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

Slide 1

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

Slide 2

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

Slide 3

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

Slide 4

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

Slide 5

Source: FierceWireless.

Slide 6

Verizon used a whopping 4.1 terabytes of data!

Slide 7

OK, so this is just the Super Bowl stats.

Slide 8

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

Slide 9

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

Slide 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.

Slide 11

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

Slide 12

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

Slide 13

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

Slide 14

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

Slide 15

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

Slide 16

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

Slide 17

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

Slide 18

And it’s only getting stronger.

Slide 19

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

Slide 20

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

Slide 21

At least, at next year’s Super Bowl.
