Uncarrier 4.0 was 2014′s biggest T-Mobile move according to you

Towards the end of last year, we started hearing from our sources that T-Mobile was planning to launch an awesome Uncarrier move at CES. And sure enough, at en event in Las Vegas last January, John Legere and T-Mobile made waves. If it wasn’t the AT&T Macklemore concert that got your attention, T-Mobile offering to pay off your Early Termination Fee to switch probably did. It was a big move, and one which … [read full article]

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.

FCC agrees with T-Mobile’s request for clearer data roaming rules

Earlier this year, T-Mobile petitioned the FCC to make changes to its data roaming agreement guidelines. Complaining that the Commission’s current rules are too vague, and could lead to companies like AT&T charging smaller carriers exorbitant amounts for national data roaming.

After failed T-Mobile bid, Iliad’s Xavier Niel turns to Swiss carrier

It doesn’t seem like that long ago when we couldn’t go a week without hearing new rumors of who was going to buy Deutsche Telekom’s controlling stake in T-Mobile US. You may remember at one point a French carrier, Iliad, tried its luck. Sadly for the European telecoms company, neither Deutsche Telekom nor T-Mobile were interested in the offer.

Uncarrier 8.0 takeaway: T-Mobile’s network announcements were far more important than rollovers

T-Mobile’s Data Stash may – in the words of John Legere – be “arguably the biggest thing we’ve ever done since Uncarrier 1“, but other announcements caught my attention more. I’m not belittling the new data rollover scheme. Simply re-emphasizing the truth: Without a killer network, a great offer isn’t worth anything. Sprint has found that out to its own detriment.  In a blog post, T-Mo’s network guru, Neville Ray [read full article]
