T-Mobile USA is cutting a further 900 jobs as the carrier looks to revamp itself after the failed effort to sell itself to AT&T.
The No. 4 U.S. carrier said that it is eliminating some jobs and outsourcing others, while also staffing up in some areas, such as business sales. Parent company Deutsche Telekom has agreed to pump billions of dollars into the struggling carrier to help modernize its network and launch high-speed LTE service. At the same time, T-Mobile has continued to lose contract customers and has said it needs to better align its cost structure even as it tries to regain lost ground.
