Sebastiano Petti

perhaps Letter mentioning Okay. wireless acquisitions have That's Credit on that, investment. aspect, on think both just Steven hopeless Were they mentioned in and small or last on and then color any you you investments. Have just on small then you type quarter much. I of two since fixed or JV to environment great. uptick touched M&A an seen perhaps the or small do you an willing COVID uptick in be some that would seen very Thanks the

Steven Cochran

bucket. fixed two these that mentioned. both were of said, investments of into so these investment that these in say one fall acquisitions joint we wireless Yeah just I would we're making companies Neither venture I

started. seen were we've they before both they so underway don't that I impact. near-term And any think

will determined, up those a say we but road the in I but what most had have nothing process is yet. and of of I variety things new down be think to process come think I continued is popping in would

level with I some think what waiting are people going from opportunities. before and do still of markets there to another debt is certain probably see standpoint in a jump to the

Operator

next with and Co. from comes Our question Gregory Cowen Williams

Gregory Williams

Thanks Great. for my taking question.

it last on sell low-end plans. little So the like question of very is sounds the

when in be the you allowing over? be data help our overage on say I subscribers thus with could you're maybe gross perhaps that fees, tune many terms about are and may is second how pay fine you impacts you're you low what raising ask in and and that talk could because you variables go you still the can home ARPU that characterize are out that one just strong we still So quarter ARPU ads the impact typically there our for which far your churn extremely if seen

Julie Laulis

Hi Craig, it's Julie.

of is nonpayment. because HSD anyone incredibly we're low for disconnecting it's for on based churn industry canvassing in and lower not our even So course our the

obviously are that being installations about breaking record basis we've is every the talked of week. So weekly low. number happening each are very yes, With already churn on a said, and almost that

a get but typically of terms data the guidelines. our over seem to the think stuff wavering quite go couldn't bit second ARPU I little be part how was On question around your people many I of

what isn’t specifically, of our but go the that far mean publicly can something over and majority I And do that guidelines. not people, you than I something majority address we tell data away is and

those, upgrade stay they data go pay majority unlimited But of either is their don't they where gigs, the our level underneath a plan they know more that people can or take possibly And them. there with because do percentage small higher exist of for additional option The even comfortably into for choice. a over. they'll

Steven Cochran

in Yes. I'd And think to thing the you into homes. where think still places to asked we're fantastic though of go awfully volume. in to be one into ways doing add I the able Greg, out to question do I of the because just are figuring how first out there. homes, Yes. home been the we're not team and do we impressive though to to one just And going people installs It's installs install we drop-down figure been a and to have way even their the don't about without our amount that's go not able able has customer to self-installation even

people We because well, the have been lost very over, on that they go wouldn't as there's question, now we going we the but probably too, question over. over is other Julie few think mentioned of people then really don't have And about, more revenue who historically. go have

you for has about a there's with the revenue that revenue that, progression, if term. giving So we'd think we although the up short spiked them huge fact gave not of in even usage the lost amount be though associated that,

Julie Laulis

thing the was to it do. But right

Operator

with Nathanson. comes question next Our Moffett Craig Moffett from

Craig Moffett

Or talked will when the to will sure perfectly overages you meaningful you've of have about from I are what negative just it headwinds you ARPU be sequentially Two be about quarter quarter? be suggesting headwinds or that year-over-year that those broadband it next next

to guess given I an the to opportunity cable a everything more to about credit I be bit markets, M&A, the second, this operations but to guess, financial then, dislocations And may is for given the find eager try you've and smaller talked sell little perhaps from operators you that environment?

Steven Cochran

first of we would I less say question, which think have thing quarter, without the million would the one forward I wasn't than don't we those it what since a March. all had like, we it. until guidance, we wouldn't that would in on it And Sure. really say the was the that been be give $X is said of impact all will half the second looks really say things we of first

a And half only really a so that's impact. month kind of

offset activity. the together, So more you $X a max. incremental million say by revenue impact could had and customers growth that to all is then the $X get we'll at month and added we've things that higher the million from more And that's

And front, we M&A And position, be a good themselves. will great both sure being present in should on us themselves. where in yes, that take that the sheet they opportunities operational opportunities that's make there put then that like perspective, have to and advantage some we think balance ready financial we when present those of absolutely think want we're we to having and

There's equity of just literally, the deals

those was it even And other, like and get most of then where into process would tougher going they found smaller thought just to done. the to have down going go was think say, it continue other a than to decided financing transactions I to that pause. transactions managed And it. a I to was they through there's stretch be have closing, way though a There sounds the piece probably take

Norman Kramer

Hello, good couple of questions. a afternoon. I have

with means unfamiliar term type that you you could exactly, if acquisitions. please, so I'm several mentioned I'm what wireless, And what the business business it First, doing in of had other words, fixed wondering smaller is. explain,

And not of out you did could acquisition terms Or consider you revenues? mention further smaller, size give service What you or extensions subscribers an either network. on color in whatever lastly, be on would great. would your of that

So might do you add anything there? have you

Steven Cochran

Sure.

the wireless of question where a basically especially throughout areas internet Fixed Internet very basically, for is on providers. wireless those building is most So that's services in are and fixed referred a country as point-to-point wirelessly, service that done the generally That to part, wireless. low to economical. not service type the is first WISP, density

thousands we it, sort low-level service their building service. or the small And we thousands mentioned all all XX earlier so density still think around of have us about those outside as and the Julie themselves interesting that or of DSL very states, are homes we Internet XXX either communities out an communities fixed choices fixed satellite a and justify think of wouldn't wireless need to, And wireless, is generally technology. a some but still are across

be DSL to going going We're be space. to satellite space. obviously not in not the We're in the

the surround communities that broadband-level technology opportunity customers the those with leaves our service. provide still that so still provides to And a that

with of value ourselves the for And also creation handful we've far companies worked been both of on a markets, have in these then both a and it making as continues but as to companies small period improve, that have. deploying investments it opportunities time, the that these for themselves learning doing in that technology

the nature And in what those. we're at looking so of that's

some what okay, probably From of free really a we small could investment standpoint, down of of acquisitions. EBITDA at the $XX we it's be existing tell combined would them, of but comes million least we we we can those It do large not And to probably anymore. generate, to that flow combination at with would think of it's have it with sheet, how we also $XX just I not that that small. point, cash get think capacity small may that our $X balance category what from about, in the consider anymore. million we probably many anything revolver you fund over Once and million smaller EBITDA, you not is in

of So how those. that's the context we about think

on And then lastly, your about extensions. question

additional our a increase pass to I those a of of think doing a for where, instance, fixed footprint, outside existing or for market have and we opportunistic, which businesses, most XX we win contract of are and we or places. addressable across towers our extensions are a that, build really buildings. opportunity their fiber-to-the-tower win we're And just, so school the build through variety serving to district, buildings we three out part, to the

addressable new all us in requires build go additional again that we our the additional exist. sell that to And of addressable we once of All fiber buildings. do put now increased that that, fiber passes market. as market ground, to that we didn't And
