States came out with its third quarter earnings reports. The company posted a record growth in the number of subscribers for this quarter as a result of huge marketing campaigns.

The company expects to have 4a customer base of 4.3 million to 4.7 million in the current year. This figure is a big jump from the earlier estimated 3 million to 3.5 million.

The revenue increased by ten percent to $7.35 billion keeping parity with the forecast of Wall Street which figured it to be $7.4 billion.

A third-quarter loss of twelve cents per share was reported by the carrier, which was greater than a loss of five cents per share reported during the same time last year earlier when it shut down the unsuited MetroPCS networks both in Boston as well as Las Vegas.
