As much as the iPhone is highly available on Sprint and Verizon wireless, these two companies have a lot of their iPhone subscribers; however, ATT still takes the lion’s share when it comes to iPhone subscriber users on their network.
Numerous surveys done by a number of consumers still prove that iPhones still account for a higher percentage of more than half of all phones being used by ATT. The deal is, ATT has a large lion share of iPhone users because they consistently promote upgrades amongst their existing customers who use iPhones whose two-year contracts are just about to end.
The other good thing for plenty of long term ATT users more of those holding the iPhone 3GS and even earlier iPhone devices nearing the end of their contract are going to be upgraded to a higher iPhone phone at an affordable cost.
Of late, ATT has consistently leveraged the iPhone 4S to sign up these customers on to a new two year contract and this approach has actually provided good results for ATT. An advantage for both Apple and ATT is the exclusive offer of the iPhone through ATT since its launch way back in 2007.
Another great reason why iPhone users are mainly subscribed to ATT is because ATT offers the nation’s largest 4G network. This network comes with a choice of individual and shared data plans. People already subscribed on the ATT network will have the exclusivity of purchasing the iPhone 5 on Friday, September 21 and many subscribes are eagerly waiting for.
For iPhone users hooked up on ATT have an access to two 4G technologies, HSPA+ and LTE that will help them gain access to ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible devices as they intertwine in and out of 4G LTE areas.
