(Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc added more postpaid subscribers in 2015 than it had projected as its lower-priced plans helped attract monthly users away from competitors.

For the year ended Dec. 31, T-Mobile on a net basis added 4.5 million branded postpaid customers, beating its forecast of 3.8-4.2 million.

The No. 3 U.S. wireless carrier said it added 2.1 million customers on a net basis in the fourth quarter, taking the full-year net customer additions to 8.3 million.
