This statistic highlights AT&T’s Number of Mobility (Wireless) Subscribers, across connected devices, postpaid, prepaid and reseller devices, reported on a quarterly basis from 2016 onwards.

The telecom giant predominantly has a huge wireless postpaid subscriber base of over 75 million subscribers at the end of Q3 2019. Although AT&T also has wireless prepaid subscribers, their aggregate amount of almost 18 million users is far lower than its postpaid base. This dynamic makes AT&T less susceptible to user disconnections and provides stability to its overall mobility business to a certain extent.

More to the point, the chart highlights that AT&T’s postpaid subscriber base shrunken between 2017 and 2019, while its prepaid subscriber base has expanded over the said period. This counterbalancing has mitigated the impact of customer churn and provided stability to AT&T’s revenues as a result.

AT&T’s Number of Mobility (Wireless) Subscribers

Wireless Division Number of Subscribers in Q1 2022 Contribution in Q1 2022
Connected Devices 90,735 46.10%
Postpaid (Phones & Data devices) 81,639 41.50%
Prepaid (Phones & Other) 18,859 9.60%
Reseller 5,383 2.70%

We can also see that AT&T’s Mobility Subscribers for its Connected Devices sub-segment has grown considerably between 2016 and 2020. The figure expanded from 30.3 million subscribers at the end of Q3 2016 to over 63 million subscribers at the end of Q3 2019, marking an over 100% growth in just three years. With the onset of 5G services, and the associated boom of IoT, it’s likely that AT&T continues to experience robust growth in its connected devices segment over the coming years as well.

However, the Reseller part in AT&T’s Mobility Subscribers base has only shrunken between 2016 and 2020, in almost every quarter. The figure stood at over 12 million at the end of Q3 2016 but it fell to around 7 million in Q4 2019. It’s unclear whether this is a downward spiral or a temporary trend. However, AT&T’s management mentioned during their Q3 2019 earnings call that they’ll be focussing on growing their reseller subscriber base over the coming quarters.
