Study: Triple play providers should focus less on branding

A recent TNS Telecoms study revealed that consumers in the US are largely indifferent to who provides them with bundled services. Despite the industry's refocused efforts to emphasize the triple-play (bundled phone, video and data services), TNS' study indicates that 67 percent of households did not have a preference for their service provider. Nationwide, only 16 percent of households had a preference for their local provider. The results indicate that providers will need to compete for consumers based on service offerings and pricing and focus less on brand.
