Sprint’s Q4: subscribers up, churn down; still losing money

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I inform you that U.S. wireless provider Sprint, for the first time in thirteen quarters, has reported gains in post-paid subscribers. Ending its long drought, the Now Network added a total of 1.1 million new subs; 58,000 of which were post-paid. Sprint also reported a drop in churn during its earnings call, down to 1.86 in Q4 from 2.11 in Q3. It isn’t all good news, however. The company still posted a $929 million loss on revenues of $8.3 billion in Q4, or $0.31 per share. Sprint’s stock was trading slightly higher on the news.
