T. Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG (PINK:DTEGY), has been having a rough time to say the least lately.
To start, the U.S. Department of Labor recently ordered the company pay a fired whistleblower more than $345,000.
The fired mployee had raised concerns about the “possibility of millions of dollars in fraudulent roaming charges being levied on hundreds of international corporate customers,” according to The Associated Press.
T-Mobile plans to appeal the order, though.
But its troubles don’t end there. The company also lost 557,000 phone subscribers in the second quarter, and saw a net loss of 205,000 subscribers — a record for the period.
Plus, smartphone sales were flat at just over 11 million as revenue fell around 9%. Verizon (NYSE:VZ), AT&T (NYSE:T) and Sprint (NYSE:S), on the other hand, have all seen subscribers increase and seen better smartphone results.
