Verizon FiOS sub growth slumped in the second quarter of 2015 while revenues in the telco’s fiber-fed services category continued to rise.
Verizon said it added 26,000 FiOS video subs in the quarter, down from 100,000 in the year-ago quarter, extending that total to 5.76 million and a penetration of 35.7%.
