T-Mobile becomes top prepaid provider in U.S.

T-Mobile has become the number one provider of prepaid wireless service, according to a press release from the Un-carrier. Overtaking the bigger three players in the space, T-Mobile now services some 15.64 million no-contract subscribers. By comparison, Sprint has 15.19 million, followed by AT&T at 11.34 million, and Verizon at 6.04 million. It looks like MetroPCS deal is certainly paying off.

Looking ahead, T-Mobile is bold and ambitious in their expectations. Well, at least CEO John Legere is.

The momentum we’re 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.”

With only five months left in the year T-Mobile has its work cut out for them. There are roughly 4 million subscribers difference between the two as of recent estimates.
