GigaOM : » AT&T, Alcatel’s Stealth Take Over of 2Wire?
2Wire is an up-and-comer in the residential broadband space. An interesting note buried in this post is that 2Wire has sold 4 million home gateways already. You have to wonder where they've been deployed. Do you know anyone with a home gateway? Unless you're luckey enough to have FiOS or Lightspeed service, probably not. Maybe these sales are driven from Europe.
Another hidden gem is that Parks Associates predicts that annual shipments of residential gateways will grow from 3.7 million units in 2005 to nearly 16 million units by the end of 2009.
