Residential services revenue

Residential services revenue growth was primarily driven by an increase in high-speed data revenue, partially offset by declines in video and voice revenue.

  • The growth in residential high-speed data revenue was the result of an increase in average revenue per subscriber, primarily due to an increase in equipment rental charges and a greater percentage of subscribers purchasing higher-priced tiers of service, as well as growth in high-speed data subscribers.
  • Residential video revenue decreased driven by declines in video subscribers and transactional video-on-demand revenue, partially offset by price increases and a greater percentage of subscribers purchasing higher-priced tiers of service.
  • Residential voice revenue decreased due to a decline in average revenue per subscriber and lower voice subscribers.

Business services revenue

Business services revenue growth was primarily due to increases in high-speed data and voice subscribers and growth in cell tower backhaul revenue.
