1. 2 Million Customers Added in the Most Recent Quarter
T-Mobile added 2 million customers in its recent quarter. The announcement raised sentiment of investors that have seen the company ramp up efforts to pressure competition. The company’s bold pricing and unlimited plans have helped shape wireless companies in the United States, as competitors work to offer similar, more affordable options to consumers.
The addition of 2 million customers in the most recent quarter marks the 14th straight quarter of customer additions over 1 million.
2. Profit More Than Doubled Year-Over-Year
T-Mobile’s growing subscriber numbers have led to the company boosting its profits. The company reported profits of $366 million on the quarter with an EPS of $0.42. A year prior, the company posted profits of $138 million and an EPS of $0.15.
The company was hit with a $48 million fine last week for providing restrictions on the company’s unlimited data plans.
The FCC found that the company misrepresented its plans and imposed the fine. The company’s data plans didn’t provide information that the user’s connection speeds would be slowed after a vague threshold.
