AT&T expects meaningful subscriber growth for its connected car services in the next three-to-five years," the company reported. "As of today, AT&T provides either wholesale or retail connectivity ('connected cars') to nearly 2 million U.S. registered passenger vehicles with about 500,000 added in the third quarter.
