T-Mobile Passes Sprint To Become The Third Largest Carrier In The US with 59 Million Subscribers

T-Mobile and its bombastic CEO John Legere have been making waves in the US wireless industry, and consumers have been taking notice. According to the latest quarterly earnings report filed by T-Mo, the carrier is now larger than its competitor Sprint, making it the number three runner in America. T-Mobile claims 58.9 million subscribers in the US as of July, narrowly besting Sprint's reported number of 56.8 million from today. T-Mobile has added at least a million customers each quarter for the last nine quarters, and 2.1 million in the last three months.

In truth, T-Mobile may have actually passed this milestone some time ago.

[Update: Cap Removed] Sprint, Officially America's Dumbest Carrier, Adds A Hard 600Kbps Video Streaming Speed Cap To Its New Unlimited Plans

Today, Sprint announced a new phone plan called "All-In": $80 a month (plus tax and surcharges) gets you unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data[FOOTNOTE GOES HERE]. As you can probably see in the title of this post, this new new plan is terrible, dumb, and you shouldn't support it, because it's complete bullshit that Sprint is even allowed to do this. In fact, it's not clear they're allowed to do it at all.

Sprint's Direct 2 You Service Offers House Calls For Phone Sales And Service In New York, LA, San Francisco, And Denver

Sprint would really like you to buy a phone. Really. So much so that they're willing to throw a salesperson and a bunch of phones in a branded car and drive to your door to sell it to you, preferably along with a service contract and a $30 case.

The service launches today in metro areas in and around New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver. Wait, what? Denver?

WSJ: Sprint Stops Throttling Unlimited Plans Following New FCC Rules

The Federal Communications Commission is taking action, and wireless carriers are now on guard. Once the government department's new net-neutrality rules took effect on Friday, Sprint stopped throttling customers on unlimited plans, according to The Wall Street Journal. The carrier says its policy would have been allowed under the new rules, but it made the change anyway just to be sure.

Sprint

Sprint made this decision a few days before the FCC fined AT&T $100 million for making misleading promises of unlimited data. The carrier, which no longer offers such plans, throttled customers who went over unspecified data limits and didn't notify those affected.
