T-Mobile finally becomes the third-largest wireless carrier in US by surpassing Sprint sales.

T-Mobile has stolen the slot on the US wireless carrier chart from Sprint. The T-Mobile company has surpassed Sprint in sales. Thus T-Mobile effectively knocked Sprint off the number three slot on the chart. Right now T-Mobile is the third largest wireless carrier in the US.

So far in 2015 T-Mobile has had more than 2.1 million more customers. Now it has a grand total of 58.9 million customers in the latest quarter of 2015.

Sprint has added only 675,000 more customers to its list. Sprint has a total of 57.7 million customers so far in 2015. The results were finally announced for the latest quarter in sales on the 30th of June.

“Over the past year, Sprint has made meaningful progress in our turnaround by improving our network performance and enhancing our overall value proposition,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure.

“As a result, we hit significant milestones during the quarter by posting the company’s lowest-ever churn and recording postpaid phone net additions in both May and June, as well as for a third consecutive month in July. Going forward, we are confident in our plan to leverage our unique spectrum assets to make our network a competitive advantage, aggressively reduce operating costs, and utilize our business relationships and assets to fund our turnaround.”

So T-Mobile has successfully taken over Sprint’s position as the third largest wireless carrier in US. T-Mobile has taken the position behind Verizon Wireless and AT&T, who reign over the number one and number slots.

The CEO of T-Mobile John Legere had predicted the company would overtake Sprint by the end of 2014. But at the end of 2014 the CEO has backtracked saying the company will do so in 2015.

Since the company finally met its goals Legere took to Twitter to share the news with his followers. On Tuesday Legere threw shade at Sprint by mocking their moves for dropping on the number 4th slot.

T-Mobile has grown substantially since its merger with MetroPCS in 2013. The company added more than 15 million customers after the merger.

Sprint had been stuck at 55 million customers since 2011. Sprint only rose up to 57.1 million in the meantime gradually.
