English term or phrase: use DSL as a bit of a hammer
Overall, Matt Davis, broadband access program director for the Yankee Group, argues that naked DSL is inevitable. “I think that naked DSL is the way everyone is going to go, and I don’t think [the telephone companies] can preserve the association between POTS and DSL,” said Davis. “There has to be a decision made if someone cuts the cord, do we want them to go to cable modem? As we see VoIP pushed out, that will be another area where you don’t want to pay twice. It made good business sense to not go naked and use DSL as a bit of a hammer, but I think the high-speed access market is getting too competitive and they will have to think more flexibly.”
注：go naked是指go naked DSL。naked DSL是一种新兴的DSL服务。
