Prepaid carrier MetroPCS reported an addition of about 114,000 subscribers during its Q3. The carrier also posted a 70 percent increase in its EBITA year-on-year on total revenues of $557 million.

"It is noteworthy to point out that we've added these subscribers during our third quarter, which historically has been one of our seasonally slowest quarters characterized by lower net additions and higher churn," CEO Roger Linquist said. "In the past twelve months, we have grown our subscriber base by over one million subscribers."
