Dave notes that there is actually a lot of channel potential here. How should solution providers be looking at bandwidth? Does partnering to sell connectivity make sense? What is the channel takeaway?

Topic 3: Almost the entire country of Bulgaria was hacked! The attack was not sophisticated, and the attacker was far from a genius. And what will be the response? Probably nothing, or close to nothing?
