Here are Broadband Technology Report's top 10 stories of 2019, as indicated by you, our audience. Besides being the most-viewed content on our site this year, they also provide a solid indication of what was most important and/or interesting to cable's tech community in 2019.

This year's top 10s were a mix of videos, editorial guides, items from the Diamond Technology Reviews program, feature stories, and webcasts. In terms of topics, SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo show coverage topped this year's list, followed closely by advances in fiber and wireless technology and home networking. The perennially popular "Time for a Metric Calendar" (which was written in 2015 as a joke) made the list again this year.

  2. Comcast giving Xfinity Flex to Internet-only subs for free
  3. Comcast flexes its MDU muscles
