Postpaid vs. Prepaid churn rate

Churn rate is defined as a monthly percentage of customers who discontinue their subscription to the service during a specific period. T-Mobile USA uses churn to gauge customer retention and loyalty, which is useful information for evaluating the operating performance of a business.

While the postpaid contract is the most popular subscription type, the company also offers prepaid services. The prepaid subscriber churn rate was higher than that of postpaid customers, by almost three percent in the second quarter in 2019. Still, it is the lowest percentage the company has seen for this subscription type in the last seven years.
