One Chart Showing Verizon is the Dominant Wireless Carrier even at the SUPER BOWL

Слайд 1

It’s no secret Verizon is the nation’s leading wireless carrier.

Слайд 2

The company has 108 million retail subscribers -- more than any other U.S. carrier.

Слайд 3

And it beats the competition in overall performance, according to RootMetrics.

Слайд 4

Even at the Super Bowl, the carrier obliterated the competition in overall data usage.

Слайд 6

Verizon used a whopping 4.1 terabytes of data!

Слайд 7

OK, so this is just the Super Bowl stats.

Слайд 8

And as FierceWireless notes, carriers can report data in different ways.

Слайд 9

But it still shows how much more capable Verizon’s network is overall.

Слайд 10

Verizon reported 1.9 TB of data used at the 2014 Super Bowl, which still exceeds AT&T’s 2015 Super Bowl data usage.

Слайд 11

And for carriers, more data usage can mean more revenue per customer.

Слайд 12

Verizon measures this using Average Revenue Per Account (ARPA), and as usage goes up so does ARPA.

Слайд 13

"Growth in ARPA is a function of device adoption, account growth, and increased usage.” -- Fran Shammo, Verizon CFO

Слайд 14

In Q4 2014, Verizon’s ARPA was up 3.5% year-over-year.

Слайд 15

Of course, Verizon customers’ data usage at the Super Bowl doesn’t prove the company is the strongest carrier.

Слайд 16

But it’s a solid indicator that the carrier continues to dominate the industry.

Слайд 17

Verizon already has the fastest overall network speeds and the best performing network.

Слайд 18

And it’s only getting stronger.

Слайд 19

Verizon was a major bidder in the FCC’s recent wireless spectrum auction.

Слайд 20

Which should add to the company’s network prowess, and keep it one step ahead of the competition.

Слайд 21

At least, at next year’s Super Bowl.
