A Quick Look at Telco Revenues

A short take on telco revenues including Earthlink, Windstream, Frontier, Verizon and AT&T.
Is it the price revenue squeeze on telecom? Or is it the revenue dip associated with cloud services that have a lower ARPU than TDM ARPU?

"Windstream revenues decreased 2.4% year over year to $1.466 Billion in the second quarter. Data center and managed services revenues, which total approximately $31 million, increased 20 percent from the same period a year ago." [source]

"Service revenues fell 27.7%, while Product revenues reduced 8% year over year. Decommissioning legacy circuits by wireless carriers, decline in switched access revenues, lower intrastate access rates, fewer minutes of use and other transport-related network grooming affected the second quarter performance." [source]

"During the second quarter, total access lines, which include voice lines, high-speed Internet and digital television customers, decreased 5.1% year over year to 3.21 million. On a year-over-year basis, voice lines dropped 6.3% while digital television customers witnessed a decline of 5%. High-speed Internet also fell 3.4%." [zacks]
