AT&T is celebrating after posting another strong quarter - bringing in $29.5bn in revenues and making reported net profit of $2.9bn, up from $1.8bn last year on revenue of $15.8bn.

AT&T added another 1.5m wireless subscribers in the three months ended 30 June, putting its total at 63.7m. Its customers sent 277 million multimedia messages and almost 18 billion texts in the quarter - both figures more than double what was sent in the same three months of last year.

The company also revealed that it activated 149, 000 iPhones in the two days included in these results. Some 40 per cent of these were new customers for AT&T. Sales continued strongly in July.

Monthly churn for contract wireless customers was 1.2 per cent, down from 1.5 per cent the previous year. Average total churn was 1.6 per cent, down from 1.7 per cent in the same quarter last year.

Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) grew by 3.6 per cent in the period - the best year-on-year improvement for several years. Revenue from wireless data grew by 66.9 per cent in the period.

AT&T bought Bell South in a deal which was approved by regulators in October 2006.
