The article reports about cable operators specifically the larger ones. The big operators are characterized by high-capacity broadband backbone infrastructures. They are willing to use these backbones for doing something different other than supporting speedy Internet services. In other words, they prefer Internet telephony and latest video services and applications. Earlier, the cable operators didn't feel the need for backbone networks but now its indispensable. Operators should stick to Internet Protocol (IP) connections and should buy wavelengths and dark fiber. INSET: More partners on deck for Comcast's OTI.
