T-Mobile US acquires 5.5 million customers
New York Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile US subsidiary recently set itself the goal of reaching 5.3 million new customers – but the project was bypassed.
Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile US subsidiary increased its number of new customers by 5.5 million last year.
These were preliminary data, Peter Oswaldijk, chief financial officer of T-Mobile-US, said at an analyst event for US bank Citigroup. And so the provider won more contracts than ever before. This was the first full year after Sprint took over the competition. The largest division of the Bonn-based Dax Group recently set a target of 5.3 million new customers after deducting terminations.
Growth in new customers will return to somewhat normal this year, Oswaldijk said, without setting any detailed targets. In the USA, during the expansion of the 5G network and after the merger of T-Mobile with Sprint, service providers have recently been trying to attract more and more customers with contracts that are sold with subsidized free mobile phones. US rival AT&T increased the number of mobile phone contracts last year more than in a decade and gained 3.2 million net customers.
