Comcast offsets video losses with business, wireless, and broadband



Comcast added 372,000 net customers in the fourth quarter as it continues to navigate the shifting cable bundle, which means fewer video subscribers offset by broadband, business, and wireless additions.

The cable, technology, and media giant, which is expected to talk extensively about its Peacock streaming service, the company delivered 1.13 million net customer additions for 2019. In that mix, Comcast lost 133,000 residential video customers in the fourth quarter but added 424,000 broadband subscribers.

In addition, Comcast said it added 261,000 wireless lines in the fourth quarter and now has more than two million wireless lines.

By revenue in the fourth quarter, Comcast’s high-speed Internet services showed growth of 8.8% with wireless up 39.4% and business services up 8.8%.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts noted the cable unit is differentiating its broadband service with security and smart home services as well as xFi.

Overall, Comcast reported fourth-quarter revenue of $28.4 billion, up 2% from a year ago, with earnings per share of 68 cents. Non-GAAP earnings were 79 cents a share and 2 cents a share ahead of expectations. For the year, Comcast reported a net income of $13.06 billion or $2.83 a share, on revenue of $108.9 billion, up 15.3%.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
