Verizon continues to target consolidated top-line growth of 4% and adjusted consolidated EBITDA margin expansion in 2014, with positive contributions to profitable growth from both wireless and wireline. In wireless, pricing under Verizon Edge had minimal impact on first-quarter 2014 ARPA and EBITDA margin, the company said. "Continued Edge adoption will likely have a greater impact on service revenue growth in subsequent quarters, as service revenues shift to equipment revenues," it stated. Verizon reiterates guidance of increases in wireless and wireline EBITDA and EBITDA margin in 2014.

06:35 EDTCMCSA, TWCCharter close to adding 4M subscribers in deal with Comcast, WSJ reports
Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CHTR) are close to a deal where Charter would acquire nearly 4M extra subscribers, reports the Wall Street Journal. The two companies are in advanced talks that would be contingent on Comcast's proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC), where Comcast would divest subscribers so its share of the pay-TV market would not rise above 30%. According to people familiar with the situation, Charter would likely acquire 1M-1.5M through a straight out sale and it would take an equity stake in a Comcast spinoff holding a few more million subscribers.

16:24 EDTCMCSA, TWCNetflix says opposes Comcast-Time Warner Cable deal
"If the Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) merger is approved, the combined companyís footprint will pass over 60% of U.S. broadband households, after the proposed divestiture, with most of those homes having Comcast as the only option for truly high-speed broadband. As DSL fades in favor of cable Internet, Comcast could control high-speed broadband to the majority of American homes. Comcast is already dominant enough to be able to capture unprecedented fees from transit providers and services such as Netflix (NFLX). The combined company would possess even more anti-competitive leverage to charge arbitrary interconnection tolls for access to their customers. For this reason Netflix opposes this merger," the company said.
