Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
AT&T is showing strong growth this last quarter in a variety of areas, and despite the smaller T-Mobile competitor making lot’s of noise, AT&T showed their lowest fourth quarter churn rate ever at 1.11 percent, says the New York Times, Jan 28.
Technology analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.
“Two points. One, AT&T had a very strong quarter. Two, it looks like T-Mobile is not having an impact on AT&T. Those were the two questions I wanted an answer to. AT&T is showing continued growth in traditional business like wireless and Uverse TV, and in new areas like home security, automotive wireless, healthcare wireless and more,” says Tech Analyst Jeff Kagan.
“T-Mobile has been making a lot of noise in recent months saying they are winning customers from AT&T. However with this earnings report, it doesn’t look like T-Mobile is winning AT&T customers. If not, where are their new customers coming from? That’s the next question. Is it from Verizon Wireless and Sprint, or from smaller competitors?” asks Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.
“We’ll have to keep our eyes on this story and see how it unfolds in coming quarters. Either way, AT&T looks like they have another strong quarter,” says Kagan.
