T-Mobile announced 3 major moves for the wireless industry this morning at its Un-carrier 9 event – Un-carrier for businesses, the Un-Contract, and Carrier Freedom.
For businesses, T-Mobile is offering lower rates for business users, increased pricing transparency, and a “our best price is our only price” motto. To start, businesses will pay $15 per line. For businesses that need more than 1,000 lines, the price is lowered to $10 a month. Each line comes with unlimited talk, text, and up to 1GB of LTE data. And no access fees. (more…)
This morning, the press events keep on coming. Now, T-Mobile is about to kick off its Un-carrier 9 event in NYC, detailing how the company is “rewriting the rules of wireless.” (more…)
Thought T-Mobile was done with Uncarrier moves? No, you didn’t. We didn’t either. But still, we wanted you to be aware that they have more to announce on March 18. (more…)
Keeping up its Uncarrier agenda, CEO John Legere took to T-Mobile’s blog, as well as YouTube, to announce Smartphone Equality, a new program that benefits every single T-Mobile customer who pays their bill on time. (more…)
In addition to unveiling rollover data, T-Mobile’s eighth Uncarrier move, the mobile provider gave an update on the state of its 4G LTE network. The rollout for LTE is apparently ahead of schedule.
In a blog post, Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray wrote that T-Mobile’s 4G – “recognized as the fastest in the nation” – now covers 260 million Americans, which surpasses the carrier’s initial goal by 10 million. That reach should extend to 280 million by mid-2015 and 300 million by the end of next year, if all goes according to plan. (more…)
T-Mobile unwrapped Uncarrier 8.0 this morning with the announcement that they will let customers rollover their high-speed 4G LTE data from one month to the next. They are calling it Data Stash, but it’s really just rollover for data. The idea is that you might only use 2GB of your 3GB plan this month, so you should get to keep that extra unused 1GB and use it in the next month. Get it? It’s rolling over to the next month. Well, in T-Mobile’s case, they are allowing you to “stash” it and then use it next month. (more…)
Tomorrow, at 7:30AM Pacific (10:30AM Eastern), T-Mobile and its CEO will sit down for a live webcast with Yahoo News to talk through their latest Uncarrier announcements, officially known as Uncarrier 8.0. As of right now, we don’t even have guesses as to what will be announced, but there will certainly be expletives, trash talking of other carriers, and plenty of magenta. Wait, isn’t that a bit early for Legere to be calling other CEOs fat? Maybe not. (more…)
In case T-Mobile’s Un-carrier 7.0 event did not make it clear, the wireless carrier is extremely committed to WiFi calling. Lest you were concerned the Nexus 6 would not support the carrier’s much-vaunted feature, you can now rest easy.
T-Mobile has confirmed in a press release that the Nexus 6 will gain support for WiFi calling in early 2015 after an over-the-air update. (more…)
