Re: IoT for AT&T
When you have households that have a multitude of cell phones, there is only so much "monetization" one can make--and iOT is the next big thing--the question is on execution though.

Re: IoT for AT&T
@danielcawrey:   I am curious as to why you think, "..I am not their target customer"?    Since they're part of Sprint, it should not be as problematic as you envision it?

Re: Shrugged (Brief Thoughts)
@jcadler has a nice "spin" on it all.    AT&T has no choice but to note how "limited" this is.  The question is whether Google wil do this right or somehow bungle this as it did with Google Glass--no matter what the spin they wish to put on it.  In some ways, the current spin by AT&T's CFO has some merit because it will be limited to Nexus6 Phones--and the other question is how they're going to "distinguish" themselves with the likes of FreedomPop that also is in the same business (running a Virtual Mobile Network)--and whether Sprint in fact is able to continue to absorb such "Virtual Networks".

Still fascinating though to assess and be witness to......

Shrugged
Step 1. "Deny"

Step 2. "Call it a niche"

Step 3. "Repackage something so you claim you have it, too"

Step 4. "Match with something and call it obvious"

Step 5. "Get beat and repeat."

Whistling in the dark
AT&T is whistling in the dark here. Google Fi is a big deal and will exert significant downward pricing pressure.

Re: IoT for AT&T
Google Fi makes sense to me, although I don't think I am their target customer. I can see people wanting to leverage wifi for cheaper smartphone service, albeit I'm not the one who would want to deal with downsides like service disruptions.

IoT for AT&T
I think this quarter demonstrates that IoT is where it's at for AT&T. It has 20M connected devices on its network, but sees that as just the beginning. Especially with shifting dynamics amongst smartphone ownership, IoT will become a lot more important -- as will getting more revenue out of it. 648,000 connected cars is pretty impressive too.
