UK mobile customers face inflation-busting price hike
Friday, 16 February 2018 13:06

Mobile customers face a mid-contract price rise, with all four operators confirming they will hike fees by 4 per cent, 1 per cent above inflation.

That is in line with the Retail Price Index (RPI) figure for January 2018. Operators will begin introducing the increase from March.

Rob Hilborn, head of strategy at price comparison site Broadband Genie, said: “Price increases such as these will frustrate consumers - especially those on a tight budget - who have signed up to a contract on the understanding it has a fixed price.

Judges dismisses majority of Cisco's 'insane' IP defence against Arista
Friday, 16 February 2018 12:27

A US court has agreed to dismiss most of Cisco's IP defences in its long-running antitrust dispute with rival Arista Networks; the latter had previously described them as "breathtakingly broad, unprecedented and insane".

The ruling is the latest in Arista's antitrust case against Cisco, filed in 2016, two years after Cisco launched a series of copyright infringement suits against it.

Latvia comes top, with 50.6 per cent household penetration, according to the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) Ultrafast Broadband Country Ranking .

Meanwhile, Blighty is estimated to have fibre penetration of between 2-3 per cent, putting it ahead of Ireland, which appeared at the bottom of the chart at 1.1 per cent.

However, it seems the ranking also takes into account the proportion of homes subscribing to the service, as well as availability, and the UK still lags in market penetration.

Cisco surges after pricing switches-plus-subscriptions just below old hardware prices
Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:28

The flagship of Cisco's “intent-based networking” push, the Catalyst 9000 switch, is leaping out the door, and Switchzilla delivered other good news on it FY2018 Q2 earnings call.

The Catalyst 9000 is also in the vanguard of Cisco's other most important strategy, pivoting its income to software and subscriptions. That plan's gained momentum, too.

The software transformation means 33 percent of Cisco's income is now recurring revenue, with subscriptions now more than half the company's software sales (52 percent). For Q2 Cisco said it had US$5.5 billion in deferred product revenue from recurring software and subscription.

It's hardly the first
