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.
Mariner... Making TV Better.
Being former rural market service providers themselves, the Mariner team knows:
- The challenges facing a rural market player are no different than those facing a conglomerate Telco.
- You need to make “small” work to your advantage.
- Effective solutions scale down as well as up!
- Price points and payback are a constant challenge.
