Broadband Home Report Scores PC Magazine "Top 100"

Free Broadband Newsletter Celebrates 50th "Must Read" Issue

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. - If you wanted to know about broadband's tipping point, voice over IP or WiMAX long before most people, PC Magazine's "2004 100 Top Websites You Didn't Know You Couldn't Live Without" tells you the secret - it's Sandy and Dave's Report on the Broadband Home. For the past 50 months, veteran industry experts Sandy Teger and Dave Waks have provided an eye -opening view of "all things related to the broadband abode" in their monthly email newsletter. This Morris Plains, NJ team sifts through the barrage of information, removes the hype and highlights key trends and players.


Sandy and Dave's Report on the Broadband Home is written for members of the broadband industry ecosystem. Waks explains "The ecosystem consists of the many different kinds of organizations that play a role in getting broadband content, products and services to consumers." As a founding member of the Prodigy team in 1984, he learned first -hand that success in this industry takes more than technology -it involves compelling content, retail distribution, communications services and affordable consumer products.

The report focuses on new broadband technologies and the real applications in which they can be used - before they are generally recognized. Former AT&T strategist Teger notes that "The topics that we wrote about in 2000, like broadband leadership coming from Korea and effects of voice over IP on incumbent telcos, were news to many readers, although they have become clear as time passed."

After four years and celebrating their 50th monthly issue, Teger and Waks keep the new information flowing. Topics on their radar screens recently have included fiber to the home, broadband over power line (BPL) and ubiquitous wireless broadband.
