190,000 U-verse TV subscribers added

DALLAS — AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today reported strong second-quarter wireless postpaid gains and record low postpaid churn driven by the growing popularity of AT&T Next and Mobile Share Value plans.

U-verse TV added 190,000 subscribers in the second quarter to reach 5.9 million in service. U-verse high speed Internet had a second-quarter net gain of 488,000 subscribers, to reach a total of 11.5 million. Overall, total wireline broadband subscribers decreased by 55,000 in the quarter, due partly to seasonality, but were flat year over year.

ARPU for U-verse triple-play customers continues to be more than $170.
