T-Mobile wraps up 2015 with a highlight video


The year 2015 was a big one for T-Mobile. We saw the launches of several new Un-carrier moves, the amping up of existing moves, T-Mobile passing Sprint to become the No. 3 carrier in the US, and more. And now that 2015 is coming to a close, T-Mo has put together a brief video that shows just how big its year was.

The video is only 1 minute and 31 seconds long, but it packs in just about every big move that T-Mobile made in 2015. There are Un-carrier actions like Binge On, T-Mo’s Extended Range LTE push, and the the addition of millions of new customers. And of course, John Legere and T-Mo couldn’t resist sneaking in a quick shot at AT&T and Verizon.

So yeah, 2015 was quite a year for T-Mobile. One of John Legere’s favorite phrases is “We won’t stop,” and I think it’s safe to say that will apply in 2016. Before we find out what T-Mo has in store for 2016, though, we have to celebrate the end of 2015. So whatever you’ve got planned for tonight, have fun and be safe, folks. See you next year.

    Ok now time to start removing all Edge and Hspa equipment and go to an all LTE network in 2016. Give people who need a new phone LG Leon’s. Id rather have NO signal than be stuck on Edge.

    • Acdc1a

      The remaining Edge markets are almost non existent. Traveling the length of I-75 our phones read E for a total of about 15 minutes. Areas that were flat out roaming are now full LTE signal.

          Really sure. I travel A LOT and it used to be the pits having T-Mobile. Not really sure why I stuck with them…but now it’s pretty rare to go anywhere that’s not covered with LTE.

        • Matt

          Do you have a band 12 capable phone?

        • Giro

          @ Matt yes I do I have a note 4 and also my wife have a S6…There still a lot of place in the big apple where T-mobile only have E-edge ..For example today I was in place call Ceasar Plaza by Belt parkway in brooklyn and my phone was constantly switch between Edge and Lte.Edge was dominant. I’m a field Tech so I travel a lot in NYC and I can list at least over 100 location where you only get edge…Don’t get me wrong I’m a T-mobile lovers but to say what AcDC1A ” The remaining Edge markets are almost non existen” Is kinda not an accurate statement…Is like those verizon fans that say my verizon phone works everywhere I have verizon as a work phone and I can take you places in the big apple where you get only 1x or no service at all where other carrier get full blown LTE..

        • Matt

          I know T-Mo isn’t perfect. I have to force my phone to WCDMA in my apartment. Otherwise, it will try to go between HSPA and LTE unreliably. I really want T-Mo to shutdown the HSPA network in my area so I can stay on LTE.

      • Matt

        I can vouch for this as I drive that area all of the time.

  • anshephe

    Ok T-Mobile let’s keep the momentum going and not turn to shareholders commands and keep customers first in 2016

  • Jason Caprio

    Coverage has definitely improved on an epic scale since I signed up with T-Mobile on Feb. 2014, however in many many highly populated areas, LTE speeds have plummeted. In a lightly populated area, I regularly get between 16 – 80Mbps on speed tests, however in very crowded areas, speeds are becoming nearly unusable. Last week I was at Universal Studios Orlando and all throughout the park I had a full LTE signal which was 20×20 wideband, yet speedtests showed an average of 0.1 – 0.5Mbps. This happens in my work area of Trenton, NJ, my home apartment complex in Bensalem, PA, as well random parts of Philadelphia, PA. 2016 better be the year that T-Mobile unclogs their congested network, because if I continually have slow speeds moving forward, I am going to sadly have to switch back to Verizon.

    • Acdc1a

      Like going to a football game or concert that’s going to happen. You went during the busiest time. I live 2 hours away and frequent the theme parks when the tourists are gone and service is good…and fast.

      Believe me when I say Verizon will have the same issue under the same circumstances.

    • Adam

      If ’15 was the year of low band expansion, ’16 might be the year of high band (LTE-LAA) expansion.

    • oksana

      noticed the same thing.i am in philadelphia and bensalem.lte speeds are way down compared to last year.guess all the iphones are causing more congestion.

      • Matt

        I’ve noticed speeds down some but it has not impacted video streaming quality, even with Binge On turned off. I don’t know how reliable those speed tests are anyway. Too many factors involved.

    • Hector Arteaga

      Don’t be surprised when you find yourself having the same issues on Verizon.

    • Jay J. Blanco

      I was in a large crowd last night on Verizon and only could call texts barley got through and Internet was unusable so be my guest I’m switching back to tmobile around tax time… I hate Verizon can’t believe I’m a customer again I left them in 2008 for tmobile

      • No one’s phone works on Midnight on New Years.

        Well… If you have an AT&T phone and microcell that allows you to keep neighbors off your microcell, you might stand a chance…

        But no one’s phone is going to work on the international telecom network “burp” we call New Years.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Well duh I’m stating In general each tower can only hold a certain amount of people so congestion on any top tier carrier network will result in the same thing happening…. unless they have the bandwidth microcells and maybe even a Moble tower at the event.

          There’s no way to get around congestion until carrier aggregation is implemented with wider channels and microcells

        • Verizon is a top-tier company for several reasons.

          And of course you know that they have millions more customers because they’re quite a bit more focused on delivering service.

          But when 300 million people and 7.1 billion people worldwide all want to say Happy New Year at the same time, (typically sync’ed to New York Time) of course things will become overloaded.

          But in 2016, just remember, T-Mobile really depends on Verizon, and Verizon is quite generous.

          Verizon’s sale of un-used band 12 airwaves gave T-Mobile coverage. This led to a great advertising budget for T-Mobile in 2015. Who knows what Verizon will do in 2016 to top the events of 2015. But perhapsVerizon will buy T-Mobile stock. If Verizon does this, T-Mobile might be able to abandon buying corporate-owned life insurance (sometimes called “dead peasants insurance”) on its employees, and also make good on paying business directors bonuses for hitting targets instead of letting them go before the bonus check is cut.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          And you must forget there are time zones so about 180 Million people at 12 was screaming happy new year… EST

          Verizon sold only because it’s deadlines to meet with the spectrum and they were more interested in capacity then anything esle in 2015. Hence the spectrum swaps between tmobile and verizon.

          Let not forget Verizon participates in dead peasant insurance… let alone wal mart…

          Tmobile doesn’t need Verizon there are plenty of other companies holding low band that are ready to sell… 61 Million customers proves tmobile doesn’t need Verizon

        • Walt

          Is it possible (in the future) for t-mobile to acquire 10×10 band 12 in areas that they only have 5×5? Then when the 600mhz auction happens they can bid on 10×10 600mhz where they currently dont have 700mhz.

        • Matt

          Many companies purchase dead peasant insurance. I wouldn’t single out Verizon and Wal-Mart.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          I singled wal mart because they are the largest retail employeer in the U.S. but of course there are dozens of companies that do dead peasant insurance

    • Myl35

      You will never get data at Universal Orlando with all the sound stages around. That is why Universal offers free WiFi at the park

  • Seems like if you want to make money in telecom, AT&T or Verizon is a wiser investment.

      What if you want to make the industry more competitive, what would you do then?

      • Acdc1a

        T-Mobile is after profits just like everyone else. Making the industry more competitive is a side effect of T-Mobile taking necessary steps to return to profitability.

        • Guest

          I know all that. I was just just asking a more general question of how an investor can contribute to the competitiveness in an industry, in other words: the unthinkable.

    • Matt

      TedBell is a Verizon troll.

      • Nah. I have a steakhouse where everyone is happy. Why aren’t you? It’s because you haven’t come to Beverly Hills yet..!

        Let me treat you.

    • Panzer

      I guess you don’t or you would have seen TMUS vs a VZ chart. VZ was nearly flat on the year where T-mobile was up $13.

  • vinnyjr

    My T-Mobile service has gotten better and better. My signal is very strong and download speeds are lightning fast. I’ve never been happier. I’ve tried the other Carriers and none even came close to the signal strength or data speeds of T-Mobile. I didn’t shop around for the cheapest service, I wanted the Strongest Signal and fastest data speeds, to me that’s what makes a great Wireless Carrier, Thank You T-Mobile, Thank You John Legere,

    • Matt

      You can’t beat the value offered. I have unlimited data and regularly use 15GB. It’s great!

  • bob

    atleast i would like to see 3 tmonews articles today.

  • Paul Garrison

    Verizon is now offering $650 to switch carriers. They will make it seem like this is an industry first.

  • guest

    wow no articles yet this guy is a joke
