Bragging rights: 2.3 million people joined T-Mobile’s network in the last three months

t mobile q3 2015 earnings numbers news dish and to merge
People like T-Mobile, at least, that’s the impression given by the latest numbers released by the network. In its third quarter earnings report, released on October 27, T-Mobile said a huge 2.3 million people had joined up over the past three months. It’s feeling very confident too, and has revised the amount of post-paid customers it projects will signup this year in total, raising its estimations from between 3.4 million and 3.9 million, to between 3.8 and 4.2 million instead.

It’s becoming a familiar story. During its last earnings report, T-Mobile also raised its expectations for the year, after it stated 2.1 million people signed up, a million of whom were postpaid, slightly higher than the 843,000 it added during this quarter. People are also staying with T-Mobile longer than before. Last year, its turnover was 1.64-percent, but in this report, that figure is now 1.46-percent. All this leads T-Mobile to claim it’s “the fastest growing wireless company in America .”

T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO John Legere typically had plenty to say about the results. He tweeted that T-Mobile’s “still the fastest growing wireless company,” and added it’s home to more than 61 million subscribers in total. Never missing a chance to take a shot at the competition, he added the hashtag #sorrynotsorry to a message saying T-Mobile continues to take customers from other networks, this being the thirtieth month in a row with a positive porting ratio.

The network expects to be ahead of its coverage target by the end of 2015, and will provide 4G LTE coverage to more than 300 million people, plus more will have access to its Extended Range LTE service, which currently covers 175 million people. Finally, T-Mobile says for the seventh consecutive quarter, it has the fastest 4G LTE network in America.

“Does it sound like I’m bragging,” questioned Legere in a tweet, “Because these are results to brag about.”
