When T-Mobile announces their Q2 results at the end of the month, analysts expect T-Mobile to continue being the “fastest-growing wireless company in the U.S.”
According to TMONews, T-Mobile’s record Q1 results showed 2.4 million net adds between January 1st and the end of March. Therefore, it should not be a surprise to see T-Mobile not replicate that growth again. With 7% service-revenue growth, T-Mobile would continue to keep the title as the fastest-growing wireless company in the country.
Even with Sprint/T-Mobile merger details continuing to be leaked, it is becoming more difficult to argue that T-Mobile by itself is not quickly approaching AT&T and Verizon as a significant third competitor. Granted, I think T-Mobile is already at that point but some continue to believe that merging with Sprint is the only way for T-Mobile to compete long-term with AT&T and Verizon.
