The growth in the number of new customers in our United States operating segment remained strong. T-Mobile US saw a net increase of 13.3 million in its customer base, bringing the figure to 46.7 million at December 31, 2013. This increase was driven by the acquisition of 8.9 million customers following the first-time inclusion of MetroPCS in May 2013 and 4.4 million customers from organic growth. Total revenue grew 20.7 percent to EUR 18.6 billion. This was partly due to an increase in handset sales, which compensated for the decrease in service revenues. Adjusted EBITDA increased slightly by 0.9 percent from EUR 3.8 billion in the prior year to EUR 3.9 billion in the reporting year.
