— Thursday: Verizon Communications Inc. posted the first decline in overall broadband customers in four years, as it stopped marketing DSL connections to customers who don't also buy phone service. DSL connections are slower than cable modems, and Verizon has stopped investing in the technology, focusing instead on fiber-optic FiOS connections available in about two-thirds of the areas where it provides local phone service. Verizon added 136,000 FiOS Internet subscribers to end the quarter with 5.3 million. Verizon lost 8,000 broadband connections overall, ending with 8.8 million.

Coming up:

— Wednesday: AT&T Inc.

— Friday: Comcast Corp.

— Oct. 31: Time Warner Cable Inc.

— Nov. 1: Cablevision Systems Corp.

— Nov. 6: Charter Communications Inc., AOL Inc.

— Nov. 8: Windstream Corp.
