The author reflects on the innovations of advanced video compression in the U.S. She states that the company had spent millions of dollars to develop an advanced video squisher that requires subscribes to spend larger amount for the service. She adds that AT&T Corp. has already utilized the service which operates through digital subscriber lines that can support compression. She suggests that cable providers should consider if their service is capable before offering it in the market.
