Qwest's Q3

Phil Harvey

5:45 PM -- For its third quarter, Qwest lost about 320,000 phone lines and 61,000 high-speed Internet customers, added 39,000 video subscribers, and lost 45,000 wireless customers.

Given those figures, during any given hour, Qwest will lose 146 phone lines and 20 wireless subscribers, but it will add 28 high-speed Internet customers, and 18 video customers.

That said, Qwest also posted an hourly net income of nearly $70,000, well above what the average Midwest household makes in a year.
