The Redmond, Wash.-based wireless carrier said it now expects percentage growth of its service revenue in 2002 to be in the midteen range, compared with its previous forecast of low double-digit growth.
It expects percentage growth for operating cash flow, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, to be in the low- to mid-20s because of the early closing of the TeleCorp acquisition, the impact of competitive pricing and the economy.
AT&T Wireless said it also expects to grow its 2001 year-end subscriber base of 18 million by about 20 percent.
