Sprint and T-Mobile have been sitting well behind the top two telecom giants in the United States, AT&T and Verizon, for quite some time now. However, while Sprint has been losing customers and money these past couple of years, T-Mobile has been adding customers by the truck load and, because of this, analysts are predicting that T-Mobile will overtake Sprint in the near future.
One of the bigger topics with T-Mobile and Sprint lately has been when will T-Mobile become number three, and Sprint number four. For a while Sprint had been bleeding customers and revenue. And over the past two years, T-Mobile has been adding boat loads and boat loads of customers. So something’s gotta give. T-Mobile’s CEO, John Legere says that they have already taken over Sprint. He’s stating that Sprint is using some shady tactics to count prepaid customers that are not currently active. However, Sprint did reach out to us to let us know that is untrue. So we’re sticking with the numbers both companies have given us as of Q4 2014. Which is about 55 million customers each.
