While Israeli MNOs are "crying at night because of OTT" (here), AT&T's CEO, Randall Stephenson (pictured) sleeps well ..
Sue Marek reports to FierceTelecom Mr. Stephenson said the Silicon Flatirons' annual Digital Broadband Migration conference that he ".. is not worried about continued inroads that are being made by over-the-top video providers. "If the world moves to the OTT video model, that doesn't keep me awake at night," he said, adding that AT&T has approximately 4.5 million U-Verse IPTV video customers but the company's real driver is its broadband customers. "Our money is made off the broadband product … The consumer who acquires video off our broadband is not a bad model for us .. he believes that consumers will demand OTT video and that more and more people are watching video on tablets, smartphones and across multiple devices, which is why AT&T is focused on enabling customers to take their content with them across different devices"
