T-Mobile Binge On Net Neutrality

T-Mobile is fixing the wireless industry by hurting the open Internet

T-Mobile is fixing the wireless industry by hurting the open Internet

As a diehard Batman fan, T-Mobile CEO John Legere will appreciate this simile: Right now T-Mobile reminds me a little bit of the Joker in the first Tim Burton Batman movie tossing out free money to the people of Gotham only so he can hit them with poison gas once they’re all gathered in one place. OK, so I obviously don’t think Legere and company are literally evil and planning to gas us all. But I’ve spent a day thinking through the implications of the “Un-carrier’s” new “Binge On” move and I find myself feeling a real sense of unease about the whole thing. Basically, I think that Binge On sounds like a great deal that could also incur some serious trade offs that will make the web less open that it is today. More →

T-Mobile unveils ‘Binge On,’ a bold move that offers uncapped video streaming

T-Mobile on Tuesday unveiled its new “Un-carrier X” initiative called “Binge On,” a new plan that will let you stream some of the most popular video services over its network without counting against monthly data limits. T-Mobile is starting off with 24 of the most popular video streaming services and it says it’s open to any other video provider that wants to join in. T-Mobile also says that it doesn’t charge any money to video services so smaller players don’t have to worry about getting priced out of the program. More →

iPhone 6s Upgrade Program T-Mobile Sprint

Apple’s iPhone upgrade program looks like bad news for Verizon and AT&T

Apple’s iPhone upgrade program looks like bad news for Verizon and AT&T

When Apple announced the iPhone 6s in early September, the company also introduced a new payment system called the iPhone Upgrade Program. Apple’s iPhone financing scheme is similar to what many carriers are already offering, with pricing starting at around $32 per month for the 16GB iPhone 6s. However, Apple also includes an AppleCare warranty in its offer and the iPhone comes factory unlocked, meaning the customer can choose any carrier in the world for wireless service.

A new report indicates that some carriers are already profiting from Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program, especially smaller ones such as T-Mobile and Sprint. More →

T-Mobile is still turning the mobile world on its head, smashing all rival carriers

T-Mobile released its third-quarter earnings report on Tuesday and despite some investor angst about missing its EPS consensus estimate, it’s clear that the “Un-carrier” is still shaking up the wireless industry and is posting post-paid subscriber additions that are the envy of the mobile world. For some more context on just how well T-Mobile is doing, let’s go to BTIG analyst Walter Piecyk, who posted some striking numbers comparing T-Mobile’s performance to its rivals on Twitter this morning.

T-Mobile currently has a plane writing customer complaints over Verizon’s HQ

Verizon has millions of loyal subscribers who love its network but are nonetheless not pleased with its policy of charging you extra money if you go over your allotted monthly data limit. T-Mobile, which never misses an opportunity to troll rivals, sent out a plane to skywrite this particular grievance over Verizon’s headquarters on Monday, although Verizon had some first-rate comebacks of its own.

Comcast T-Mobile Merger Rumor

C-Mobile: Buying the ‘Un-carrier’ would be Comcast’s ultimate revenge

C-Mobile: Buying the ‘Un-carrier’ would be Comcast’s ultimate revenge

Comcast is a bit of a wounded beast right now. It’s still smarting from a pair of embarrassing defeats over net neutrality and its failed Time Warner Cable merger. Not to mention, its reputation remains in the gutter after several instances of its poor customer service went viral thanks to customers who recorded their phone calls with the cable giant. But you can’t keep a good corporate super villain down, which is why I’m not surprised to hear speculation that Comcast will make a big splash in the wireless market by buying T-Mobile. More →

Watch out, Verizon: Sprint and T-Mobile are making big progress in NYC

Sprint and T-Mobile offer some incredible wireless deals. The downside, however, is that they’ve traditionally offered inferior service compared to Verizon and AT&T. However, RootMetrics’ latest study of all four major wireless carriers in New York City has found that Sprint and T-Mobile are improving by leaps and bounds in the Big Apple. More →

Cheap iPhone 6s T-Mobile

How T-Mobile fixed one of Apple’s major iPhone ‘problems’

How T-Mobile fixed one of Apple’s major iPhone ‘problems’

The newest iPhone is probably the most expensive smartphone you can buy this fall, even if you choose the cheapest options Apple offers — in this case, the 16GB iPhone 6s. But that feeling may have changed in recent years, at least in the U.S., where T-Mobile made the iPhone an affordable proposition to smartphone buyers on a tighter budget. And in the process, the carrier “fixed” one of Apple’s iPhone “problems.” More →

iPhone 6s Sales T-Mobile

iPhone 6s pre-orders are up over 30% at T-Mobile

iPhone 6s pre-orders are up over 30% at T-Mobile

One would think that analysts and pundits, after so many years of predicting a decline in iPhone sales, might someday come to their senses and stop betting against Apple. Every year, we’re bombarded with predictions and dire warnings that iPhone sales have topped out, that Apple’s spigot of innovation has becoming increasingly less potent and interesting. And yet, every year, without fail, Apple manages to shatter every existing iPhone sales record.

With the iPhone 6s set to hit stores this Friday, all indications point to Apple proving the pundits wrong and having another monster hit on its hands.

iPhone 6s Deals Cheapest Price T-Mobile

T-Mobile’s insane iPhone 6s deals just got even better: $5 per month with iPhone trade-in

T-Mobile’s insane iPhone 6s deals just got even better: $5 per month with iPhone trade-in

It’s hard to believe T-Mobile was once the only major U.S. carrier not selling the iPhone in stores, considering how insane its iPhone 6s offers are. The ‘uncarrier’ has some of the best iPhone 6s prices in the world – we already told you how good they are – but things get even better if you’re willing to trade in a functional iPhone or other smartphone. The newer the device, the more money you’ll save, and you may end up spending as little as $5 per month for a new iPhone 6s.

T-Mobile’s “Jump on Demand” offers are even better than Apple’s installments plan, and competitors will likely have no choice but to adjust to these new pricing schemes. More →
