Medium-sized businesses are just now moving in a major way to Carrier Ethernet services despite their availability for over a decade. On the demand side, the need for high-speed, high-quality, and reliable connectivity is just emerging in this market segment, while on the supply side, service providers are finally overcoming tough technical obstacles to service delivery.

Residential broadband has benefited from massive investment and promotional programs by incumbent MSOs and telcos that see broadband as a means of restructuring their businesses to be data-centric.
