Ma bell isn't much fun at parties. While traditional telcos
desperately want to pivot from broadband and cable to video and online
advertising, that transition has been challenging. Especially for a
sector that has spent the last 30 years as government-pampered
regional mono/duopolies. Many of these companies are good at running a
network or lobbying government to stifle competition, but they're
simply not very good at things like creativity, innovation, or
disruption. That was recently made abundantly clear by Verizon's face
plant after it tried to launch a sexy new Millennial-focused video
platform dubbed Go90.
