Straight Talk rakes in a half million subscribers

Tis the season for third quarter earnings reports. These are mostly uninteresting, even in terms of subscriber numbers. Really, we only share the ones that have the most relevance to Prepaid Reviews. One of them, of course, is Straight Talk. They came in big during the third quarter, adding 515,000 subscribers. This is all the more remarkable, because usually wireless carriers are a bit slower in the second and third quarters. Chances are this was a late-quarter rush following the release of the Samsung Galaxy Precedent. They’re primed to have a bit fourth quarter, too, now that they have two Android handsets. The holiday rush won’t hurt.
