John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

AT&T has announced that they are leaving the payphone market. Andrew Smith take a look at their announcement and the projections that there will be companies who want to take on that "burden" of that particular business model.

It should be noted that most of the established telecom providers have already left the payphone market and those phones have found independent operators. However, it is definitely a niche market for any organization. It is a decreasing market share and a widely spread infrastructure ( ...sounds a little like the qwest rboc map... ).

Note - I did like this quote from Willard Nichols:

"The Census Bureau says that something between 7 million and 8 million U.S. households have no phone of any kind, and the number is growing. People who live in those homes will continue giving pay phones the business they need to survive."

I'm not sure if Mr Nichols has heard of the cell phone, but I'm guessing that at least some of the people who claim "no phone" for their residence have a cell phone in their pocket....
