The communications services company reported its highest consolidated operating income in over seven years at $519 million during Q2 2014. Despite a net loss of 181,000 postpaid customers during the reported quarter due to expected elevated churn levels related to service disruption associated with the company's ongoing network overhauling, Sprint platform's gross postpaid customers grew by 16% year-over-year compared to the year-ago quarter.
