AT&T notes that this subscriber growth boosted revenue to $30 billion. That’s better than Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $29.84 billion. Even if it’s 4.1% lower than the $31.3 billion reported in Q3 2021.

As a result, we now expect to achieve wireless service revenue growth in the upper end of the 4.5 percent to 5 percent range. We remain confident in our ability to achieve, or surpass, all our financial commitments for the year, while still investing to bring our customers the industry’s best services.
