Editor's Corner—Digging my new Spectrum internet service … but where’s the Wi-Fi optimization?

MSOs certainly know that faster speeds drive customer growth. Parks Associates found that 35% of consumers who switch broadband services do so for faster internet. But they need to understand the broader experience of in-home Wi-Fi. The introduction of value-added services comes as some investment analysts covering the cable industry have suggested that the industry aim for a higher ARPU.
