Has T-Mobile Really Passed Over Sprint in the U.S.?

Sprint has been the third major carrier in the United States and, according, to the most recent report from the Magenta mobile operator, T-Mobile passes Sprint and takes over its spot. T-Mobile used to be the fourth biggest carrier but it has officially noted that this war has been won in 2015.


The competition between all operators is going on since the introduction of the first phone. Apple fans who have plans to purchase the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus or any previous or future model always compare T-Mobile vs. Sprint network, AT&T vs. Verizon etc. The fight is pretty tight. Each carrier presents new deals, discounts, data plans to win over more customers.

The new report is not about T-Mobile vs. Sprint coverage. Based on its number of subscribers, T-Mobile CEO John Legere states that it has passed Sprint and became the third-biggest U.S. wireless mobile operator.

As the company notes, Sprint has 55 million users [and this number hasn't changed in 2014] while T-Mobile went from 33 to 55 million subscribers in the last years.

The carrier believes that Sprint U.S. carrier includes inactive MVNO subscribers to its reports while T-Mobile speaks only about its active users. And thus it places third moving Sprint to the fourth position.
