T-Mobile US Inc on Wednesday raised its subscriber growth forecast for the second time this year as the wireless carrier's relatively cheaper plans lured customers reeling from decades-high inflation.

The company expects to add net monthly-bill paying subscribers of between 6 million and 6.3 million in 2022, up from a prior forecast of 5.3 million to 5.8 million.

T-Mobile's decision not to raise prices for its wireless plans has helped it rake in more customers in a price-conscious market, while rival telecom companies AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc have had to raise rates to combat higher costs.

The carrier added 723,000 subscribers in the second quarter, much above FactSet estimates of 573,100.
