BTR Joins Forces with PennWell
Seven short years ago, Broadband Gear Report was born. Since then, we've changed our name to Broadband Technology Report to more accurately reflect our mission; grown from a few thousand subscribers to more than 21,000; added industry-specific publishing talent; pioneered video marketing for our clients; and created something that has succeeded when others have struggled.
Now, we find ourselves with many opportunities ahead and a strong desire to execute on each of them, but this can only be done with the help of a larger "parent" company that can help us achieve our goals.
Effective Jan. 1, BTR is joining forces with PennWell Corporation, a 101-year old communications powerhouse that has more than 200 different business-to-business media titles, events and resources. In short, PennWell is the global publishing powerhouse we've been looking for. And it has kept the entire BTR team -- Tim, Rob, Matt, Carl, Ron and Angel -- together and functioning as usual. You'll see very little change - just a lot more terrific opportunity.
In the months ahead, we will be introducing many new ways for you, our readers and sponsors, to stay abreast of the latest developments in broadband technology. We'll be delivering you a wealth of new resources and opportunities to grow your businesses in these exciting times.
With kind regards, and warmest wishes for the New Year.
