T-Mobile made breaking news earlier this week when it made a deal with Apple to carry the iPhone. Now, the carrier’s CEO John Legere hopes Apple’s device will stop customer losses – that is, customers leaving the network, a more common occurrence recently – and help T-Mobile to subscriber growth as soon as 2013.
Legere called this an “aggressive target”, but he is confident that it is “possible”.
T-Mobile has been suffering from substantial customer losses over the course of 2012, losing roughly 500’000 subscribers per quarter, so the carrier will be hard-pressed to meet its goal. However, one analyst reckons this shouldn’t be a difficult target, predicting 4-5 million iPhone sales on T-Mobile next year.
T-Mobile’s smartphone line-up is now becoming increasingly competitive with the other major US carriers, and now, with the iPhone, T-Mobile may be able to catch up with its rivals in the next year.
