The carrier managed to add 535,000 tablet users in the first quarter propelling its overall customer number. Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) has lost some postpaid consumers mainly because of the network disruptions and its average monthly subscriber bill fell by 3.3% on the year to $62.07. However, the company is hopeful about its new Sprint Spark Service and can even improve the postpaid customer base with the completion of system upgrades.

“We reached several key milestones for the company this quarter, including largely completing a multi-year project to upgrade our core 3G and voice network, expanding 4G LTE coverage to approximately 254 million people and launching nationwide availability of HD Voice,” the CEO of Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S), Dan Hesse, was quoted as saying in a statement.

Further, the company is ready to launch attractive calling plans such as the pay-as-you-go plan announced today under the Virgin Mobile Businesses. The company is aiming to add more postpaid towards the end of the year.
