Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Revenues rose 3.0% from the prior year period, largely due to continued growth in high-speed data and, to a lesser extent, advertising and phone revenues, offset in part by lower video revenues. Average total monthly revenue per basic subscriber rose 8.4% to $103.17.

  • Video revenues declined 1.1%, primarily due to a lower number of basic subscribers, mostly offset by video rate increases and higher revenues from our digital video, digital video recorder and high-definition television services. We lost 13,000 basic subscribers, compared to a loss of 19,000 in the prior year period.We added 12,000 digital customers to end the quarter with 717,000, a 59.6% penetration of basic subscribers. Year-over-year, we gained 52,000 digital customers, a 7.8% growth rate.
  • High-speed data revenues rose 9.7%, mainly due to a year-over-year gain of 62,000 high-speed data customers, or 8.1%. We gained 13,000 high-speed data customers to end the quarter with 827,000, a 29.4% penetration of estimated homes passed.
  • Phone revenues grew 7.5%, largely due to a year-over-year increase of 50,000 phone customers, or 18.2%, offset in part by higher levels of discounted pricing. We gained 7,000 phone customers to end the quarter with 324,000, a 12.2% penetration of estimated marketable phone homes.
  • Advertising revenues rose 18.8%, primarily due to increased national and local sales, with significant contributions from the political and automotive categories.
