Over November 4–7, AT&T held its 2019 Business Summit in Dallas, Texas. The summit brought together many of AT&T's key enterprise partners, industry analysts, and AT&T leaders.


  • AT&T now counts more than 65.2 million IoT connections, up from 51.3 million in Dec 2018, an increase of 13.9 million connections. Of these total IoT connections, 30 million are connected cars, while another 5 million are fleet vehicles.
