The article states that in the hunt for more lucrative commercial subscriber business, cable operators are finding that the midsized enterprise is a desirable game. With estimates that mid-sized businesses makeup a solid majority of the total enterprise telecommunications market, cable operators are starting to take more notice and are targeting businesses beyond small office and home office within reach of their hybrid fiber/coax networks. While there still may be debate over whether DOCSIS or proprietary technology fits better for this business middle of the road, there isn't much doubt among the players that the interest among cable operators is accelerating. INSET: For business service, you must cross the 'T's.
