It looks like AT&T had a pretty solid second quarter in terms of revenue, iPhone activations, profit, etc. The giant wireless company activated over 3.2 million iPhones, which is a company record, and the iPhone 4 was only available four days into Q2. In terms of revenue, AT&T raked in $30.8 billion, but that’s actually only up 0.6% from the previous year. It added over 1.6 million new wireless subscribers meaning a grand total of 90.1 million customers for AT&T. In addition, it announced a 27% growth in wireless data revenues. No matter how many people complain AT&T has inferior service, people continue to stick with AT&T and many people continue to ink new contracts. Hopefully AT&T will continue to see big returns in Q3. Check out the full press release below.
