Go2Broadband is going to become the go-to source for more than just cable modem service soon.
CableLabs Inc. has plans in the works to expand the role of its Go2Broadband service locator project from high-speed cable modem service to digital TV service and video-on-demand offerings.
Go2Broadband has provided a central database of service availability for retailers and consumers to check whether cable modem service is offered in their area. Available at kiosks in retail stores and via the Web, Go2Broadband draws information from eight of the top 10 U.S. MSOs and attracted more than 550,000 users in May alone.
"AT&T Broadband supports the initiative and our customers already benefiting from its use. The industry and our customers will benefit from Go2Broadband's expanded, multiple service capabilities," said Susan Marshall, senior vice president of advanced broadband services for AT&T Broadband.
CableLabs also is planning a summit meeting July 9 for existing and new Go2Broadband affiliates. The meeting will cover retail and marketing strategies for the service.
