– The short-lived former satellite television channel seems like a less important meaning of "Avago" than the current large publicly traded technology company. The company, which seems about to double in size due to a major announcement today, seems to often be referred to simply as "Avago", which is more simple and concise than "Avago Technologies" while remaining recognizable. Note that in the logo shown in the article, the "technologies" part of the company's longer version of its name is de-emphasized, and some of the sources omit it, and the stock ticker symbol is "AVGO", not something like "AVGT" or "AVTC". 90-day viewing statistics are 30k for the company, 1k for the television channel. Since the television channel is defunct, interest in that topic is likely to decline as time moves forward. It also seems possible that many people currently landing on the page for the television channel are looking for the article about the technology company. Several of the incoming links (from Michael Grimes, RF Micro Devices, Silver Lake Partners, and User:SageGreenRider/List of divestitures by Hewlett-Packard) are errors caused by that confusion. A similar example is that Huawei Technologies is a redirect to Huawei. --Relisted. George Ho (talk) 21:58, 4 June 2015 (UTC)BarrelProof (talk) 17:45, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

How to handle the name change?[edit]

The URL and the headline is now out-of-sync with the new name. The new name is occupied with the article about Broadcom (Corporation) prior to its acquisition by (or merger into) AVGO (Broadcom Limited). Any one know how to handle such a case? Move this article to Broadcom Limited? Move Broadcom to Broadcom Corporation? Talk to SageGreenRider 12:50, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

I boldly did it. I also cut-pasted the content at Broadcom to Broadcom Corporation and overwrote the content at Broadcom with a disambig navigation. hth. Talk to SageGreenRider 13:46, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Highlighted by President Trump for moving HQ back to US, Nov 2 2017[edit]

I would think this elevated praise would be appropriate of mention in the article.--Wikipietime (talk) 18:24, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Also, It is reported that the acquisition by AVAGO was the biggest deal on record for tech sector. --Wikipietime (talk) 18:30, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
