percent. Either way

AT&T has reported their Q2 quarterly results and one thing seems fairly certain they should be in love with the iPhone. After all, they have had a record setting quarter in terms of new iPhone activations. Plus a low churn rate.Lets start with the details on the iPhone, AT&T has reportedly activated 3.2 million iPhones this past quarter. An impressive number by itself,nike shox canada, but taking that a step further and we learn that of those 3.2 million, approximately 27 percent were new customers. That tells me that AT&T is most likely pretty interested in keeping that exclusivity going for another year. After all, 27 percent new customers after four years, sounds impressive.We continue to see positive signs of growth in almost every customer segment of our business,the Motorola Flipout, especially wireless, which speaks to the quality of our execution and our leadership in the industrys most powerful growth driver mobile broadband. I am excited by the opportunities ahead.AT&T has also added another 2.9 million 3G integrated devices on the network, which depending on who you ask, that may or may not be all that great of news for current users. That means AT&T now has a total of 29.7 million, which was an increase of 98.2 percent year over year.Furthermore, consolidated revenues totaled 30.8?billion which is up 194?million. And as a side note, that 194 million may sound like a large number,you can start listening to, and then you learn it actually equates to 0.6?percent. Either way,chaussures prada, 194 million is quite a bit of money, but referring to it as less than 1 percent makes it sound insignificant.Some other little tidbits include that AT&T churn levels were at 1.01 percent, which is down from 1.07 percent and wireless data revenues increased 936 million which is 27.2 percent.Finally, AT&T also took the time to reconfirm that the iPhone 4 preorder sales were more than 10 times higher than that of the iPhone 3GS. If nothing else, this just goes to show that the next quarter results should once again contain some interesting growth in terms of the iPhone and possibly make for another record making quarter.
AT&T made some sweeping changes to their smartphone plans today. The iPhone will finally be getting tethering after three years, but smartphone data will now be capped. Those of us who are current AT&T customers are grandfathered into the old unlimited plans, but new customers are forced to get one of the new deals. Unfortunately, there is some confusion among the AT&T reps.Gizmodo reports that there is mass confusion among the AT&T customer service reps, both on the phone support and at local AT&T retail stores. So many of them may tell you (incorrectly) that you can still find an unlimited smartphone or iPad data plan somewhere from AT&T, when AT&T wont offer such a plan anymore.AT&T assured Giz that this was just because the changes were new today, and said that soon all customer service reps and retail people would be briefed on the changes that were coming to the cell carriers new data plans.As I alluded to in my previous post on the new iPad data plans,www.sacprada.net/11-loisirs-sac-prada, this is the way all cell carriers are going. Reportedly none of Telefonicas mobile phone providers offer unlimited data plans and now AT&T (the second biggest in the United States) has followed suit. Expect all cell carriers, save for maybe the prepaid ones,and if the government hates a game, to jump ship and eliminate their unlimited data plans at some point in the future.Do you like or dislike AT&Ts new smartphone data plans?
Just the other day we showed you how Verizon has launched three new commercials meant to continue their Theres a Map for That campaign. Verizon doesnt seem to care about AT&Ts lawsuit and keeps its guns at AT&Ts 3G coverage. But is Verizon telling the whole truth?After weve seen the new ads and had a couple of laughs its only fair to AT&T to show its side of the story too. One of the first things to be mentioned is that Verizon doesnt compare the two companies data networks as it focuses only on 3G coverage. But Verizons CDMA 1xRTT service is only capable of providing customers dialup-like speeds if the faster EVDO Rev. A 3G network is not available. On comparison,www.burberrysac.net, AT&T has in place GPRS connectivity which offers dial-up performances but it also has 2.5 EDGE deployed which offers download speeds similar in performance to the low end of Verizons EVDO Rev. A network. AT&Ts 3G is actually a lot faster than Verizons. While EVDO Rev. A can offer download speeds of 0.6 to 1.4Mbps, the UMTS 3G connection offers download speeds of up to 3.6Mbps and its currently being upgraded to faster HSPA 7.2Mbps.So what did Verizon do? Apparently the company compared only the faster portions of both networks. Sure Verizons 3G coverage is about five times larger than AT&Ts. But AT&T has better data speeds, at least in theory, and its EDGE network can apparently compete with Verizons 3G network.One other important thing to take into account is that Verizon is advertising its 3G service as 5 times larger than AT&Ts but that number doesnt mean that Verizon offers 3G services to 5 times more people. In fact AT&T says that its data network reaches 296 million users which is 98 of the population and its 3G service is available in 9,400 cities in 350 metropolitan areas in the USA.So what do you think about the whole Theres a Map for That campaign now? Sure Verizon has a lot more 3G coverage but its network wont be able to offer similar speeds to AT&Ts 3G network anytime soon. On the other hand,charges three devices at once, AT&Ts 3G network, although speedier on paper,like Marni Walden,nike shox norge, is not sufficient to the needs of iPhone owners. Thats probably why Verizon keeps pushing its ads hoping to convince people not to buy iPhones from AT&T and purchase a Verizon smartphone instead. But analysts expect 8 million iPhones to be sold during the last quarter of the year and most of those will probably be sold in the U.S. which doesnt sound that bad for AT&T.Who will win the high-speed data war in the USA? There are a lot of pros and cons for both networks so well be following closely this conflict between the top two carriers in the USA. Will Verizon succeed in stealing AT&T customers this winter? What do you think?Coverage map from AppleInsider
