T-Mobile US reported adding another 1.6 million new customers in the fourth quarter of 2013, and used its end-of-2013 results to trumpet the progress of its "uncarrier" initiatives, which it launched at the beginning of last year. Specifically, T-Mobile said it was able to garner 2 million branded postpaid net adds in 2013, ahead of its guidance of 1.6 million to 1.8 million, and that it earned 2013 adjusted EBITDA of $5.3 billion, directly in line with its previous guidance range of $5.2 billion to $5.4 billion.
