Legere: “We are not an underdog brand”

Its growth and popularity since starting Uncarrier have been incredible. And many will put this boldness and success down to one person: John Legere. More often than not, tech reporters will come away from a T-Mobile press event with comments on the chief’s style and choice of language. … [read full article]

John Legere finally gets a reaction from Sprint CEO on Twitter

John Legere likes to berate the competition, quite publicly, on Twitter. And during the Superbowl event yesterday evening he took time to aim his jibes at Sprint’s commercials. Something which the CEO himself has said he does to try and get a response. This time he got one. Sort of. Half-assed commercial, half-assed data speeds. #typical @sprint. #SprintLikeHell — John Legere (@JohnLegere) February 2, 2015 In most cases, the … [read full article]

John Legere on 2015: The wireless revolution is speeding up to warp speed

I couldn’t help but think of Star Trek when reading John Legere’s forward-looking post for next year. Published a short while ago, T-Mobile’s CEO outlines what he sees happening over the next twelve months in the wireless industry. It’s certainly worth a read and doesn’t stop with just mobile phones and carriers. Of particularly interest to us though is his take on the state of the wireless industry. With T-Mobile having kicked … [read full article]

T-Mobile is CNN’s tech company of the year

Earlier today, CNN announced that it has named T-Mobile the U.S. tech company of 2014. Citing T-Mobile’s industry shake-up as the reason for winning the award, CNN acknowledges the superb products launched by other tech giants. But despite Apple announcing the iWatch and Apple Pay, Microsoft’s new lease of life under Satya Nadella and Facebook’s WhatsApp purchase, it was T-Mo who came out on top.

John Legere wishes everyone a “happy holidays” in his own UN-CEO style

While most wireless CEOs will send a corporately bland Christmas card to its staff and customers (if they’re lucky), John Legere has put his own spin on wishing us all a happy holiday season.
