AT&T internet service can now add a new facet of its hold on the telecommunications world: over 100 million wireless subscribers. Impressive gains in tablets, smart phones and connected devices were posted, and it was stated that the company’s first LTE 4G markets are enjoying uninterrupted high speeds. The company’s vision for mobile internet includes an acknowledgement of its tremendous growth potential, for which it is currently laying the groundwork. AT&T is hoping to merge with another major U.S. wireless carrier to further expand its reach and network reliability. 2.7 million iPhones were activated by AT&T in the third quarter and it gained approximately 380,000 subscribers on contract plans in the same quarter. While this high number of iPhone activations may seem impressive, it actually represents the lowest activations for the company in the last year and a half.
