John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile US, Inc. said, “The good news just keeps on coming for T-Mobile. The momentum we are seeing with our T-Mobile and MetroPCS brands is outstanding and the fact that we’ve blown by everyone to take the No.1 spot in prepaid is icing on the cake.”
“As a matter of fact, I’m going on record — I predict we’ll overtake Sprint in total customers by the end of this year. Not someday. Not next year. This year,” Legere said.
According to Legere, the providers are giving high emphasis on the prepaid services as this has become an important area of the mobile marketplace. But no other wireless company has managed to beat the Un-carrier has in this sensitive market.
Americans are voting with their feet, and they’re joining this Un-carrier revolution by the millions,” Legere said.
