RE: AT&T: 15 Mbps Internet connections "irrelevant"
Sorry if I wasn't clear, but I meant IP-based STB's, like those made from Amino, Entone, i3 Micro, Motorola's Kreatel, Cisco's Scientific-Atlanta, Wegener, Sentivision and middleware from vendors such as Infogate, Microsoft, Minerva, Orca Interactive, and Siemen's Myrio. And now that content providers are starting to require encryption, none of these earlier pairs can actually be used unless they include conditional access solutions from the likes of Irdeto, Latens, Nagravision, Verimatrix, Widevine. DIRECTV does not use an IP-based STB, AFAIK, and delivers their content to consumers via satellite, not using AT&T last-mile's infrastructure, which initiated this thread.
