T-Mobile's John Legere made more last year than either Verizon or AT&T's CEO

That's what everyone that wins the lottery says, and most of them end up bankrupt and broke.

Theres a good show called curse of the lotto, or something like that. Kinda funny how people always end up getting screwed over.

Wow, good for him, but maybe they should had invested some of the money on brand new cell towers.

They are still over pay rats doing nothing, I can't bet easy he didn't made any of TMobile new ideas, he just approve them.

if t-mobile's CEO wants the carrier to grow even more, he should've cut his salary by %50. it's still a lot of money and will make t-mobile slightly stronger and stable.

Why should anyone care how much a Ceo makes?

The more money the CEO makes, the more money the company has to take from the customers.

If John Legere works as the CEO of T-Mobile for ten years, that's $300M spent on one guy and his ability to make good decisions for the company.
From a T-Mobile shareholder point of view, maybe it is a good investment.
In the bigger picture of life, it fabulous weath for yet another CEO, while so many people are unemployed or underemployed.

CNN Money had listed the 12 top paid CEOs before taxes. Larry Ellison of Oracle was listed as number one and Randall Stephenson of AT&T was listed as number 12. No one inbetween was from a wireless carrier. So, unless CNN Money is incorrect, Randall Stephenson should be the highest paid Carrier CEO. Not John Legere. Not Dan Hesse.

For all the hate Verizon gets for being so expensive...this is a positive.....
Kinda explains why Verizon's network is always the highest ranked for overall satisfaction and service. Their CEO is actually putting that money back into the service....and not his pocket.

I wish I earn even 10% of that money a year.

Are you guys serious? 20, 30, 40 mil is chump change to these carriers. Really think Lowell Mcs 15.4 mill hurts anything? VZW and ATT each spend over 5 Billion a year on network upgrades and expansion alone ... a new tower is about 500k each ,,, so vzw has 31 less towers on the docket for one year ....
