Q2 profits are stats were released for many of the cellular carriers.
T-Mobile USA subscriber growth was slow in Q2 this year. It added only 668,000 net new customers in the second quarter, making its total subscribers 31.5 million. In the first quart it added 981,000 new customers which is the lowest add figure the company has had since second-quarter 2006.
Analysis suspect that the low growth is due to the fact that competitors Verizon and AT&T have high speed 3G data networks and T-Mobile does not.
On the other hand, US Cellular is profiting from strong growth in data. During the second quarter, it had a 45 % increase in data revenues totaling of $123.7 million. Service revenues were increased 9% percent for a total of $987.4 million.
