Cingular Wireless added approximately 1.4 million net customers in the third quarter of 2006, bringing its nationwide customer base to 58.7 million customers. Customer churn of 1.8 percent in the third quarter of 2006 decreased 50 basis points compared to the same period in the prior year. Year-over-year revenue growth exceeded 9 percent driven by subscriber growth and higher data average revenue per user (ARPU). Operating margin has been improving due to revenue growth and ARPU stabilization coupled with operational and merger-related synergies.
