T-Mobile plans to become the 3rd largest carrier in the US by the end of 2014

T-Mobile plans to overtake Sprint as the 3rd largest wireless carrier in 2014.
August 8, 2014

Ever since John Legere took over at T-Mobile, they have been on the rise. Just last weeks ago, T-Mobile continued to rank as the fastest growing wireless carrier in the US.

Now, T-Mobile is planning to overtake Sprint as the 3rd largest wireless carrier in the US (per subscribers) by the end of the year. In a tweet yesterday (alerted to us by ReCode), John Legere bragged about his goal of over-taking Sprint in 2014.


Just the other day, T-Mobile announced that they are now ahead of  Sprint as the largest wireless provider for prepaid customers.

Then again, T-Mobile may not need to do much if they want to pass Sprint in 2014 as customers continue to leave Sprint in large numbers. In fact, Sprint is the only major US carrier still struggling with financial ($151 million) and subscriber (364,000 pre-paid and 231,000 valuable postpaid customers) losses due to terrible service and a rather bleak-to-average looking future.
