In past cycles, there was typically a single driver. Today, we have a number of applications driving broadband desires: 4G and 5G mobile, fixed broadband to the house and the business, CAF II incentives for rural broadband advancement, Mexico industry deregulation, the rise of the IoT. There's quite a stir in the industry. As a result, we are seeing the rise of hyper broadband providers via industry consolidation." – Steve Szymanski, VP of Telecom Business and Solutions, Prysmian Group
