Embrace the Evolution: How To Achieve Success in the Broadband Industry

Complacency is dangerous in today’s fast-paced environment. It’s a harsh reality, but broadband service providers (BSPs) who offer the same experiences and the same level of service, day in and day out, are at risk. As history has repeatedly demonstrated, those who fail to adapt inevitably fall behind.


Innovation Drives Market Share

Consider the taxi industry, once dominated by traditional players with lucrative medallions—the permits allowing taxis to operate—worth millions. In 2014, the average cost to purchase a New York City taxi medallion was more than $1 million. By 2021, its value had plummeted to just $80,000. The rise of an unseen innovator, Uber, had disrupted the entire industry in just a few short years. Their agility in creating a differentiated, personalized experience beat their rivals almost overnight, and long-established, family-run businesses evaporated.

What set Uber apart wasn't just technological prowess but the ability to reimagine the entire customer experience. Through their innovative app, they made it easier and cheaper to hail a ride—a simple but revolutionary idea. They then layered on additional value-added services like Uber Eats, Uber Drive, and Uber Freight, and the list will surely grow longer. Traditional taxi firms had the potential to innovate but failed to recognize the winds of change until it was too late.
