Here's How T-Mobile Is Winning Market Share From Verizon, AT&T

Posted April 28, 2017

Earlier in the year reports had surfaced that SoftBank Group, the controlling shareholder of Sprint, the fourth biggest wireless carrier in the United States had strategically positioned itself for talks with Deutsche Telekom, the biggest shareholder in T-Mobile US once the ban imposed by the Federal Communications Commission expired.

CTO Neville Ray said that T-Mobile US plans to launch the new low-band spectrum first in areas where it doesn't already have low-band holdings launched, and that the carrier is "running very, very hard and we actually are already into pre-deployment phases in some parts of the country". During the conference call, T-Mobile's chief executive officer pointed out that Dish not only had access to spectrum but to content as well. The relative volume (ratio between current volume and 3-month average) is presently sitting at 1.06. There were 914,000 total branded postpaid net additions, 798,000 branded postpaid phone net additions, 386,000 branded prepaid net additions, and the company posted "record-low" branded postpaid phone churn of just 1.18%.

That T-Mobile continues to outstrip the industry in customer growth during this period underscores the momentum behind the "Un-Carrier" movement. The stock's quarterly performance indicates a Positive momentum of 9.45 percent, whereas its last one month trend is Optimistic with 4.45 percent. Stock traders bought 19,384 put options on the company.
