John Legere reveals his 2014 resolutions for T-Mobile
posted by Alan F. / Jan 02, 2014, 12:19 AM
Legere has already hinted that something huge is coming at CES. Perhaps there is something in his 2014 resolutions list for T-Mobile that will give us a hint of what UNcarrier 4.0 could be. According to the obvious bit of self-promotion (not that we're judging, mind you), Legere writes that in 2014, T-Mobile will transform the wireless industry.
Among the resolutions he has for this year, Legere wants T-Mobile to "continue to remove customer pain points," go faster and louder with LTE, and "un-shackle the family from those other guys." He also adds that he wants T-Mobile to "make waves" at CES 2014. What happened last year at CES sort of ties in with the last resolution in which he jokingly questions whether or not to give AT&T a break. You might recall that at last year's show, Legere called AT&T's network "crap".
T-Mobile has been so darn innovative that we can't wait to see what John Legere has in store for CES. The good news is that we are only days away from the start of this year's show. And when you want to know what is going on at CES 2014, just keep it right here for the latest news and coverage on new phones, tablets and accessories.

This man should be the prime example of what a true CEO should be like. Customers come first, not greed.

if they are around at that time, i seen this same thing at US Cellular, they are only doing this because they are small, if they were big as At&t and Verizon all this stuff wouldnt stick around, they would go out of business, but say as you must...history will repeat itself. Remember when Sprint gave away all the goodies? Loyality programs and the such, then they gained a lot of subscribers, then they got rid of it all because it wasnt affoardable, and it is illegal for a company to "buy out" a contract, it would be something of the lines of bill credits that cover the cost of breaking a contract. whichever is better, like i said sprint had the same thing and they had to stop it cuz of the cost. You wont see At&t and Verizon do this because they dont need to...they are investing so much money in their networks that Tmobile will be behind...but as i said..we shall see how this plays out...IF they are still around.

How about ending the pain of charging for using the phone as a hot spot?

Easily avoidable. Root or Jailbreak your phone.

I went from unlimited everything w/ no tether to unlimited everything with 2gigs tether for exactly the same price with T-Mobile this year! I'd say they have that covered. All I had to do was take a visit to my local store and 5 minutes later I was out with 2gb tether on my plan.

Cellular networks cannot withstand to become a "wifi replacement" its not nonsenes its common sense, look up cellular networks and spectrum and then after you do that you look up T-Mobile's holdings in spectum and then the math will teach you that they cannot handle such amount, i wanna know what happens when they actually start gaining real customers. that boat they have isnt big enough

I'm in, Mr. Legere. I'm just DONE with AT&T, regardless of their coverage and speeds. I just have to wait until one of my lines drops a little more on the ETF, and then it is "Sayonara, Death Star."
