While unveiling its latest Uncarrier initiative, T-Mobile revealed that it recorded 2.75 million gross customer additions for the month of August.
It’s unclear how much of that total is branded postpaid additions. But to put some perspective on the number, T-Mobile posted 1.5 million net customer additions.
CEO John Legere called August the best month in the history of T-Mobile.
The huge monthly additions come as T-Mobile is closing in on Sprint in terms of total customers. At the end of the previous quarter, T-Mobile had 50.5 million customers and Sprint had 53 million. Legere again reiterated his expectation that T-Mobile will overtake Sprint before the end of the year.
