Sonja Petrova is one of our Project Managers based out of IMMCO’s headquarters in Atlanta, GA. She was born and raised in Macedonia, living there until finishing college. Around that time, the economy was struggling, and she was considering a move to either New Zealand or the US.
Opportunity struck in the US, so Sonja took the chance and started her new life here. With work as a QA/QC technician and then becoming the team lead for a big telecom project, Sonja got her experience in the cable and telecom industry more than 15 years ago. Her work in the industry continued as she got involved with large CATV projects. With these experiences in hand, Sonja joined the IMMCO family seven years ago as a project manager.
Around the office at IMMCO, Sonja is known for her flexibility and adaptability, being able to take on any project that comes her way and establishing very good relationships with our clients. Her work desk also wins the award for "most vibrant"!
When it comes to future trends in the industry, she points to the COVID-19 pandemic as a major catalyst for the entire world of broadband. This past year, businesses and individuals are working differently than at any point in history. More and more people are willing to pay for fiber, and speeds of 50 to 100 Mbps are becoming commonplace.
While slow internet used to be an inconvenience in the past, in today’s world, it’s a major problem. The advent of 5G provides greater speed to move more data, decreases latency for shorter load times, and increases the ability to connect more devices at once. This opens up the reality of smart cities that are designed to create a better quality of living. Interconnected networks are being created so that residents can access the internet to better manage their daily activities as simple as finding a parking spot or corresponding directly with their government.
Overall, Sonja says, things are moving towards speed, convenience and connectivity, which is good news for all of us!
