T-Mobile doing fabulous at the expense of subscriber loser AT&T, tip analysts
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 15, 2016, 2:44 AM
These [1.29 million]customer additions and churn numbers continue to be impressive, in our view, with TMUS capturing the overwhelming majority of postpaid handset growth."If you are wondering what prompted the carrier to leave the Dark Side and join the bright new dawn of contract-free wireless, look no further than diminishing customer base and high churn levels. Wells Fargo analysts issued their forecasts how the major US carriers may have fared during the holiday season quarter, and AT&T is the only one with a net subscriber loss there. Both Verizon and Spint are expected to post stable growth numbers, while T-Mobile is simply doing fabulous, according to the investment bank's report: "
There you have it - AT&T was forced to react, and it did so in force, though other analysts are warning that its moves may have been a little too late, and they expect AT&T to keep losing subscribers in the next quarters. In the meantime, you can enjoy its new, cheaper monthly plans with one of the value-for-money unlocked handsets that we have rounded up for you.

Great, now if only we had a T-Mobile here in Canada, that will for sure put an end to the big 3, all of which are like greed-twins to AT&T...

Can't speak for the Canada situation, but it has been a huge relief getting free of the clutches of the greedy carriers who were nickel-and-diming us for every conceivable and even inconceivable reason. T-Mobile has been a real breath of fresh air. I am very glad they decided to break ways with the carrier hegemony and focus on giving value to their customers instead of ripping us off like the other carriers have been doing.

Well....if you get the TMO North American Plan, just gotta find someone with a us address or something, they treat CA, USA, Mexico as all one calling zone, no additional fees. So you could use it in CA, using their roaming partners etc...

It is T-Mobile policy that customers who are extreme roamers can and will get their service terminated if the behavior continues. It obviously isn't something that it too difficult for them to monitor and something they will not hesitate to do at all to extreme abusers. My source is that I work in a T-Mobile call center and you can also find stories online from disgruntled customers about being put on the extreme roamer list.

If you live in the bigger city's and don't travel a lot Tmobile is great. But there service socks in small towns and in a lot of other areas between point A and B where AT&T and Verizon work great.

Your comment would have been valid a few years ago, but things have changed. I live and work in a smaller city (I even take issue with it being called a city), and I travel a lot, and on both points my T-Mobile service has been great. Last October I even traveled to a part of the US where there is supposed to be no cellular service from any of the carriers (Washington Island, Door County, WI), and I was very surprised when my phone started buzzing with incoming notifications as soon as I got on the ferry for the return trip, before we had even left the island. The ferry captain told me I must have AT&T. I told him, "No, I have T-Mobile."

I agree. I've only been with T-Mobile for 2 years, and I've noticed in that span the service gets better and better. I live in NYC now, and get better building penetration with them than others on Verizon and At&t. It's almost funny because they are shocked I'm with T-mo. As far as traveling, I've gotten service everywhere I've traveled, and my home town is 3500 people about 30 minutes from the closest city, and I still get 4g LTE. I'm a very happy customer. And I can vouch for the service in other countries as well. I've been to England, Scotland, Denmark, Finland, and Estonia without a hiccup in service. I'm going to Beijing in 2 months, and I'm expecting great service there too.

Then stick with AT&T without complaining about cost.

if you have direct or uverse, their new unlimited costs the same as tmo's completley unlimited, and you get 1 gb more of data before they start throttling, so the price isn't as much of an issue with one or two factors, otherwise tmobile is a fantastic deal

Methinks that, since ATT adds a lot of customers through partnerships with carmakers, it's also bound to have a high churn rate. I don't know the details, but I suspect that new car buyers get free ATT data for a while and most do not sign up after the promotional free period is over.

Regardless, AT&T, VERIZON, COMCAST, they all need to adjust their prices.. People have to cut cost from their budgets, due to lower wages and job displacement. Just today Walmart announced it was closing 269 stores, is all a cycle.......adios

I really wish they were hurting arrogant, scummy Verizon. They need an attitude adjustment.
