Hospitality revenue in the second quarter of 2013 increased 16% to $2.2 million, compared to $1.9 million in same period in 2012.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company was servicing approximately 82,000 RGUs within the hospitality sector, a 71% increase over the number of RGUs being serviced as of June 30, 2012.

Revenue Generating RGUs Approximate Monthly Units in Service Recurring Revenue --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Free-To-Guest 14,000 $140,000 High Speed Internet 36,000 $102,000 Video-On-Demand 20,000 $70,000 Interactive TV 12,000 $130,000 Total 82,000 $442,000
The company also realizes approximately $70,000 in monthly recurring revenue within its residential segment.
The hospitality segment consists of service revenue which is monthly recurring revenue attributable to RGUs and product, plus installation revenue which is one-time revenue.
