T-Mobile USA reported its second quarter 2013 results on Thursday morning, noting $6.3 billion in revenue – a 20 percent bump over the same quarter last year. T-Mobile’s new Simple Choice plans appear to be working well to attract customers, too: the carrier added 1.1 million net customer additions during the quarter. That’s a change of pace from when the carrier was bleeding customers just a year ago. It probably doesn’t hurt that T-Mobile now offers the iPhone, a product that likely pushed customers to other carriers at one point.
T-Mobile also noted that it is moving quickly with its MetroPCS merger and that it plans to push the brand into 15 new markets, and that it has already combined the regional carrier’s LTE spectrum with its own spectrum in Las Vegas.
The carrier expects to continue to add customers and predicts that its postpaid net additions will fall between 1 million and 1.2 million customers for the entire year.
