Overall, Verizon reported a 4.7% year-over year increase in consumer revenues from its wireline business. Average revenues per user (ARPU) were up 9.4% to $109.67.
During this morning's conference call, Verizon said it will join rivals T-Mobile (TMUS) and AT&T (T) in providing installment plans to aid subscribers who wish to upgrade their phones more often that once every two years. Verizon's CFO, Fran Shammo announced the new Verizon Edge plan but gave no further details.
