Verizon wireline revenue estimates for the upcoming second quarter have been lowered by Wells Fargo by $343 million, to $7.52 billion, as the telco reported that installation of new FiOS subscribers has plummeted during the wireline labor strike.
Verizon has not yet come to an agreement with the wireline workers represented by the CWA and IBEW, but a top company executive says they are getting closer to a resolution as the strike enters its sixth week.
Verizon's recent announcement to bring FiOS to Boston -- one of the cities that was initially left out of its initial build target-- was driven by a desire to fulfill its wireless LTE and business service desires, its top financial executive said.
TDS Telecom has joined the growing ranks of wireline operators beginning to implement or increase usage caps on their broadband customers.
AT&T is making another statement in the wake of Google Fiber's move to bring competitively priced FTTH into the San Francisco metro market by launching its 1 Gbps GigaPower FTTH service in six areas at the same $70 per month price point.
AT&T's fiber deployment to homes and businesses isn't just taking place in its own territory as the service provider is finding new business service and backhaul opportunities outside its footprint.
AT&T is putting its fiber installation workers to the task, announcing expansions of its fiber-to-the-premises services for residential and business customers in eight markets in the Midwest, South and West.
Google Fiber is moving ahead with its FTTH build in Huntsville, Alabama as utility crews began installing fiber over the past week that will support its low-priced 1 Gbps Internet service.
TDS Telecom continues to deepen its FTTH network build with a plan to reach a large portion of its largely rural incumbent carrier footprint, offering several bandwidth options that range from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, as well as IPTV.
