(Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc said on Wednesday it added 1 million net new monthly bill paying phone subscribers in the fourth quarter.
The company's shares were up about 1.5 percent at $68.79 in trading before the bell.
The report on subscriber numbers comes a day after Verizon beat Wall Street estimates for net new phone subscribers who pay a monthly bill, adding 650,000 customers in the fourth quarter.
In the quarter ended Sept. 30, T-Mobile exceeded analysts' estimates for net new phone subscribers and profit, driven by its competitive wireless plans and trade-in offers for iPhones aimed at fending off its bigger rivals.
