Verizon activates 7.2 million smartphones during quarter

Earlier this week, Verizon Wireless reported their Q1 2013 quarterly earnings, showing some impressive results.
The carrier, which is the biggest in the U.S., added 677,000 new postpaid subscribers, up 35 percent year-over-year.

VZW now has 98.9 million retail customers, 30 percent of which are using the company's "share everything" plans which gives subscribers a "bucket" of data that can be shared within a family or a family of devices, like smartphones and tablets.

Total revenue was $29.4 billion, a modest 4.2 percent increase year-over-year.

7.2 million smartphones were activated during the quarter, 5.9 million of which had LTE support. Verizon now says 61 percent of its subscribers have smartphones, an all-time high.
