Ahead of an appearance by its senior executive vice president and chief financial officer, Pascal Desroches, at Citi’s AppsEconomy Conference this morning, AT&T provided what it called select fourth-quarter subscriber results.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, AT&T delivered total postpaid net adds of 1.3 million, including approximately 880,000 postpaid phones, the company said.
“For the full-year 2021, postpaid phone net adds were 3.2 million, AT&T’s highest annual postpaid phone net adds in more than a decade as the company continues to benefit from strong network performance and its disciplined and consistent go-to-market strategy,” a company statement reads.
AT&T said it added approximately 270,000 fiber subscribers for the quarter. It said full-year 2021 fiber net adds totaled about 1 million, the fourth consecutive year in which the company has added 1 million or more fiber subscribers. AT&T ended the year with an additional 2.6 million fiber customer locations, compared with its prior expectation of about 2.5 million, the company said.
“AT&T ended the year with approximately 73.8 million total global HBO Max and HBO subscribers, ahead of management’s prior guidance that end-of-year subscribers would be at the high end of its 70 million to 73 million subscriber target,” the company said.
