US mobile carrier T-Mobile has announced their latest financial results for the first quarter of 2013, they added a total of 579,000 new customers to their network and also announced how many iPhone 5s they have sold.
T-Mobile started selling the iPhone 5 on the 12th of April, and the company managed to sell over 500,000 iPhone 5s in just under a month, on their new Uncarrier no contract plans.
“Our first quarter operating metrics and financial results are showing positive impact from the changes we began making in the fourth quarter. Branded customer net additions turned positive for the first time since the first quarter of 2009 and our postpaid business has demonstrated significant improvement,” said John Legere, President & CEO of T-Mobile. “We ended the quarter with strong operational momentum, which is continuing into the second quarter, driven by the successful launch of our Un-carrier “Simple Choice” service plan and the introduction of the iPhone into our device line-up. Things only get more exciting from here, having brought T-Mobile USA and MetroPCS together to create the wireless industry’s value leader and premier challenger.”
