T-Mobile has made some major changes to its network with its "Uncarrier" initiatives. Following phases that included ending device subsidies to cut monthly costs, free data on tablets, and free international roaming, T-Mobile may next attract customers by paying the fees associated with leaving another network.
DISH Network is taking a hard look at buying T-Mobile US as a way to enter the wireless industry, something that it failed to do when attempting to acquire Sprint. DISH may find itself in familiar territory because Sprint is also said to be considering a run at T-Mobile.
The end of 2013 is near, so it only makes sense that rumors would once again emerge of Sprint attempting to purchase T-Mobile. These rumors have started and stopped for several years now, but nothing has ever materialized. The rumors are back once again.
T-Mobile will be among the many retailers who will offer big Black Friday deals, and those deals will stretch into Cyber Monday. The fourth place carrier has announced that it will let customers secure a new phone with $0 down due at the time of purchase.
AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have announced that they will cease charging subscribers for premium texting services, most of which are nothing more than spam that tricks users into paying highly monthly fees for unwanted messages.
Sprint is the third-largest carrier in the United States; however, when it comes to the satisfaction levels of those millions of subscribers, the Now Network is rated as the worst carrier in the country, according to Consumer Reports.
T-Mobile US has spent much of the $4 billion it earned from the failed sale to AT&T on network improvements and completely altering its service plans in order to attract new customers. The fourth-largest carrier in the US has announced plans to sell $1 billion of Senior Notes that it will have to repay by 2022 and an additional $1 billion to be paid in 2024. Taking on the debt will allow T-Mobile to fund investments for its network and buy more licenses from spectrum holders and government auctions without compromising "financial stability."
Isis, the mobile payment joint-venture by three of the largest carriers in the United States, has officially gone nationwide today. After several delays and a lengthy testing phase in only two markets, consumers can now pay for items with their smartphones at thousands of locations throughout the US.
Sprint has announced that it has no plans to participate in the upcoming auction of H-block spectrum that the FCC is expected to hold early next year, leaving the door open for the only logical buyer to step in.
The Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini announced yesterday will arrive at all of the major carriers in the U.S. beginning next week. T-Mobile today announced something unique about its iOS tablets: customers can acquire them at no initial cost and get limited amounts of data for free.
