1.9 million unlocked Apple iPhone units run over T-Mobile
T-Mobile CEO John Legere is speaking at the Citi Global Internet, Media and Telecommunications conference in Las Vegas and the executive has just announced that the carrier is signing up 100,000 Apple iPhones a day
to run on T-Mobile's pipeline. Thanks to its unlimited data plan, T-Mobile has become a fave hosting spot for those with unlocked models older than the LTE-enabled Apple iPhone 5
. The fastest speeds that Apple iPhone owners can achieve on T-Mobile is 3G, which is why those with the newer version of the device might be less interested in T-Mobile. Still, a penny saved is a penny earned, and some Apple iPhone 5 users might be on the rolls.
Speaking of which, there are now 1.9 million unlocked Apple iPhones
hosted by T-Mobile. That is up 200,000 since December 6th
when it was revealed that 1.7 million units of Apple's iconic smartphone were powered by the nation's fourth largest carrier. Now that T-Mobile is expected to sell the Apple iPhone this year
, we can see that the mobile operator should do some brisk business, limited only by how fast the carrier can roll out its LTE network. And as we told you, LTE market number one is expected to go live before the end of this month
, in Las Vegas.
