T-Mobile US becomes number two on US market after reaching 98.3 mln customers in Q2

Friday 7 August 2020 | 00:14 CET | News
T-Mobile US said revenues got a boost in the second quarter from its merger with Sprint, while the net profit got hit by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and one-off costs related to the merger. The number of customers added came well within the company's wide guidance, with total customers reaching 98.3 million at the end of the quarter, pushing the company to second place on the US market after Verizon, overtaking AT&T. This is T-Mobile US' first quarter since closing its merger with Sprint.
