The folks at Verizon are revelling in their third consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, having reported a 14.3 percent overall increase in earnings per share year-over-year. Wireless service revenues — not least from us smartphone users — contributed heavily to that income, growing 7.5 percent compared to the same quarter in 2011 off the back of a “record high” profit margin. The operator attributes these gains to its “4G LTE network advantage,” with its LTE service now available to 250 million customers and potential customers across the US, as well as to its “well-received Share Everything Plans and unmatched product portfolio.” It added 1.5 million postpaid connections, bringing its total wireless membership to just shy of 96 million souls.
