ABSTRACT
The article discusses certain issues related to the adoption of AT&T Corp.'s IPTV technology. Although the cost of IP networking equipment is reduced, Verizon Corp. avoids the IPTV migration because its FiOS TV service is superior to the IPTV network of AT&T Corp. Moreover, FiOS affords Verizon with significantly more bandwidth, hundreds of megabits per second. However, many expect that the transition to IPTV is inevitable. Most major cable operators have upgraded to Gigabit Ethernet backbones and many have widely rolled out IP-based telephony.
