SureWest plans IPTV over ADSL2+, switches to Mediaroom

Independent telco SureWest Communications, which has made its reputation as an IPTV service provider mostly over fiber-to-the-home architectures, is now set to launch IPTV over bonded ADSL2+ in its home market of Sacramento, Calif. About 25,000 homes eventually could get the service in areas of that market that are already served by bonded ADSL2+ Internet service.

The new launch plan comes after SureWest switched the Sacramento network to Microsoft's Mediaroom platform from its previous Minerva middleware.
