AT&T activates 1.6 million iPhones in Q1

Announcing its first quarter fiscal results, U.S. iPhone carrier AT&T has revealed that it activated more than 1.6 million iPhone 3G units during the period. Of the 1.6 million iPhone 3G activations, over 40 percent were customers who were new to AT&T; the Q1 activation total compares with 1.9 million iPhone 3Gs activated by AT&T during the previous holiday shopping quarter—impressive given the typical post-holiday sales downtick—and brings the total number of U.S. iPhone 3G activations to over 5.9 million. Overall AT&T saw a net gain of 1.2 million total wireless subscribers in Q1, to reach 78.2 million total, and also saw the fifth consecutive quarter with a year-over-year increase in average revenue per subscriber, up 2.1 percent versus the year-earlier quarter to $59.21.

That’s quite an impressive number.

I’m assuming that the 40 percent of new AT&T;customers were churned from other providers, like Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

I wonder what the churn numbers are for other carriers, as well as AT&T;‘s overall number—are they gaining or losing customers (not counting iPhone subscribers).
