The US Carrier Provider T Mobile has announced that they are becoming the largest prepaid provider in the United States. The T-mobile is overtaken the Sprint to be the largest prepaid service provider in the U.S. With a total number of 15.64 million prepaid subscribers on the network. On the other side its big rivals AT&T and Verizon also, who have 11.34 and 6.04 million prepaid customers, respectively.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere had this to say on the news :
[quote]”The good news just keeps on coming for T-Mobile. 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. Americans are voting with their feet, and they’re joining this Un-carrier revolution by the millions”[/quote]
The T-Mobile’s has pretty directly mirror its postpaid options, by offering fewer extra “features” of the postpaid users like device financing and international roaming. They also offered the wide availability of its prepaid SIM cards and phones in retailers and through its website, and that is why so many people use T-Mobile prepaid. T-Mobile’s recently-acquired prepaid brand MetroPCS has also surpassed the 10 million subscriber mark, adding 1.2 million customers in the last year.
