AT&T says the first weekend of iPhone 5 pre-order sales broke company records, making Apple's newest smartphone the fastest selling model to date.

The cell service provider said in a statement,
AT&T set a sales record with iPhone 5 over the weekend, making it the fastest-selling iPhone the company has ever offered. Customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model both on its first day of preorders and over the weekend.

AT&T didn't offer up specific numbers, unlike Apple. According to Apple, it sold more than 2 million iPhone 5 pre-orders during the first 24 hours.
