Verizon Wireless adds 2.1 million new subscribers
It's that time of the year again, and the numbers of new subscribers to the various carriers are beginning to trickle in. By adding 2.1 million new users, Verizon Wireless officially crossed the 70 million subscriber mark for the first time. Their numbers come from 1.5 million new customers, and approximately 630,000 from the purchase of Rural Cellular Corporation.

As we covered last week, AT&T gained quite a few customers itself. With all of the new customers coming to the largest two carriers in the U.S., one has to wonder exactly where they're coming from. Sprint's 3rd quarter announcement on November 7th may be a bit worse than investors had hoped.

Maybe they will leave Chad hanging around, get it political humor, hanging chad. I would rather see the phones that Alltel allows on it's network that VZW has passed on or has taken many more months to release become available.

I think they should have a commercial where test man beats up Chad from alltel. That would be pretty funny.

verizon wireless added less post pay net adds then att but verizons profit margin was a lot higher then att's. this means att has more cheap customers that complain to much and they lose more money on people always wanting free stuff

too bad that Verizon still sucks and I have been with them for ten years. If it weren t for all the people I helped grt tthem I would switch to AT&T.

"Other numbers were impressive as well, including a record 1.7M postpaid adds and 2M total adds" att added 2M NEW CUSTERS AS YOU CAN SEE HERE FROM THE STATEMENT. AND VERIZON ONLY ADDED 1.5M THEY HAD TO BUY OUT ANOTHER CELL COMPANY TO AQUIRE THE REST OF THERE NUMBER. yOU GUYS ARE SO SMART..LMFAO P.S. the other .3 was pre-paid customers which still count...
