T-Mobile reports biggest quarter of growth ever


t-mobile_logo_feature

It seems that at least one carrier had a good third quarter of 2014 with T-Mobile reporting their biggest ever growth. Touting 1.4 million new subscribers of branded postpaid net adds with 2.3 million total customers added in the third quarter alone, totalling 10 million customers added in the last 6 months.

Service revenues grew 10.6% to total $5.7 billion with an average bill per user of $61.59. Not only was growth good but revenue was up, so it’s all looking good for T-Mobile it seems.

Check out the full press release here.

T-Mobile scored 2.3 million new customers in the third quarter, creams the competition again



T-Mobile scored 2.3 million new customersIf there was any doubt as to which American telco company has been growing the fastest in recent months, it has today been confirmed again. According to their quarterly results for the third quarter this year, T-Mobile scored 2.3 million new customers, 1.4 million of which were postpaid customers, and beat out its main competitors in AT&T (2 million) and Verizon (1.53 million) in the same time period – that’s actually less than the 2.4 million T-Mobile pulled in earlier this year. And it’s not like T-Mobile is just pulling in bean counting customers with its average billings per user increasing 4% year-over-year. Not too shabby.

It’s really no surprise given the amount of goodwill that the company has after launching the Un-Carrier plans as well as various other initiatives which for all intents and purposes puts the customer in a very good position. It’s hard to tell whether the recent device launches have affected the number of signings T-Mobile acquired, but it’s hard to argue with results. Now if only Australia had a carrier like T-Mobile…

T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network reaches 250 million people in the United States


T-Mobile Nationwide 4G LTE

The pace at which T-Mobile has been moving is incredible. Constantly, the carrier is hitting milestones way ahead of schedule. The latest milestone is the reach of its 4G LTE network. T-Mobile says that it reaches 250 million people in the United States. This is “months ahead of schedule.” And by June of next year, T-Mobile plans to cover 280 million people with 300 million targeted for the end of 2015.

The next step for T-Mobile, though, does not just include increasing the reach of its 4G LTE network. It is continue to work on Voice Over LTE (VoLTE), WiFi Calling, and Wideband LTE. In a company blog post, chief technology officer Neville Ray said this is all part of T-Mobile’s “complete committment to advancing our Data Strong network.”

T-Mobile keeps outgrowing its rivals with 2.3 million new customers


T-Mobile's John Legere makes it personal

T-Mobile has apparently decided that UnCarriers release their fiscal results at night, well after investors have gone home — and to no one’s surprise, there’s plenty of good news that couldn’t wait until the morning. The Magenta network is reporting that it added 2.3 million new customers in the third quarter of the year, 1.4 million of them postpaid (that is, regular subscribers). That’s not the highest figure we’ve seen this year, but it’s more than enough to outpace heavyweights AT&T (2 million wireless additions) and Verizon (1.53 million). Its average bill per person is up slightly year-over-year, too, so it’s not simply bringing in the cost-conscious types.

As to what’s driving those numbers? T-Mobile contends that you can still chalk up its success to pricing that’s simpler and more affordable than the competition. However, it probably won’t surprise you to hear that the iPhone 6 release played a major role. The company says that this represented its “biggest device launch ever” — not a difficult feat when the provider has only been selling Apple handsets for a year and a half, but it’s important all the same. There’s no certainty that T-Mobile will keep up this streak, but it’s providing a mostly rosy outlook which suggests that new customers will continue pouring in.

“We know Bay Area T-Mobile customers are going to notice and take advantage of the faster LTE speeds Wideband LTE provides,” said Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer, T-Mobile. “Just because we’ve made an upgrade to the network in these areas, don’t think we are done yet. We are continually working to enhance and expand LTE coverage for our customers every day.”


According to T-Mobile Bay Area customers that are using an average of 2.5GB per month of data are clocking speeds faster than Verizon, and AT&T as well as reporting nearly twice the speeds of Sprint. All of this was done trough a 3rd party crowd-source speed test. Many are reporting 21Mbps and some have seen speeds as high as 90Mbps. Not to shabby T-Mobile.

If you are in the Great Bay Area hit the speed tests and see what you are pulling now. Let us know if you are seeing a boost or if things are still hovering.

The prepaid carrier (through T-Mobile) is offering the Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet for $149 (plus tax) on a pretty inexpensive data plan. For $10/month, you can get unlimited data, which siphons off 1GB  of data to the Pop 7 tablet. If you add the device to an existing plan, you’ll get a $5 monthly discount off your bill. Here are the rates for current subscribers, straight from MetroPCS/T-Mobile’s press release..

  • $10 / month: Unlimited data with first 1GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds
  • $20 / month: Unlimited data with first 3GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds
  • $30 / month: Unlimited data with first 5GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds

The tablet itself isn’t much in itself — a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch display, 8.9 mm thin, Wi-Fi/4G/Bluetooth and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean — but it still isn’t a bad deal for prepaid customers looking to expand their tech arsenal.

Android 4.4.4 and Eye Experience update rolling out for T-Mobile HTC One M8



Looks like today is a double good day for T-Mobile HTC One M8 owners. Not only is Google Play Music getting an update that brings Material Design styles to the app, but you guys are also getting an OTA. The update that has started to make its way to devices is Android 4.4.4. The update weighs in at 255MB and moves your build number to 3.32.531.2. While deing on the most currently official Android version is nice, the update brings something a bit more interesting and exciting for M8 owners, the HTC Eye Experience.

HTC eye Experience

The Eye Experience was first shown off by HTC at a press event on October 8th where they debuted the HTC Re and HTC Desire Eye. While the devices were pretty sweet, it was the mention of the Eye Experience software heading to the One M7, One M8 and One E8 that was a bit more exiting. After all, many of us aren’t ready to buy a new phone for some software when our M8 or M7 are still perfect. Some of the key comments include:

  • Auto and Voice selfie taking
  • Enhanced group video call with face tracking to keep you framed and focused
  • Split capture by taking a photo/videos with the front and rear camera at the same time.
  • Crop me in will let you crop your self into photos
  • And a few more


The update is rolling out to T-Mobile HTC One M8 owners starting today. While the T-Mobile support site isn’t updated to reflect it, we have seen a few posts from people saying they have it. I assume it will roll out in stages and could take a bit of time for ever M8 owner to receive. Be sure to check for the update through Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > Check Now. Don’t forget, a battery that is charged of 50% , Wi-Fi and a bit of time to get it downloaded and installed is recommended. Should take about 15-20 minutes.
