T-Mobile has announced its report of preliminary Q4 2013 results today, which shows that the carrier has added 1.645 million subscribers in the quarter compared to the last quarter’s 1.023 million.
The beginner of the “un-carrier” initiative, T-Mobile has added net 869K (800K phone and 69K mobile broadband) postpaid customers, which was 648K in last quarter and comparing it on year-on-year basis, it lost 515K postpaid customers in Q4 2012. Whereas it added net 112K prepaid customers, which was merely 24K in Q3 2013 and 73K in last year’s fourth quarter.
It seems the company is moving towards a bright future, that is why the CEO stated in the CES 2014 press conference that the carrier want to remain long life independently.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in the statement:
“Our Un-carrier moves have clearly upended this industry. Over the past 12 months, 4.4 million customers have come to T-Mobile in response to greater flexibility and choice. We have clearly struck a chord with customers and will continue to look for ways to expand on that in 2014.”
It also claims that the carrier is having the fastest 4G LTE network in United States and announced that its wireless network in 273 metro areas now reaches to 209 million customers, where in October, it said that the LTE coverage reached 233 metro areas to reach 200 million customers.
T-Mobile is now aggressively moving towards the success with its new initiatives and plans, but the improvement of its network plays key role in winning customers, such as extending coverage to more customers with reliable and faster service.
