USA based T Mobile has reported that it added 61 000 new customers in the fourth quarter of last year turning around the net loss of nearly half a million customers that the company suffered the year before.
Revenues however fell by 5.2% to USD4.9 billion.
Adjusted OIBDA of $1 billion decreased 25% year-on-year largely due to higher planned quarterly advertising expenses, promotional programs and retention efforts
T-Mobile also announced that it has completed upgrades in several new metro areas, and that its HSPA+ network currently serves 225 million people nationwide, with 142 million people covered by the service on 1900 MHz spectrum.

Approximately 100,000 iPhone customers every month are making the switch to T-Mobile under the BYOD plans, bringing the total number of iPhone users currently on the T-Mobile network to more than 2 million.
