Allied Fiber CEO Sees Rise of OTT ‘Telcos’

Allied Fiber LLC CEO Hunter Newby said in an ITW interview that OTT platforms and content providers are a faster-growing customer segment for the dark fiber provider than traditional carriers. Various companies, including content providers, tower providers, social networks and subsea operators are approaching him with the desire to extend their control terrestrially or own the network in addition to their content.

Newby said that traditional carriers cannot move quickly enough for OTTs nor keep up with their data needs. What he is talking about goes beyond launching a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) on a wireless operator’s network like Google is doing with Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. .
