Friday 4 November 2016 | 10:17 CET | News
Overall US mobile service revenues returned to growth in the third quarter, after four straight quarters of declines, helped above all by T-Mobile's performance. The latest mobile market update from Chetan Sharma revealed that in the last four quarters T-Mobile accounted for an impressive 81 percent of phone net-adds. The report also found that the industry's net income increased by 6 percent in the third quarter, with good gains from Sprint and T-Mobile more than offsetting Verizon's lower net income.
