July 31 T-Mobile US Inc added 1.5
million net customers in the second quarter, up from 1.1 million
a year earlier, as the company continued an aggressive discount
campaign that has shaken up prices in the wireless industry.
The No. 4 U.S. mobile operator's quarterly revenue rose 15.4
percent to $7.2 billion, boosted by higher equipment sales and
the popularity of a series of promotions aimed at luring
subscribers away from the industry's top two players, Verizon
Communications Inc and AT&T Inc.
The mobile provider, which is 67 percent owned by Deutsche
Telekom, earned $391 million, or 48 cents per share,
in the quarter ended June 30, compared with a loss of $16
million, or 2 cents per share, a year earlier.
