T-Mobile loses postpaid, gains prepaid in Q4

While its postpaid arm might not be doing so hot, T-Mobile prepaid is still gaining subscribers. While postpaid lost 318,000 subscribers in the fourth quarter, prepaid helped offset that by adding 295,000 subscribers. Yet even this number is down, as T-Mobile added 488,000 prepaid subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2009. Churn is also up on prepaid, to 7.5 percent, from 7.2 percent in the third quarter and 6.8 percent in Q4 2009. This is also higher than many of the other prepaid carriers we’ve covered. These numbers do include T-Mobile’s MVNOs, which include Simple Mobile, among others.

Update: Sorry, meant Simple Mobile as a T-Mobile MVNO, not PlatinumTel.

    PlatinumTel is not an MVNO of T-Mobile, Simple Mobile is. PlatinumTel is an MVNO of Sprint.
