The United States’ largest carriers Verizon Wireless reached more contract subscribers than the AT&T and the Verizon Wireless said Friday that its profit had doubled since the same time last year. a portion of it can be attributed to an uptick in contract wireless subscribers that puts Verizon’s number of such customers almost three times ahead of AT&T’s this quarter.
However during the quarter of this year and the company’s profits rose to $1.38 billion, or 49 cents per share, from $659 million, or 23% per share. Verizon Wireless launched its 4G network in the U.S. and announced five new 4G devices (though neither the Droid Razr or iPhone 4S were in stores before the quarter ended). Verizon Wireless subscriber numbers were still below analyst expectations. “It’s difficult to complain about (subscribers),” Stifel Nicolaus analyst Chris King told Reuters. “It’s going to be so much better than everybody else’s. They’re still continuing to take market share.” We think that Verizon can be one of the best carriers ever in the US because it’s kind of carrier the contract subscribers used which letting them to use with better coverage and more options in the Carrier (Verizon).
