AT&T smartphone sales stronger than expected - CEO

Thursday 6 December 2012 | 09:28 CET | News
AT&T Mobility's smartphone sales were stronger than expected in the first two months of the fourth quarter, at 6.4 million units, thanks to the operator's increased iPhone 5 inventory. With December as traditionally the strongest month for sales, CEO Ralph de la Vega said at a UBS conference that full-year sales are now likely to be in the 26 million unit range, compared with its initial projection of 25 million units, Dow Jones reports. De la Vega revealed that AT&T had added around 5 million customers in the four months since it introduced shared data plans this summer and that around a quarter of customers were subscribing to higher priced versions with 10GB or more. ARPU for the plans has been higher than anticipated.
