John Legere’s 2014 resolutions for T-Mobile to “transform the wireless industry”, hint at Uncarrier 4.0

Of all the CEOs in the wireless industry, there are few that provide the level of entertainment offered up by our very own John Legere. If he’s not dressing as Santa and putting pieces of coal in the other carriers’ stockings, he’s teasing the upcoming announcements and having a dig at AT&T on Twitter.

Softbank purportedly in final stages of talks to acquire T-Mobile

One rumor that just won’t go away recently is the speculation surrounding Softbank/Sprint’s intention to buy Deutsche Telekom’s controlling share in T-Mobile U.S. And just because it’s Christmas Eve doesn’t mean that those rumors are going quiet. Recent information passed on to Nikkei (as reported by Reuters) suggests that Softbank is in the latter stages of discussions with Deutsche Telekom about buying the now-popular Uncarrier, T-Mobile.

So far, “pain points” already struck off … [read full article]

Verizon and T-Mobile close to spectrum deal according to Bloomberg

We’ve already seen reports claiming that Sprint is looking to buy T-Mobile, and now it’s rumored that Verizon and T-Mobile are close to a deal. Over the past few weeks, rumors of a VZW/Tmo deal have been gathering pace. We’ve known Verizon … [read full article]

WSJ: Sprint looking to buy T-Mobile US

I have to be honest, I’m not entirely sure what to make of this story, but I’m certain it’s going to create a lot of conversation and debate. According to the Wall Street Journal’s sources, Sprint is looking in to the possibility of buying out T-Mobile. This would obviously create one larger carrier capable of competing with Verizon and AT&T. Whether or not a purchase would go through is another … [read full article]
