Why Did Verizon’s Wireless Service Revenue Fall? | Market Realist

Let us look at the two important segments of Verizon’s (VZ) wireless revenue. The smaller part is the company’s wireless equipment revenue, whereas the larger part is its wireless service revenue. The declining trend in the wireless component’s service revenue continued during 2Q17.

In 2Q17, Verizon reported wireless service revenue of $15.6 billion, a 6.7% reduction year-over-year (or YoY). This fall in wireless service revenue is mainly due to the lost overage revenue and pricing plan optimization mainly by single-line subscribers after the introduction of unlimited offerings.

About 75% of postpaid phone users are now on an unsubsidized pricing plan, as compared with 71% in 1Q17.
