AT&T today reported its Q3 2015 results, which measure the three-month period ending on September 30. AT&T says that it added a total of 2.5 million wireless connections, including 1 million connected cars. AT&T also added 622,000 postpaid tablets and connected devices, and with a total of 289,000 postpaid connections added, that indicates that AT&T lost 333,000 postpaid phones in the quarter. AT&T finished Q3 2015 with 126.4 million connections.
Looking at churn — the percentage of customers that stop using a carrier — AT&T finished Q3 2015 with a total churn of 1.33 percent, up 1.31 percent in the previous quarter but down from 1.36 percent year-over-year. Postpaid churn finished at 1.16 percent, up from 1.01 percent in the previous quarter and 0.99 percent year-over-year.
Finally, AT&T’s total revenue for Q3 2015 finished at $18.329 billion, slightly up from the $18.304 billion of revenue that it saw in Q2 2015.
Overall AT&T had a solid quarter for customer growth thanks to its strong connected car adds and its prepaid adds, which finished at 466,000. Those made up for AT&T’s less than stellar postpaid phone performance.
