T-Mobile also announced Wednesday that its high-speed 4G LTE network now reaches 200 million people in 233 metropolitan areas. Legere said the company’s network might not be as good as rivals in every rural pocket in the U.S., but it’s fast in major cities.
The company also announced a multi-year promotional deal with the singer Shakira, who was the headline performer at a T-Mobile announcement event in New York on Wednesday evening. Company officials would not disclose financial terms of the deal.
T-Mobile has its headquarters in Bellevue, Wash., and is under the control of Germany’s Deutsche Telekom AG.
