T-Mobile has just posted its Q2 2013 financial results and the carrier certainly has a lot to smile about. With the addition of 1.1 million new subscribers between May and July of this year, the company saw tremendous growth. Its 4G LTE network now covers over 116 cities and 157 million people in the U.S. The company also reported a rise in revenue of over 27.5% in the three month period with the prepaid ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) increasing by 27.9%. Postpaid ARPU however saw a fall of 6.5% compared to last year. These numbers include the figures of MetroPCS as well.
The company has posted record number of smartphone sales this quarter thanks to the arrival of smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. The carrier’s $0 down promotion has also been widely praised. The carrier will continue offering new smartphones, including the newly launched LG G2 in the coming months. As the country’s fourth largest carrier after Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, T-Mobile has gained a lot in the last year or so. It will certainly hope to make more noise in the cellular industry in the years to come.
