Survey: T-Mobile, Verizon offer most “bang for buck”

Things have improved drastically for T-Mobile since the Uncarrier movement began last year. In that time, it’s shaken up the industry by ditching contracts, offering unlimited data for a great price and rolling out LTE at lightning pace to over 200 million PoPs. But all this is just a great collection of milestones and stats if it doesn’t impact the way consumers think. Thankfully, they’re in agreement. Not only have subscribers been joining … [read full article]

Magenta has fastest U.S. LTE network according to OpenSignal report

According to the most recent report published by OpenSignal, T-Mobile has the fastest LTE speeds on average in the States. Its average download speeds are 11.5Mbps, making it faster than AT&T’s 9.12Mbps, Verizon’s 7.82Mbps and Sprint’s mediocre 4.32Mbps.

Although it was one of the first countries to start building on the 4th gen networking technology, it’s one of the … [read full article]

T-Mobile Challenging Verizon In Brand Perception According To Research Firm

  According to data from at least one research firm, T-Mobile’s rebranding as the “Un-carrier” is working and working well.

T-Mobile Drops In American Consumer Satisfaction Index, Now In Fourth Place

I look at each of these studies and wonder if the questions were a little different or if we caught someone on a different day, would their answers have been different? What I can’t do is argue that T-Mobile continues to be on the losing end with a fourth-place finish on the new annual study from the American Customer Satisfaction Index. On a scale from 0-100 the overall score was a 72, a … [read full article]

T-Mobile Brings Up The Rear In New JD Power Wireless Purchase Experience Survey

I suppose on the one hand, when you’re in last place, there’s nowhere to go but up and that’s hopefully exactly what T-Mobile will do in the very near future. Still, even if T-Mobile makes a drastic turnaround in the future, it won’t erase the memory that T-Mobile is clearly in a customer service slump with a spate of last place finishes in recent JD Power surveys. The newest JD … [read full article]

Consumer Reports Says Verizon Top National Carrier, AT&T Worst

I wish I could start this post off by saying “what a difference a year makes.” Unfortunately, a new Consumer Reports survey places T-Mobile behind Sprint and Verizon, right in line with how they performed 12 months ago. The survey, which determines scores based on voice and data service quality, staff knowledge, and issue resolution show that Verizon continues to hold down the top spot, followed by Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T in last … [read full article]

(Updated With Clarified Statements From T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray) A Look At T-Mobile’s CES 2012 Booth, The Availability Of The iPhone, And A Look At Carly With Mr TmoNews Himself

Clarification from T-Mobile Regarding iPhone: Comments made by T-Mobile’s CTO, Neville Ray, regarding the evolution of chipsets to include additional bands were misconstrued. Mr. Ray was speaking generally to chipset advancements available to all phone manufacturers. T-Mobile has no knowledge of Apple’s product roadmap and our position on the iPhone has not changed.
