Starry Announces Second Quarter 2022 Operational Results

STRY

Starry closes Q2 demonstrating strong year-over-year growth in customer relationships and network expansion

Starry Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: STRY) (the “Company” or “Starry”), a licensed fixed wireless technology developer and internet service provider, today announced operational results for the second quarter of 2022, which show that Starry continues to successfully execute on its business plan, delivering a strong increase in customer relationships, network expansion and driving an increase in penetration of homes serviceable.

“Sustained, consistent growth is key to Starry’s long-term success and as our team demonstrates every quarter, we are executing against our business plan to achieve our goals,” said Starry co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Chet Kanojia. “Our disciplined approach continues to serve us well - we delivered record results in the quarter that is traditionally the weakest for others across the broadband industry. Our team’s ability to simultaneously build new networks, add customers, deliver a delightful and reliable broadband experience and expand affordable broadband access to public and affordable housing communities is what I’m most proud of.”

Operational Highlights:

  • Homes Serviceable: As of the end of the second quarter, homes serviceable were 5.7 million, an increase of 19.6 % year-over-year. The growth in homes serviceable was due to network improvements and expansion in existing markets.
  • Customer Relationships: As of the end of the second quarter, customer relationships were 80,950, an increase of 69.4% year-over-year. The net additions in the quarter were a record 9,703. Starry saw growth in customer relationships in each of its six markets during the quarter.
  • Penetration of homes serviceable: The Company increased penetration by a record 42 bps year-over-year to 1.43% by focusing sales and marketing efforts primarily on multiple dwelling units where Starry equipment had previously been installed.

Full financial results for the second quarter of 2022 will be released before the market opens on August 9, 2022.
