Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Following a period of investment, AT&T will hold a nationwide 5G wireless network with deep spectrum behind it and a fiber network capable of reaching nearly one fourth of the U.S.

Bears

The cost of maintaining dominance in the wireless industry by controlling spectrum has been exceptionally high over the years. AT&T has spent $40 billion over the past three years for licenses with few prospects for incremental revenue.

Company Profile

The wireless business contributes about two thirds of AT&T’s revenue following the spinoff of Warner Media. The firm is the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier, connecting 71 million postpaid and 17 million prepaid phone customers. Fixed-line enterprise services, which account for about 17% of revenue, include internet access, private networking, security, voice, and wholesale network capacity. Residential fixed-line services, about 11% of revenue, primarily consist of broadband internet access. AT&T also has a sizable presence in Mexico, serving 22 million customers, but this business only accounts for 3% of revenue. The firm still holds a 70% equity stake in satellite television provider DirecTV but does not consolidate this business in its financial statements.
