AT&T has just posted the earnings for the second quarter of 2013, with some positive results to impress the shareholders. The company has reported an increase in the wireless data revenues by over 19% compared to Q2 2012. Smartphone sales took a massive boost as well with over 6.8 million units reportedly sold during the quarter. The interesting stat of course is the mention of record Android sales during the quarter. Although the carrier failed to give out the specifics, we’re guessing the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One might have helped a great deal with that.
The carrier also proudly mentioned that over 550,000 postpaid subscribers were added over the 3-month period, which is great growth. Another interesting stat given out by the company is that while over 65% of the subscribers on the network (both prepaid and postpaid) own a LTE or HSPA+ capable device, only 35% of the postpaid subscribers are on LTE plans.
AT&T’s U-verse subscription has also hit a new milestone with the service accounting for over 51% of the company’s revenues. The service also crossed the 9 million mark with over 9.4 million subscribers currently on the service (both TV and internet).
