T-Mobile Q1 2015 earnings call set for April 28

T-Mobile

T-Mobile just announced that its first quarter financial results will be revealed at 10:00am Eastern Time (7am Pacific) on April 28. Like previous quarters, there will be a short time of scripted remarks before launching in to “free-flowing dialogue with analysts, investors, media and consumers.”

Also, like last quarter, T-Mobile will publish a live stream of the video on Twitter which you can access from your mobile device. Just be sure to follow the @TMobileIR handle. You’ll also be able to catch the live stream at the usual page: investor.t-mobile.com.

If you want to ask questions or engage with the executive team, you can tweet your questions to the aforementioned Twitter account using hashtag “#TMUSearnings”, they’ll even take questions via text messages sent to 313131 with keyword “TMUS” beginning the message.

If analyst predictions are anything to go by, Q1 could see T-Mobile continue its strong performance and continue momentum from the Un-carrier moves. We could see as many as 1.1 million net postpaid additions.

We’ll find out all the numbers and figures at 7:30am Eastern, when T-Mobile releases the report, 2.5 hours before the earnings call goes live. As always, we’ll have coverage before, during and after the earnings call with all the numbers and our opinions on them to boot.

    It should be 56.5 million customers.

    • taron19119

      And how many customers is sprint going to lose

      • SprintSucks

        we don’t want sprint to die, imagine our network being suddenly choked by millions of addl users…

        • taron19119

          The more users the more money to by spectrum to improve network and you’re contradicting yourself by name your self sprint sucks

        • Jay Holm

          We might just see that as T-mobile gets close to 60m customers sometime in the 2nd half of the year. I’m looking forward to the MetroPCS network completely being shut down and that remaining 5mhz being added to make more 20mhz LTE markets!!!

        • Guest

          Atlanta and Detroit have already updated the CDMA PRL to “another” service provider. They have already decommissioned its CDMA network and are offering incentives to its customers to switch to GSM..

        • Jay Holm

          Ok,…that’s something of an update. Do you have any info on the Connecticut market? New Haven/Fairfield County? Do you think by the 3rd or 4th qtr of this year there will be more markets with 20mhz of Wideband LTE?

  • taron19119

    What i what to hear them talk about is band 12 going live in more places and edge/2g to LTE progress

    • Justsomecommentor

      Me too. Band 12 is live in parts of Los Angeles, but not Orange County.

      • taron19119

        Band 12 is spotty and not in every place just in 3 places in philadelphia i have my note 4 useing just band 12 to see how it is and so far band 12 suck bad

        • g2a5b0e

          Better than band nothing, i.e. no service.

        • taron19119

          Not at all band 12 suck because t-mobile does not have it every where in philadelphia like band 4

        • Chris Meyers

          Its not meant for everywhere. If youre expecting some kind of vast distribution 700A network youre never going to get that. First off, it was never designed to be used exclusively, shutting off the other bands like you did. Second it will never match the AWS network nor is it supposed to because its only 5 Mhz as compared to the 20 or more mhz of AWS. It is simply to provide some LTE coverage outside of normal coverage areas like rural areas and tall buildings. Thats it.

        • Cam Bunton

          Awesome way to put it.

        • Chris Meyers

          Thanks. To further elaborate, it is meant to provide that level of seamless everywhere coverage that one has without noticing on Verizon and ATT. AWS is very fast and because of fhe amount of AWS we have, we can offer pretty much unrestricted speeds through our AWs spectrum, but it simply doesnt propogate as well. So youre left with infamous coverge donut holes in suburbs and exurbs, sparse rural coverage outside of suburbs, bad in building penetration etc. This 700 A network just fills in the gaps and provides seamless coverage without customers even having to think about bands. The net effect is your phone always says LtE when youre like 50 miles out in a rural suburb, or downtown in a skyscraper. You shouldnt worry in the slightest what band you are on, and it shouldnt matter. Its a way to provide that seamless experience on coverage that the others provide.

        • taron19119

          Well band 4 is not good for me in some parts of my house i still get edge and at. Work

        • Hector Arteaga

          Get a booster, they really work. I got one for our future work building (nobody gets coverage in there) and the booster really helped.

        • Fabian Cortez

          Not to mention that Neville Ray said they are deploying band 12 from the outskirts of the city in.

        • taron19119

          So how come just 3 places in philadelphia have band 12

        • Fabian Cortez

          So how come just 3 places in philadelphia have band 12

          Maybe because Philadelphia isn’t an officially launched market?

        • taron19119

          And that’s why I’m not happy because its just 3 places and it don’t go to far

        • Fabian Cortez

          How can you complain about something that’s not officially launched?

        • taron19119

          Because during q4 2014 results they said philadelphia is one of the band 12 market doing good

        • Guest

          Only 3 have it because they have not lit up all the towers yet. They have targeted sites they turn on and then monitor for so long to make sure there are no issues. Once they no issues they go into another area and so on and so forth.. I was talking to a engineer and she told me every day they turn more and more on. They just want to make sure there they do it right the first time. When I first saw Band 12 on my Note 4 I was excited… until i realized that I still have no service in my basement.. 3 or 4 days later, I had full bars of band 12 LTE. I asked the engineer and she said they turned more on over the weekend.

        • taron19119

          What are u Talking About i have my Note 4 Useing Band 12 to see if its at my house Because i Don’t get band 4 all over and i am tired of seeing edge in different places in my house and at work

        • Eric

          700 MHz can be placed on every tower, so long as the output energy is very low. This would minimize interference and provide better penetrating coverage than AWS or PCS (but not necessarily coverage).

        • g2a5b0e

          You clearly didn’t understand my comment.

        • taron19119

          I do understand

        • Fabian Cortez

          Deploying band 12 on every cell site doesn’t make sense.

          It makes not sense for T-Mobile for deploy band 12 in an area where their AWS is doing just fine (in-building coverage, etc.).

          Then again your area may not be optimized.

        • taron19119

          What are u talking about optimized m just sick of going to work and being
          On edge and sme parts of my house is getting edge

        • Fabian Cortez

          Believe it or not, you can’t just put up an antenna and call it a day. Networks need to be optimized for optimal performance by qualified individuals.

          Go ask those Sprint users that are still waiting for SMR LTE (L800) optimization… 8+ months later.

        • taron19119

          That’s y i want t-mobile to say what markets are officially live with band 12

        • Jay Holm

          8mo’s? Haven’t Sprint users been waiting a whole lot longer than that?

      • Tyler Riddle

        700 MHz deployed at 55/5 interchange tower and 55/22 interchange tower. I also saw it at waterman exit and the 210 in San Bernardino.

        • Justsomecommentor

          Did you detect an actual verifiable Band 12 signal? The time between installing the new equipment and actually putting out a signal can be quite long.

        • Tyler Riddle

          I don’t have a 700 MHz device, but I know the antennas are up! :)

    • Jay Holm

      T-mobile needs to get these stations in both the Boston and NYC markets to vacate Band 12, so it can be deployed there, and more widely in Connecticut!

  • Jay J. Blanco

    I was combing the Internet looking for a date. Thanks cam! Time to take on AT&T!

    • Spanky

      AT&T has nearly 122 million subscribers. T-Mobile has a long way to go, particularly when it comes to coverage disparity.

      • Jay J. Blanco

        Considering AT&T responds to every promotion t-mobile starts isome a sign. T-Mobile covers majority of Americans it’s only a matter of time. Which carrier is the fastest growing? Who added 8.4 Million customers last year?

        • Spanky

          It doesn’t matter who the fastest growing carrier is, when the coverage is not there. T-Mobile covers the majority of Americans in cities, but there’s still the building penetration issue, as well as areas outside of cities. With regards to AT&T responding to every promotion started by T-Mobile, every other carrier does as well. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate what T-Mobile is doing to trigger competition, as all customers, regardless of what carrier they are on, get to reap the benefits. Unfortunately, until T-Mobile’s coverage at least approaches that of AT&T and Verizon, they won’t be taking on anyone.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Yeah but the heck needs coverage in the mountains and farm land. Enjoy nature. We didn’t have cellphones 150 years ago and that’s fine not have 4G lte is fine. I’ve learned to live with it you can tweet and update Facebook when you get home. People are too caught up in their phone as it is.

        • Spanky

          It’s not mountains and farmland. Try walking into a building in NYC and watch the bars drop to zero.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Well your while debacle is invalid especially when it comes to new york city. T-Mobile owns.. 700mhz spectrum they are waiting for the TV station to relocate which the process hasn’t started yet unfortunately. It should be next year but Long Island, CT, upstate NY, and Philadelphia, DC all are in the process of being covered with 700mhz towers.

        • Spanky

          While they are waiting for the station to relocate and vacate the frequency, my argument remains 100% valid.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          It’s really not use WiFi. It’s not like they aren’t doing anything they probably already have the equipment in place. They are just waiting for the green light

        • Alfred

          Unfortunately, all attempts to argue anything logical with these people will end up crashing into the wall you’re pretty much talking to.

          Remember Spanky, it’s not that 3 other carriers trump T-Mobile and 2 obliterate it virtually everywhere, it’s that we didn’t have cellphones over 100 years ago, when we didn’t even have phones. We… had….. telegraphs. Uhhh, now that we’re arguing the reality of a smoke and mirrors show, let’s quickly divert again! None of this should matter!!! People are just too caught up in their phones. No signal is a good, healthy thing when you pay for service. It builds character!

          That channel 51 conflict that completely disables T-Mobile’s service to limited outdoor service in the biggest metro area in the country and will continue to for a minimum of 9-12 months before they can even START? It’s okay, because somewhere in upstate NY and on LI, 1,000 people can get band 12, just not the 10-15 million in the NYC metro area.

          All this while forgetting the sad reality that right outside of NYC, T-Mobile’s sparse tower placement is going to be their downfall once they convert the two or three towers per county to LTE and throw 10 boosters around, filling in the coverage map with tons of magenta in hopes people will get excited and try them.

          You can’t get a signal in a building? Oh, well use Wi-Fi it’s everywhere and Wi-Fi calling is god’s gift to humanity.
          You can’t get a signal in the suburbs? 1.) There is no such thing as the suburbs- you must like up on the mountain near gram gram or in some cornfield 3954 miles from the nearest city. or more generously, 2.) All the 2G and 3G will be magically converted by T-Mobile’s network fairies to LTE in just two, short, months. So when that doesn’t happen, T-Mobile will have meant urban areas only, then what? Wait until the end of 2015 for the new date?

        • Spanky

          I completely agree with everything in your comment. I openly praise T-Mobile for shaking up the mobile industry, a move which benefits customers of all carriers. However, I will never praise T-Mobile for their inadequate coverage and/or their network. They may have built an Apple-like cult around their brand and their CEO may use profanity to divert attention from what really matters. However, T-Mobile has a long way to go until it can even be considered to be in the same league as AT&T and Verizon, let alone take on either carrier. Sure, they may have added 8.4 million subscribers last year. However, these subscribers were added as a result of countless gimmicks, I mean, Uncarrier moves. If the network was adequate, gimmicks wouldn’t be necessary.

  • IceMan

    Well, Verizon lost ~170K postpaid cellphone users.
    AT&T lost I think ~300k postpaid cellphone users.
    T-Mobile is likely to gain ~1.5million postpaid cellphone users.
    Sprint is likely to lose a bit, but they lost ~300k or so last quarter. I’m hoping Sprint didn’t lose too much, but it’s not looking too well so far.

    • Cam Bunton

      By the sounds of it – if your figures are accurate (not read the other reports yet) – This could be an awesome quarter for T-Mobile.

    • Aaron Tant

      exactly, Verizon and ATT kept positive number based solely on Tablet sales (plus ATT’s acquisition of Leap). Feels good watching Team Magenta move up in the world.

  • Hector Arteaga

    I would imagine if Sprint keeps shedding subcribers, eventually the government would allow a merger. They can’t stay at this pace and stay afloat. It that happems, I hope it is tmo that merges with them and not one of the big two.

    • Fabian Cortez

      And then what about your spectrum fears?

      • Hector Arteaga

        That’s the thing, I hope tmo gets it before they can. I think tmo would put it to better use. They can even sell some of it if they chose to. My spectrum fear is basic. I’d rather keep it out of reach of the big two.

        • Fabian Cortez

          What I’m saying is that if the two merge, they’ll be forced to divest a majority of those BRS/EBS licenses.

          Weren’t those your fears at one point if Sprint went out of business? That the twin bells would be able to pick at that spectrum.

        • Hector Arteaga

          Didn’t know that. Hmm…

        • Hector Arteaga

          Would they be able to keep it where it would augment current spectrum?

        • Fabian Cortez

          Since their BRS/EBS licenses are pretty consistent in size across the nation, I’d imagine they’d have to give up a good 60% for other carriers. I say this when adding what Sprint and T-Mobile both own.

        • Hector Arteaga

          I hate to put it like this, but even in this scenario, the remaining spectrum would still be extremely valuable. In any case, BRS remaining in spectrum constrained markets (Chicago) would still be good. If that’s how it would work anyway.

    • Wilfredo Martinez

      Why would you entertain this idea? Having just 3 companies to choose from is not healthy. Sprint can manage they have Softbank for that.

  • emcdonald75

    Is T-Mobile going to repurpose their PCS spectrum from HSPA to LTE in areas that have AWS LTE already? Some buildings I go to will switch to HSPA and lose LTE signal but I think the signal will hold better on PCS and AWS spectrum together in an area.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    Tomorrow is the big day !!!!
