Monday 26 February 2018 | 09:56 CET | News
US Cellular added 5,000 net customers in the fourth quarter, a slowdown from additions of 35,000 in the previous quarter, but better than the year before's loss of 2,000. In the quarter, the company lost 15,000 feature phone users and 13,000 connected devices but added 33,000 smartphone subscribers. The mobile operator ended the quarter with 4.518 million postpaid customers. Prepaid users increased by 4,000, a drop from the 31,000 brought in Q3, but unchanged from the year before. Total prepaid users amounted to 519,000 at the end of the quarter.
