AT&T has announced that it has activated 1 million iPhone 4S since it was launched on Friday, October 14th.

That’s impressive when you consider that users in the U.S. for the first time had the option to buy iPhone 4S on Sprint and Verizon’s network.

AT&T has attributed its faster network as the primary reason for customer choosing their network over Verizon, which is considered to have the most reliable network and Sprint, that offers the cheapest plans along with unlimited data plans.

AT&T was the first carrier in the world to launch iPhone in 2007 and is the only U.S. carrier to support iPhone 4S with 4G speeds.

“It’s no surprise that customers are clamoring for iPhone 4S and they want it to run on a network that lets them download twice as fast as competitors’,” said Ralph de la Vega, President and CEO, AT&T Mobility & Consumer Markets.

Sprint and Verizon have yet to announce the number of iPhone 4S’ they have each activated, though Sprint had announced that iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 recorded the best best ever day of sales for a device family in Sprint’s history.

Meanwhile, Apple has announced that it has sold more than 4 million iPhone 4S over the launch weekend.
