ATLANTA-- AT&T Mobility's Ralph de la Vega says he isn't sweating the competition too much. De la Vega, CEO of AT&T's Mobile & Business Solutions Group, said the carrier takes what its competitors do seriously, including aggressive moves by T-Mobile US and Sprint, but is comfortable with its place in the industry and is confident it is ahead of other carriers on connected cars, homes and the Internet of Things.
T-Mobile US' new rate plans and offerings for businesses are likely going to have more success in the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market than with major corporations, where Verizon Wireless and AT&T Mobility are strongest, according to financial analysts.
T-Mobile US aims to deploy LTE in all of its 700 MHz A Block spectrum this year, according to T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray. However, he cautioned the carrier may not achieve that goal.
NEW YORK--T-Mobile US launched new plans aimed at business customers with a simplified rate structure that the company says will let it take away business from Verizon Wireless and AT&T Mobility.
T-Mobile US CEO John Legere reiterated his willingness to work with satellite TV provider and spectrum powerhouse Dish Network in some fashion.
Sprint and T-Mobile US seemed cautiously optimistic that the FCC's new net neutrality rules won't harm them and will protect the open Internet, while Verizon and AT&T were dismayed and characterized the FCC's action as misguided.
In a new filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, T-Mobile US said it inked a new employment agreement with CEO John Legere that extends the original term of Legere's employment from Sept. 22, 2015, to Sept. 22, 2017, and increases Legere's annual base salary to $1.5 million.
T-Mobile US CEO John Legere essentially said that T-Mobile has already passed Sprint in terms of subscribers if inactive Sprint MVNO customers are taken out of Sprint's subscriber count.
For months, financial analysts have been worried that T-Mobile US' surging subscriber growth would hinder its profitability. They're no longer quite so concerned.
T-Mobile US CEO John Legere thinks the FCC's recently completed AWS-3 auction was a smashing financial success for the U.S. Treasury but a "disaster for American wireless consumers" because he said AT&T and Verizon Wireless won the lion's share of the spectrum (Dish Network's bidding partners also won a major chunk of AWS-3 spectrum). Legere wants to make sure that doesn't happen in the 600 MHz incentive auction.
