T-Mobile strikes back at AT&T with newspaper ads

T-Mobile strikes back at AT&T with newspaper ads
AT&T has started taking shots at T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network and now T-Mobile is ready to respond. The nation’s fourth largest carrier, T-Mobile, is getting more aggressive defending its 4G network.

And while it is not yet certain whether we’d indeed see those ads run in the press chances are T-Mobile will approve them soon and if all plays out as expected, they can even end up in tomorrow’s papers.

AT&T has fired at T-Mobile for not offering a data service as fast as its 4G LTE service, but on the other hand T-Mobile says it’s got brilliant coverage and nothing to be ashamed of. Take a look at T-Mobile’s counter-ads right below.

Simple. For the extra bandwidth and towers. Not for the coverage.

TMo is crazy. Its not like AT&T woulda dumped their existing network and towers for T Mo's...they would combined everything into one.

Towers are the answer! T-Mobile has the lowest usage per tower! so do u buy or lease land build towers or try to buy them for cheap! Plus why has T-Mobile's parent company publicly stated that they wanted to sell T-Mo multiple times and after no one wanted to buy them and Att wasn't allowed to buy them now they are like "were the best"! No guys u tried and were left wanting... just accept your role and shut up! Aka...your role is the joke of the industry! Wait my bad that's Sprint! Or Softbank or whatever the name of the Japanese company that bailed them out of bankruptcy...

We need T-Mobile and Sprint to remind Verizon and At&t that there are competitors out there. These smaller carriers remind the big ones that we're willing to pay more for better service but if you take it to far the roles will be reversed when people jump ship.

In the end, Verizon is the winner :)

LOL "If AT&T thought our network wasn't great, why did they try to buy it?" This one is a classic... Can't find a comeback better than this one.

The ads are funny, but the fine print in two of the ads seems to contradict itself. On one hand they say "don't take AT&T's word for it, OR OURS FOR THAT MATTER", then in the next sentence they direct you to a t-mobile.com site for information.

Cause TMO couldn't run the Spectrum or site assets properly, and they can't run a decent network!!! AT&T wouls be able to use this specturm, assests and customer base and create a real network!

Yeah, because I like the idea of AT&T being a super carrier as much as Verizon. Move along, one day you'll understand why the FCC occasionally makes a good decision in the consumers best interest.

every carrier has itas flaws. I have AT&T and despite what the critics say, I like the service. I have the ability to talk and surf the internet on my phone at the same, which is huge for me and why i chose AT&T There are those who are not going to like what I said about AT&T, but I never said that AT&T have no issues whatsoever. Tmobile and AT&T are acting like 2 hungry kids asking for the last chocolate cake. this back and forth crap needs to stop. Focus on making your service better not spending money on ads telling us who's better than the other

You'll eat crow (or join all the same expert "analysts" and "investors" that seem to know what every company, especially Apple, are going to do next).

Tmobile is comedy only network to let you do free wifi calling. An their switching to no contract. Plus they're cheaper then everybody else and hspa+ is dam good in some areas faster then LTE. Money well spent an that extra $30 you'll save instead of using at&t/verizon basjcally pays 1/3 of your phone bill. Thats how you make the top2 sweat displaying value
