T-Mobile’s Q4 2017 results won’t be announced until February, but today T-Mo decided to give us a taste of what its final three months of 2017 were like.
T-Mobile added 1.85 million new customers in Q4 2017, making it the 19th straight quarter that T-Mo added more than 1 million customers. With those new subscribers, it also means that T-Mobile added more than 5 million customers in all of 2017, which is the fourth straight year that T-Mo has achieved that feat.
Making up those 1.85 million new customers are 1 million postpaid adds (including 891,000 postpaid phone adds), 149,000 prepaid adds, and 633,000 wholesale adds.
At the end of 2017, T-Mobile had nearly 72.59 million customers in total.
Also of note is that branded postpaid churn finished at 1.18 percent in Q4 2017, down 10 basis points year-over-year. Branded prepaid churn finished at 4.00 percent, up 6 basis points YoY.
