“While we often see some seasonality for increased churn in the December quarter due to the end of the tax year, business customer churn was at its lowest quarterly levels ever at 1.6%. Revenue churn, which generally lags customer churn, did increase during the third fiscal quarter due primarily to specific issues with a handful of customers unrelated to 8x8 service,” continued Martin. “Overall, our revenue and customer growth continues to vastly outpace our churn, and, as evident in our operating metrics, we continue to see expanding growth opportunities with both new and current customers as they take on additional services.”
