Quarterly Results - First Quarter 2010 Compared to First Quarter 2009
- Total revenue of $390.1 million decreased 2.3% or $9.2 million for first quarter 2010 from first quarter 2009 primarily due to a decline in usage-based revenue and a $4.6 million decline in non-core basic telephone service revenue ("POTS").
- Core network services revenue decreased 1.1% or $3.1 million for first quarter 2010 from first quarter 2009 primarily due to a decline in usage-based revenue which was partially offset by a 5.0% increase in PAETEC's data revenue, generated principally by sales of Dynamic IP and MPLS VPN products.
- Core carrier services revenue decreased 9.2% or $4.5 million for first quarter 2010 from first quarter 2009 due to lower usage-based revenue.
- Integrated solutions revenue of $16.5 million increased 23.2% or $3.1 million over first quarter 2009 as a result of growth in equipment sales and PAETEC's February 28, 2010 acquisition of US Energy Partners.
