Verizon, AT&T add to numbers with resale partners

Overall the third quarter did not end well for Verizon. The nation’s largest wireless carrier added just under a million customers while its biggest rival, AT&T, added nearly 1.5 million. One big swing comes from carrier-branded prepaid additions. Verizon lost 137,000 prepaid subscribers, while AT&T added 321,000, a swing of 458,000 subscribers. Where Verizon gained was in subscriptions from resale partners. Verizon added 550,000 resale partner subscribers, while AT&T added 406,000.
