BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) -- T-Mobile USA Inc. is cutting 1,900 jobs nationwide as it consolidates its call centers.
The cellphone service provider said Thursday that it is making the moves to cut costs and remain competitive.
T-Mobile will cut the number of call centers from 24 to 17 by the end of June. The job cuts represent about half the number of people employed at the call centers. Affected employees will have a chance to transfer to remaining centers.
The company also said it will restructure other parts of its business during the second quarter. That includes plans it announced previously to modernize its network, add new technology and hire more sales staff.
T-Mobile is based in Bellevue, Wash., and is the smallest of the four nationwide carriers.
