Things appear to be looking good for T-Mobile, as they have posted another quarter of successful growth from subscribers, grabbing about 2.1 million net subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2014 alone, a little more than half of which(1.3 million) were from T-Mobile branded postpaid adds, and according to analysts from Wells Fargo T-Mobile is expected to post a service revenue increase of 14 percent in Q4 of 2014 over Q4 in the previous year. They're also predicting that T-Mobile will post a 22 percent increase on their equipment revenue in Q4 of 2014 over the previous year. Those two areas of revenue are expected to be sitting at $5.88 billion and $1.93 billion respectively, with total revenue increase predicted to be sitting at $7.92 billion and an EBIDTA of $1.65 billion.
T-Mobile's total number of adds for the entire year likely amounts to about 8.3 million subscribers according to the company, so it can basically be broken down to roughly 2 million new adds per quarter. We may end up hearing about most of the above mentioned data during tomorrow's earnings call minus the subscriber growth which they already posted, but analysts are also expecting parts of the call to focus on technology deployment for the new year, including potential talks over T-Mobil's plans for use of LTE-U which may have a possibility of seeing deployment sometime in 2015.
While the earnings call will mainly be for investors and the company itself, T-Mobile CEO John Legere will be including others by allowing them to ask questions during the call via a handful of different mediums like Twitter using a specific hashtag(#TMUSearnings)when tweeting to @TMobileIR. Anyone interested in participating in the earnings call can also ask questions by phone and beginning with this call they can now also ask questions via SMS. According to Legere, questions will be picked from these three areas and answered during the call to address any questions, issues or concerns that people may have. If you want to send a question to T-Mobile via SMS, you can send the texts to 313131 with the keyword TMUSQA with a space after it. Are you a T-Mobile subscriber?
