T-Mobile Us Inc (NASDAQ: TMUS)
Deutsche Telekom merged its T-Mobile USA unit with prepaid specialist MetroPCS in 2013, creating T-Mobile US. Following the merger, the firm provided nationwide service in major markets but spottier coverage elsewhere. T-Mobile has spent aggressively on low-frequency spectrum, well suited to broad coverage, and has substantially expanded its geographic footprint. This expansion, coupled with aggressive marketing and innovative offerings, produced rapid customer growth. With the Sprint acquisition, the firm’s scale now roughly matches its larger rivals: T-Mobile now serves 65 million postpaid and 21 million prepaid phone customers, equal to nearly 30% of the retail wireless market. In addition, the firm provides wholesale service to resellers like Tracfone.
A quick look at the price chart below for T-Mobile shows us that the stock is up 37% in the past twelve months.
