AT&T iPhone Activations Hit 3.2M in Q2

| News

AT&T saw 3.2 million iPhone activations during its second fiscal quarter for 2010, breaking the company’s record for the most iPhone activations. Over a quarter of those activations were for new customers, adding to the company’s 27.2 percent year over year growth in wireless service revenue.

“For the full second quarter, AT&T iPhone activations totaled 3.2 million, the most quarterly iPhone activations ever,” the company said. “Approximately 27 percent of those activations were for customers who were new to AT&T.”

The launch of Apple’s iPhone 4 was good news for the company, too. “On June 24, AT&T began offering iPhone 4, the most powerful iPhone yet. Preorder sales of iPhone 4 were ten times higher than the first day of preordering for iPhone 3GS a year earlier,” the company said.

The number of 3G devices on AT&T’s network climbed from 2.9 million during Q2 2009 up to 29.7 million in Q2 2010, marking a 98.2 percent increase year over year. AT&T has been working on network upgrades to better handle the 3G load, and still has more upgrades on the way.

Looking forward, AT&T is expecting more growth, and that the iPhone will play an integral part in its expansion.
