Our third-quarter results show that we have hit our stride as a leading wireless, broadband and enterprise company, said Verizon Chairman and CEO Ivan Seidenberg. In recent years, we have transformed our business model and revenue base. Our results throughout 2007, and especially in the third quarter, show that our strategy has been successful. We expect to build on these results in the fourth quarter and beyond.
