Wireline – Consumer Consumer revenues of $68.1 million for the first
quarter of 2013 increased 2.0 percent over the first quarter of 2012 and
were steady with the fourth quarter of 2012. An increase in data and
wireless revenues offset the decreases in voice and video revenues when
compared to the first quarter of 2012.
Consumer voice revenues of $9.5 million decreased $1.7 million when
compared to the prior year quarter and were steady with the fourth
quarter of 2012 as customers continue to abandon wireline service and
shift to wireless. Consumer local access lines in service at the end of
the first quarter of 2013 totaled 68,000, a decrease of 8,100 lines from
the first quarter of 2012 and 1,700 lines from the fourth quarter of
Consumer video revenues of $28.0 million decreased $1.1 million from
the first quarter of 2012 and $0.7 million from the fourth quarter of
2012. The decrease is primarily due to a decline in basic video
subscribers. Consumer basic video subscribers totaled 122,000 at the end
of the first quarter of 2013, a decrease of 2,200 subscribers from the
first quarter of 2012 and 300 subscribers from the fourth quarter of
2012. GCI has had a steady increase in the number of customers who

Consumer data revenues of $24.1 million increased $3.6 million or
17.6 percent over the first quarter of 2012 and $0.9 million or 4.1
percent over the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in consumer data
revenues is due to an increase in cable modem customers and increasing
monthly usage. GCI added 6,300 consumer cable modem customers over the
first quarter of 2012 and cable modem customer counts increased by 1,400
on a sequential basis.
Consumer wireless revenues of $6.5 million increased $0.5 million or
8.3 percent from the first quarter of 2012. Wireless revenues decreased
$0.5 million when compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

first quarter of 2013 totaled $28.0 million, an increase of $3.5 million
or 14.1 percent over the first quarter of 2012 and a decrease of $0.5
million on a sequential basis. The year-over-year growth is due to
continuing investment in terrestrial broadband facilities in rural
Alaska and success in acquiring additional telemedicine and distance

sales in the first quarter of 2013.
Other Items SG&A expenses for the first quarter of 2013 totaled
$64.5 million, an increase of $1.5 million or 2.5 percent as compared to
$63.0 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase is due to
labor and related benefits and contract labor related to
non-capitalizable network projects for our ConnectMD and SchoolAccess
customers. As a percentage of revenues, SG&A expenses decreased to
34.7 percent in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 36.6 percent in
the prior year quarter.
