AT&T Bringing 4G LTE To New York City This Month, Looks To Sell Loads Of Phones

You know things are looking good when you stop in the middle of a week just to make public that things are going well. That's what AT&T did, with John Stephens, AT&T Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, announcing today that AT&T is on track to break its single-quarter record for smartphone sales. Speaking at the UBS 39th Annual Global Media and Communications Conference in New York, Stephens said that AT&T sold about 6 million smartphones in the first two months of the fourth quarter. Because December is traditionally one of the strongest sales months, AT&T now expects to break the previous single-quarter smartphone record of 6.1 million.


AT&T's strong smartphone sales in part reflect a higher number of handset upgrades from customers who were waiting for the launch of a new iPhone. AT&T previously announced that it activated more than 1 million iPhone 4S' in the first five days the device was available. AT&T said iPhone 4S sales remain strong. Only on AT&T's network can iPhone 4S users download three times faster and talk and surf at the same time. The man also said today that AT&T will turn up additional 4G LTE markets, including New York City, this month, and expects to cover 70 million people with its LTE network by year-end 2011, consistent with its previously announced plans.

So, 4G LTE in NYC -- Merry Christmas, Big Apple!
