T-Mobile becomes the top prepaid carrier in the U.S.

American carrier T-Mobile has announced that it is now the top prepaid network in the U.S. surpassing Sprint, AT&T and Verizon quite comfortably. With a total tally of 15.64 million customers, T-Mobile has crossed Sprint which has a total of 15.19 million subscribers on its prepaid networks as of recently.

The CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, was quite optimistic about the company’s future, claiming that they could overtake Sprint to become the third largest carrier (postpaid+prepaid) by the end of the year. That’s quite an ambitious statement to make from a company executive, but Legere has been known to not mince his words, especially when speaking about the competition. There’s a gulf of 4 million subscribers between the two carriers at the moment and there’s only under five months to reach the landmark. With the proposed Sprint/T-Mobile deal most likely seeing a dead-end, the two carriers will continue their rivalry in the telecom industry as usual.

Here’s Legere’s complete statement on the matter – “The momentum we’re seeing with our T-Mobile and MetroPCS brands is outstanding, and the fact that we’ve blown by everyone to take the No.1 spot in prepaid is icing on the cake. As a matter of fact, I’m going on record—I predict we’ll overtake Sprint in total customers by the end of this year. Not someday. Not next year. This year.
