T-Mobile USA has announced hitting the 25 million subscriber milestone. The carrier is still the smallest of the four nationals by a long shot, but is adding customers at a fast clip. Cingular, the nation's largest carrier, recently announced surpassing 60 million subscribers.

T-Mobile made the customer announcement along with its Q4 2006 earnings statement. Several interesting metrics were included:

  • 900k net new customers in Q4; nearly 800k of those were post paid
  • 1.6 million "converged device" users (BlackBerry and Sidekick)
  • Churn remained the same versus the year ago period
