Revenue
In the second quarter of 2010, XO’s Broadband offerings generated $220.0 million in revenue, an increase of $24.6 million, or 13%, from the year-ago period. This increase resulted from the continued growth in XO’s diverse broadband offerings, such as IP-VPN, IP Flex, Ethernet and Dedicated Internet Access services.
The revenue growth in XO’s Broadband services is partially offset by the year-over-year decrease in Integrated/Voice and Legacy TDM services. Revenue for Integrated/Voice Services during the second quarter of 2010 was $56.8 million, a decrease of $17.7 million, or 24%, compared to the year ago period. This category is inclusive of XO’s wholesale long distance offering, Carrier Long Distance Termination (CLDT), which declined $4.2 million compared to the year-ago period. This decline was the result of aforementioned targeted price increases implemented to improve margins on selected routes.
