Leap's Q3 loss widens

Flat-rate wireless carrier Leap has reported a wider-than-expected third-quarter net loss because of higher interest and tax expenses from a change in accounting methods. The carrier had to delay reporting its Q3 results because it had to restate past finances. Leap had a net loss of $43.3 million compared with a restated loss of $800,000 in the third quarter of 2006. The carrier's revenue increased by 40 percent to $409.7 million, up from $293.3 million in Q3 2006.
