As Deutsche Telekom reports today, in the first quarter of 2007, T-Mobile International raised its customer number to over 109 million, an increase of nearly 25 percent compared to the same period the previous year. And most impressive is the fact, that T-Mobile USA provided the highest customer growth here.
But T-Mobile also satisfied with the success of its mobile data strategy and continues to successfully execute it. In Europe, T-Mobile counted 2.2 million customers of its (unique) web'n'walk product, which offers full access to the Internet (and isn't limited to WAP-based services like Vodafone live!, O2 Active or i-mode).

The number of web'n'walk users increased by 206,000 customers in the first quarter. Non-voice revenues excluding SMS and including T-Mobile USA went up 31 percent year-on-year, increasing from 321 million to 422 million Euro in the first quarter (which is, on the other hand, a data ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) of around 3.9 Euro per customer only - compared to the overall ARPU of more than 31 Euro for T-Mobile Germany).

T-Mobile USA added about 980 thousand customers in the first quarter. That brings its customer number to over 26 million. The attractive myFaves service is the most successful offering of T-Mobile USA and the key reason for the increase in high-quality customers. In January, T-Mobile USA received the highest ranking in the customer care study from J.D. Power and Associates for the fifth consecutive period.

T-Mobile Germany added 251,000 new customers for its T-Mobile@home product, raising the T-Mobile@home customer base to 1.41 million. T-Mobile@home enables cheaper incoming and outgoing calls close to landline price level within a predetermined area.

T-Mobile UK reports significant year-on-year growth in revenue and EBITDA.
Revenues went up 12.9 while EBITDA was up 34.9 percent. T-Mobile UK is currently the only UK mobile operator to have deployed HSDPA fully across its 3G network with over 3 Mbit/s currently being rolled out. Its 3G network reaches over 84 percent of the population.
