're adding. We look at the number of partners we're adding on an -- in an aggregate basis but then also, really importantly, is the quality of those partners. And that's why when I mentioned the names like Blytheco and Rimerman, these are the highest-quality, mid-market channel partners on the planet. Lots of experience, very large installed customer bases on traditional products.

 

Workday, they're still an HR solution. They don't do financials. We have basic HR but not for these large 100,000-person organization. So we're not in the HR aspect of that deal. They're also not in the financials aspects of that deal.

 

Last year, I think ASPs for the year were up 45%. And so we really planned around a much slower growth, a very low growth in ASPs this year just as a kind of reversion to the norm. So we're pretty pleased that we -- that the ASPs continue really to grow at all off of that incredible growth last year. So the OneWorld ASP was up 13% I think I said in my prepared remarks, and the ASP for everything else up 15%. So that's -- those are both fundamentally pretty strong ASP growth, I think, given the compare. And then OneWorld blends into the mix and brings the overall total ASP up 29% because OneWorld accounts for a bigger piece of it. So I think we're very happy with the way ASPs went in the quarter.

World's first web page from 1991

 

It was more than two decades ago that the first web page launched, and if you're curious what the web looked like back in 1991, CERN has preserved that original site for your perusing pleasure. Created by Tim Berners-Lee on a NeXT computer, the site was a place to find information about the new and exciting World Wide Web — "a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents," as it was described.

 

The preserved version has been around for some time, but isn't an exact replica, however. CERN says that it's a copy from 1992, and that "changes were made daily to the information available on the page as the WWW project developed." Sadly no screenshots exist of the original page. Still, while it's lacking in modern features like, say, images, it's a nice reminder of how much the web has grown in a relatively short time, and a great example of preservation in the digital age.
