Why you need IPTV; Why you need Mariner.

TV is not just a big player's game.

  • TV has become a must-have for all telcos, regardless of size, to compete effectively.
  • Rural Telcos are well positioned.. over 75% of rural service providers are delivering Video On Demand (VOD) to their customers.
  • Challenges remain for all service providers, specifically delivering consistent service quality and cost effective TV operations.

Challenges Currently Faced by Operators:

  • 35% of all TV installs require a second dispatch (truck roll).
  • 65% of all customer churn is triggered by a service quality issue.
  • Greater than 80% of set top boxes (STB’s) swapped out prove to be OK when tested in the refurbishment process.
