able to save money for DSL access providers by
automating the diagnosis of the copper wire in to the home
and small business as well as enterprises. DSL is

bargain. their growth is in the embrionic stages.
Motley Fool article on how CMTN CEO deceived
I can't even believe that TSTN would
drop 50% after such bs... CMTN has 0 integrity, their
relationship with LU has been toast due to competiting
products, they failed to add any other major customers,
they failed to penetrate international markets... this
has always been a total disaster in the making. And
CLEC consolidation probably hurts them, since they
might even lose those accounts altogether to the
incumbent DSLAM supplier.
CLEC concerns had already
been well voiced in the market (and priced into TSTN)
until it was simply revealed that CMTN is run by
crooks. If CMTN had blown up earlier, along with PDYN,
TSTN would be fine right now...
This is just
simply mind boggling and unfortunate for shareholders in
other DSL, especially TSTN which happenned to report on
the same day...
I still think TSTN could have
issued more clarity either in cc or with a press release
to try and clear the situation...
Now TSTN is
a completely dead stock... with no near term
catalyst in sight.
I hope you are not saying that I am bragging. I
still have over $10,000 loss on this baby. I just
believe it will come back. This is the last week for the
tax loss selling by the mutual funds. Earnings report
seems okay so far for most companies. It will be very
interesting to see what happened next week.
position), CPQ(no position), VERT(long)will have good
earnings report tonight. I have my finger crossed.
Well, well. I've spent the last several weeks
lurking as TSTN's customer base has shown the world that
they have no money and no idea how to get any more.
I've yawned through the tired posts about "It's MM
manipulation", "This is the next CSCO", "Buy low, sell high",
blah blah blah blah blah. I remember I called this a
"Silicon Valley pump-and-dump scheme" when all the
insiders were unloading and was called names (sob) for
offering my wisdom to the ignorant masses. Well...I WAS
RIGHT AND YOU LONGS ARE STILL A BUNCH OF SHEEP!! Still
lovin' life at 20?? Some of you longs, disclose your
basis to us all and declare you're still long. Dare
By the way, did the CC mention that Nokia, who
represents 10% of total revenue, acquired a competitor?
What, therefore, are the chances that this 10% will go
away? Answer me this little flock.
"In the bag."
Well.. hype aside, it seems like you might not be
giving TSTN enough credit.
While there is
competition, TSTN's solution appears to be more advanced and
THey have also done a
great job of diversifying their revenues
internationally and by leveraging the Nokia
It still seems like an ILEC could be
At least the CFO has some confidence, making that
10,000 share purchase toward the end of
So u're no longer bullish on TSTN's future (its
helpless stock price aside)?
You wrote, "TSTN is the only player that has a
total local loop automation tool for DSL."
only been around since the crash, but I started
following TSTN based on this capability, talk to any telco
type, this is a huge advantage for TSTN and a key
Wrong again, you chust don't get it patches. TSTN
is the only player that has a total local loop
automation tool for DSL. Tollgate and the others only offer
a patchwork of despirate sproducts that don't cut
it in the DSL management arena. Wrong again on
Copper Mountain. They are direct wanna be competitors
not partners with TSTN. Your are not differentiating
between POTS ISDN and DSL. There's a big difference when
managing DSL circutis such as: bandwith, cooper
capabilities, WEB Managemnt etc.. TSTN has this solution today
thats why they are growing at over 500% a clip. TSTN is
one of a king.
