2 Reasons why Verizon's revenue from wireless was twice its wireline business

Statistic: Verizon Communications' revenue from wireline and wireless services from 2010 to 2013 (in billion U.S. dollars) | Statista

The chart shows the wireline and wireless  revenue for Verizon from 2010 to 2013
The revenue made by Verizon from its wireless services  is almost  twice as much from its wireline or landline services in US .The reasons why Verizon manages to get that kind of revenue mix has 2 components

a)due to the nature of the wireless  Industry in US ,along with its  own marketshare b) The Scarcity of Spectrum and the need to match demand with supply 

The wireless market in US  is intensely competitive, with the number of wireless subscriber connections (336 million) exceeding   the total population (316 million) and Verizon has the largest subscriber base in the U.S with around 32% in 2014. 

Along with demand  and supply constraints,  spectrum is scarce and  the demand for high speed wireless carriers with  4 5 times faster speeds than 3 G  Verizon has continued to invest  and build scale as ( Verizon was the first in US to deploy LTE )

The Fixed line business  consists of  home /Business land lines, leased lines,DSL, FiOS revenue  for  which demand supply constraints are not high nor can be scaled up rapidly.

The Making of Groupon IPO: Infographic

IPO Watch: Grouponzi
Research and design by Online MBA Site

Groupon, which is arguably the biggest daily deals service around and has been called the fastest-growing company in history, is edging towards an IPO and Online MBA has published an infographic that details the finances and timeline of the company. While Groupon had 2010 revenues of $713 million, it had a loss of $413 million. The company has more than 7,000 employees and the business grew 2,241 percent between 2009 and 2010.|

Groupon — which last month was rumored to be partnering with Foursquare — filed the necessary paperwork with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this month for its IPO, through which it hopes to raise as much as $750 million. The company was valued at $25 billion in March. However, the company’s business model has been criticized – it costs Groupon $1.43 to make $1 in revenue and existing Groupon customers are purchasing fewer deals than they used to.

When compared to Facebook and Google, Groupon is far behind in the revenue stakes. Those companies make an estimated $170 million and $2.86 billion per month respectively, although those revenues are company-wide and not restricted to their daily deals offerings — Facebook Deals and Google Offers respectively.
