NEW YORK (Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc, the No. 4 U.S. mobile service provider, said on Thursday that its MetroPCS prepaid wireless business has doubled the number of markets where it operates, putting it head-to-head against smaller rival Leap Wireless in many of its new markets.
Both Leap, which agreed to be bought by No 2 U.S. mobile service provider AT&T Inc, and MetroPCS, which merged with T-Mobile less than three months ago, target cost-conscious customers who pay for calls in advance.
