Liveblog: T-Mobile Uncarrier X announcement

T-Mobile continues its seemingly unstoppable venture to disrupt the American wireless industry. From free streaming music, to no-contract plans, to now offering personal LTE-micro-cell-sites, Team Magenta, led by CEO John Legere, has adopted a take-no-prisoners approach when standing up to the competition.

By just about any measure, the effort has been successful. The carrier turned around its subscriber losses, and within a few fiscal quarters, it turned into a cash-positive asset for its Germany-based parent company, Deutsche Telekom. Even more remarkable, is how T-Mobile USA has executed this strategy with a largely passive presence from the team in Europe.

Now, PhoneArena.com is Los Angeles, California for the latest chapter in T-Mobile's Uncarrier saga. The company touts, "we never hit pause," meaning it is continuing to dig into market disruptive ideas in an effort to continuing gaining market share in the highly saturated US market.

What do you think the soft-spoken outspoken John Legere will announce to the masses this morning? We will share the news with you as it happens, keep your browser open as we liveblog the festivities.

T-Mobile's Uncarrier X announcement is scheduled to begin at 11:00am PT | 1:00pm CT | 2:00pm ET | 7:00pm GMT!

Why don't they just make it unlimited full speed data for everyone then?

It lets them keep charging for other things and be generous. If some new xyz service comes out, they don't have to immediately make it unlimited. Tethering and bit torrent come to mind.

Ditto on that, some people are never happy unless it's absolutely free.

They'll complain if it's cheap, free, or if they're being paid! It's a passion.

Im sure it's coming, Google Play Music wasn't on Music Freedom at first, and it got added later. If you watched the event they specifically said if YouTube wanted to join the program they would welcome them.

My guess is this would take too much work for YouTube to bother, especially since they still have limited profitability. They'll probably hop on later if the program is successful.

If more people are viewing YouTube videos because it doesn't count against their cap that means more videos are being seen, which means more ads are being seen, which YouTube wants.

For plans that are 3GB and up :( Oh well, at least they doubled everyone's data so my 1GB became 2GB.
