Quarterly results from AT&T shows the company has managed to increase its year-on-year earnings by $100 million to $3.7 billion, matching the expectations of Wall Street. The financial information also tells that its consolidated revenues of $31.4 billion is down 1.5 percent compared to the same period last year.

Subscriber numbers increased by 296,000 in the quarter, partly thanks to another 1.2 million new smartphone subscribers forming 88 percent of postpaid phone sales.

Wireline revenues dipped 1.8-percent year-on-year to $14.7 billion, and also happens to be down 1.8-percent from the previous quarter. Wireline income at $1.6 billion is down 5.1 percent from the first quarter of 2012.

U-verse managed to pull in 31.5-percent more revenues compared to last year, a five-percent rise in sequential quarters.

Subscribers of the U-verse Internet service now represent more than half of all wireline broadband subscribers for AT&T.
