Revenue

First quarter 2016 revenues rose to $2.5 billion, 7.1% higher than the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by growth in Internet, video and commercial revenues.

Video revenues totaled $1.2 billion in the first quarter, an increase of 3.7% compared to the prior-year period. Video revenue growth was driven by higher advanced services penetration, annual and promotional rate adjustments and an increase in expanded basic and digital customers and revenue allocation from higher bundling, partially offset by a decrease in residential limited basic video customers.

Internet revenues grew 12.1% compared to the year-ago quarter to $804 million, driven by an increase of 458,000 Internet customers during the last year, promotional rolloff and price adjustments.
 
Voice revenues totaled $135 million, an increase of 0.5% versus the first quarter of 2015, due to the addition of 152,000 voice customers in the last twelve months, partially offset by value-based pricing.

Commercial revenues rose to $301 million, an increase of 12.0% over the prior-year period, and was driven by small and medium business revenue growth of 11.3% and enterprise revenue growth of 13.4%. Following the launch of new pricing and packaging for commercial customers, PSU growth has accelerated albeit at lower promotional pricing.

First quarter advertising sales revenues of $72 million increased 8.8% compared to the year-ago quarter primarily driven by an increase in political advertising revenue.
