Internet access is increasingly the only wireline communications service valued by the residential and small business customer. Consumers have a deeper relationship with the media streaming into their homes, the apps on their smartphones, and the IoT devices that automate their smart homes than with the network provider connecting them to the world.
To be successful, service providers must provide an exceptional smart home solution, competing for subscribers in ways that are both familiar and alien.
Subscriber experience revolves around online applications, Wi-Fi coverage, and IoT devices in the homes and office.
Service expectations have been shaped by online experiences, leading subscribers to:
crave wireless connectivity everywhere and all the time,
demand immediate and flexible service choice and delivery,
expect everything to be simple yet come with full-service support, and
desire a safe and secure home and online experience.
Anything less is a disappointment.
