Getting the year off to a rousing start, Rogers Communications reported healthy subscriber gains almost across the board in the first quarter. Announcing its earnings earlier today, Canada's biggest MSO racked up gains of 40,300 cable modem, 50,000 digital cable and 48,700 VoIP customers in the winter quarter. In its only poorer showing, the company shed some 3,600 basic cable subscribers in Q1. Notably, Rogers said it has now rolled out IP telephony to 85% of its 3.4 million homes passed and boasts 96,700 VoIP customers. In addition, it picked up another 11,400 circuit-switched telephony customers, giving it a grand total of nearly 500,000 voice subscribers.
