Dish Network is looking to pick up T-Mobile if the Sprint merger fails

Although Dish Network is not interested in entering an bidding war for potential suitors, the satellite television company is primed and ready to snag T-Mobile if the Sprint merger falls apart this summer. Bloomberg reports that Dish has been eyeing both DirecTV and T-Mobile in recent months, but as DirecTV shares have risen amid talk of an AT&T acquisition, the rival provider has become too expensive to chase.

AT&T really doesn’t want you saying it’s in a price war with T-Mobile

Is AT&T feeling the heat from the “Uncarrier?” Not if AT&T CFO John Stephens is to be believed. CNET reports that Stephens told an investor conference on Thursday that all of the talk about AT&T being in a “price war” with T-Mobile is just media hype and that the company isn’t under pressure to react to moves being made by the scrappy carrier that has shook up the wireless industry over the last year.

Sprint attempts to rewrite the T-Mobile merger as a boon for consumers

Sprint hasn’t had any luck moving forward with its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile so far, but CEO Dan Hesse is doing everything he can to spin the merger as a beneficial for the market as a whole. In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Hesse claimed that a bigger No. 3 provider would force the top 2 to remain competitive, rather than continuing to compete in an unsustainable price war. More →

Legere makes a bold prediction about T-Mobile’s future

It’s safe to say that T-Mobile CEO is feeling pretty cocky after his carrier reported adding 2.4 million net new customers last quarter alone. In an interview with Yahoo Tech, Legere predicts that T-Mobile’s momentum will only grow over the next year and he thinks that the “Uncarrier” will have 75 million subscribers by this time next year.

Found by a Redditor, the page offers potential buyers more details about the “modern compass” that was the G1. More →

It won’t be long before T-Mobile overtakes Sprint as America’s No. 3 wireless carrier

While Verizon and AT&T have traditionally been the two biggest players in the U.S., Sprint and T-Mobile have almost always been stuck behind in third and fourth place, respectively. However, T-Mobile’s big “Uncarrier” surge over the last year is threatening to shake up the traditional order and make it, not Sprint, America’s No. 3 wireless carrier. More →

T-Mobile adds more customers in Q1 than all other carriers combined, but swings to loss

T-Mobile on Thursday morning reported its results for the first quarter of the year, marking the first time the scrappy carrier added more than 2 million net new subscribers in a single quarter. The nation’s No. 4 wireless service provider said that it added a total of 2.4 million net new customers in Q1, yet another clear sign that its “Uncarrier” plans and marketing initiatives are catching consumers’ attention. All of that marketing came at a hefty price, however, and T-Mobile posted a loss of $151 million in the quarter. More →

T-Mobile’s network is getting better, but not for the reason you think

T-Mobile knows it has more work to do to improve its network and GigaOM reports that it’s going a step beyond just upgrading mobile data speeds. According to GigaOM, the Pride of John Legere has started installing antennae that use 4-by-2 multiple input-multiple output (4×2 MIMO) technology, which the publication says has the potential to make T-Mobile’s LTE network vastly better for end users, even if it does nothing to boost speeds.

T-Mobile trolls BlackBerry again, offers BlackBerry users a sweet deal on Samsung phones

T-Mobile under CEO John Legere never, ever stops trolling. Now that BlackBerry has decided to completely cut the “Uncarrier” off from selling its devices, 9to5Google points out that T-Mobile has decided to hit back by giving yet another special offer to BlackBerry fans by offering them gift cards of up to $200 if they switch to a new Samsung smartphone such as the Galaxy S5 or the Galaxy Note 3. This isn’t a short-term offer, either: Any T-Mobile customers who bought a BlackBerry at any time up until April 3rd this year can take advantage of this deal from now until the end of the year.

More evidence that T-Mobile is putting a scare in the wireless industry

It used to be that Verizon and AT&T could happily divvy up new subscribers every quarter while perpetual losers T-Mobile and Sprint would see their subscriber numbers shrink. Slowly but sure, however, T-Mobile’s “Uncarrier” campaign has helped reignite its growth and has made things significantly less comfortable for America’s two largest wireless carriers. More →
