Wells Fargo analyst: T-Mobile's pricing not negatively impacting profits
Meanwhile, Credit Suisse expects Verizon to report 1.85 million net additions overall for the fourth quarter with AT&T adding 850,000. The investment bank expects Sprint to add 250,000 net additions. The investment bank said that strong tablet and device growth helped both Verizon and AT&T. Both the number one and two carriers in the nation achieved strong subscriber growth despite a rise in churn.
Speaking of churn, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure admitted that the mobile operator has the highest churn rate among the four major U.S. carriers, although December was a strong month for Sprint according to the executive. Claure added that the carrier lost fewer customers during the period. He added that in the last few days, Sprint ported positive against Verizon and AT&T in the postpaid sector. That means that it was taking away more customers from those rivals than the amount of subscribers it was losing to them. Against T-Mobile, it ported positive when prepaid was added.
