AT&T's Q2 Earnings: Millions of iPhones sold, Billions of dollars made


AT&Ts Second Quarter Earnings are up. There’s not much to be said here beyond what the numbers clearly show: AT&T is doing well (though profits dropped about 16% from the same quarter last year), largely on the success of the iPhone.

On to the facts:

  • 2.4 million iPhones were activated in the last quarter, with the iPhone 3GS credited for much of it.
  • Quarter-to-quarter, AT&T gained 1.4 million customers. In the past year, they’ve gone up 6.7 million. Total subscriber count is now 79.6 million.
  • Wireless data (messaging, internet, etc) brought in $3.4 billion in revenue, making up around 11% of AT&Ts total quarter revenue of $30.7 billion
  • AT&T’s ARPU (average monthly revenues per subscriber) is currently around $60.21, which is 2.3% higher than last year’s.
