Sprint Added 682,000 New Customers Last Quarter

Tyler Lee February 12, 2014

Sprint Added 682,000 New Customers Last QuarterSprint has recently announced its Q4 2013 earnings where they revealed that they have managed to add 682,000 customers during the last three months of 2013 alone, which admittedly is a pretty impressive feat. According to the breakdown, 322,000 of their new customers opted for Sprint’s prepaid plan, while only 58,000 were new postpaid customers. The remaining 302,000 were wholesale buyers, at least that’s what Sprint has revealed. Unfortunately despite the addition of new customers onto their network, the carrier has also announced that they experienced a loss of $1 billion which while a lot, is down from $1.3 billion which the carrier reported in the same period back in 2012.

This is apparently because the carrier was only able to sell 5.6 million smartphones during the three month period which is apparently not a good sign at all. That being said, with these numbers, perhaps the T-Mobile and Sprint merger might not be such a bad idea after all. With T-Mobile’s aggressive Uncarrier strategy and efforts to steal customers from competing networks, it would no doubt aid Sprint in expanding their reach. That is if regulators give their approval, of course.

    Sprint And SoftBank Rethink T Mobile Bid [Report]

    There is a lot of speculation surrounding the T-Mobile Sprint merger. The latter is yet to make an official bid for Magenta, even though it has been rumored that there’s over $40 billion available in financing should a deal be made. Apparently Sprint and its parent company Softbank are currently rethinking about going down this road, because apparently they have been shocked by ”the level of opposition and its public nature.”

    Sprint Push To Talk Expanded To More Phones

    Sprint Push To Talk Expanded To More Phones

    Its going to be a surge of nostalgia for Nextel users. The Nextel network was shut down last year, its customers were quite besotted with its push to talk feature, which essentially makes the phone function as a walkie-talkie. When Sprint finally integrated Nextel’s network, it tried its very best to offer a similar feature to ease previous customers back into the fold, and today it carries on with that mission. Sprint has announced that it is extending its push to talk feature to more phones through a downloadable application.

    Sprint T-Mobile Merger To Be Discussed With FCC

    Sprint T Mobile Merger To Be Discussed With FCC

    Ever since it was first rumored that Sprint is interested in buying T-Mobile, there has been a lot of speculation about the response of regulatory authorities over the Sprint T-Mobile merger. This isn’t the first time that Magenta has attracted a buyer, back in 2011 it agreed to sell itself to AT&T for $39 billion, but the deal was blocked by regulators. Analysts are of the view that similar issues might plague a similar deal this time around as well, which is presumably why Sprint higher-ups are meeting with regulators to see where they lean prior to making an official buyout bid for T-Mobile U.S.

    Red Nexus 5 Could Launch On February 4

    Edwin Kee January 31, 2014

    Red Nexus 5 Could Launch On February 4There has been much that had been said about the upcoming Nexus 5 which will arrive in a shade of bright red, making us wonder whether this is some sort of Nokia creation instead. After all, Nokia’s collection of Lumia smartphones tend to lean more on the colorful, plastic side. We have seen extra red Nexus 5 photos make an appearance online already, which can only mean one thing – the real deal should be well on its way to roll out. The latest leaked screenshot of Sprint’s internal Playbook did point out that the red version of the Nexus 5 will be introduced to the masses this coming February 4th. Do bear in mind that nothing has been made official to date, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Adnan Farooqui January 28, 2014

    johnlegere

    There has been much speculation about an imminent T-Mobile Sprint merger ever since it was first rumored that Sprint’s parent company, Softbank, was interested in acquiring the fourth largest U.S. carrier. Earlier this month, T-Mobile CEO John Legere gave off the vibe that the carrier was not interested in being taken over, saying that there was more potential for T-Mobile as an independent player. Last week it was rumored that Softbank has now entered in direct talks with Deutsche Telekom, which owns a controlling stake in T-Mobile U.S., and Legere now seems to be warming up to the idea of a merger.

    Android 4.4 KitKat update might have arrived in record time for the Moto X back when it was first released, but Motorola’s flagship smartphone was overshadowed by its younger sibling which became the first of the company’s mobile devices to receive the Android 4.4.2 update. Since then many Moto X owners have wondered aloud when they’ll get the update on their device as well. Recently one Verizon Moto X owner received the update on their device, and now it has popped up on a Sprint subscriber’s Moto X.

    T-Mobile Value Is Back To AT&T Deal Level: Deutsche Telekom CEO

    Adnan Farooqui January 20, 2014

    T Mobile Value Is Back To AT&T Deal Level: Deutsche Telekom CEO

    Germany’s Deutsche Telekom has a 67 percent controlling stake in T-Mobile U.S. The country’s fourth largest mobile carrier received a buyout bid from AT&T back in 2011, it was offered $39 billion, which it accepted. However the deal was blocked by regulatory authorities, and T-Mobile was compensated with roughly $7 billion in cash and spectrum. Since then, T-Mobile has become quite popular, in 2013 alone it made a number of “uncarrier” moves that brought in a lot of new subscribers. The carrier has bounced back in spectacular fashion, even after the botched deal with AT&T left its future uncertain. Deutsche Telekom CEO Timotheus Hoettges believes that the carrier is now back to the AT&T deal level, he pegs it at $42 billion.

    Softbank And Deutsche Telekom In Talks About T Mobile Buyout By Sprint [Report]

    There has been a lot of chatter about Sprint buying out T-Mobile. Having the fourth largest U.S. carrier under its belt would help Sprint launch a much more effective competitions against the two behemoths dominating U.S. mobile industry, Verizon and AT&T. While T-Mobile recently gave off the vibe that it may not be interested in a buyout, latest reports suggest that Softbank, which owns Sprint, and Deutsche Telekom, which holds a 67 percent stake in T-Mobile, have now entered in direct talks.

    Speculation surged recently as Deutsche Telekom transferred its stake in T-Mobile from a German holding company to a Dutch holding company, some believe that this might be an indication of its willingness to sell the U.S. arm of T-Mobile. Softbank will reportedly offer as much as $20 billion for the entire business, previous reports claimed that Softbank CEO had approached as many as six financial institutions and that he has received assurances that financing will be available should a deal be made. In direct talks, matters such as the amount of stock and cash to be paid for T-Mobile U.S. and the way the carrier will be integrated with Sprint are expected to be discussed, this according to sources familiar with the matter, Reuters reports.
