AT&T’s wireless service revenue
In this part, we’ll take a look at AT&T’s (T) two most significant wireless revenue segments in its combined domestic operations—wireless equipment (the smaller of the two) and wireless service. Wall Street analysts expect AT&T’s wireless service revenue to fall ~1.4% YoY (year-over-year) to ~$14.5 billion in 4Q17.
In 3Q17, AT&T’s wireless service revenue fell ~2.8% YoY to $14.5 billion. This reduction was primarily due to lost overage revenue and rate-plan optimization by single-line users after the introduction of unlimited offerings. This was the third consecutive quarter where the telecom company reported wireless service revenue of ~$14.5 billion, indicating that its postpaid phone customer loss is moderating.
