T-Mobile added 371,000 new subscribers, but mostly prepaid

By: t-marco February 25th, 2010

The U.S. carrier, the smallest of the big four nationwide carriers, said it added a total of 371,000 new subscribers in the fourth quarter. This is an improvement over customer losses from the third quarter. But it’s still lower than customer gains the company saw in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Still, T-Mobile says that 79 percent of its customers are on a contract, down slightly from 82 percent of its base in the fourth quarter of 2008.1. During the fourth quarter, contract customers spent on average about $51 per month. On average, prepaid customers spent about $18 a month.

If the company continues loosing or not getting more new postpaid customers, probably the rumors about T-Mobile will be looking for partners will be true. But so far no action has been taken.

T-Mobile HSPA+ vs Sprint Wimax .. by PCWorld

By: t-marco February 23rd, 2010

T-Mobile just recently announced its new WebConnect Rocket USB Modem capable to reach speeds up to 21Mbps while Sprint already offers WiMax service for quite a while. PCWorld has compared both services in mayor cities like Las Vegas and Philadelphia.

About the WebConnect Rocket : T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ modem is even faster than the WiMAX devices we tested. But T-Mobile needs to provide a clear picture of their service plans and network buildout before we jump on board.

About Sprint Modem : If you’re connecting with Sprint, there’s no reason to get a 3G-only modem any more. Step up to a 3G/WiMAX combo with the U301—just don’t expect too much of WiMAX.
