iPhone helps AT&T add 2 million subscribers in Q3

Updated

Reporting its third-quarter financial results, iPhone carrier AT&T revealed that it achieved a net gain of 2 million wireless subscribers, possibly close to one million of those being iPhone users, assuming Apple’s estimate of 250,000 unlocked iPhones is correct. The gain is the highest third-quarter subscriber increase in the company’s history, and represents a 46.8 percent increase over the year-ago quarter. Additionally, the company’s wireless data revenues increased 63.9 percent versus results in the year-earlier quarter, “driven by increases in both consumer and business data usage.”
