I have to agree with John Legere. Allowing Crapizon & AT&T to hog up all the low band spectrum means they get to shaft consumers even more. Dumb & Dumber have enough low band spectrum. Save some for Sprint & T-Mobile.

omg shut up.. all you have is shit to talk about the other guys… and your price is only a $7 cheeper than at&t or VZ. plus t-mo tryed to sell twice once to att and sprint and now dish. your business must be in trouble if you need to sell.

And what about the "smaller" spectrum based devices that may reside in high class areas of the country that are not talked about?  Like AT&T MicroCells or Sprints AirWave Access – a.k.a. Cell Phone Signal Boosters?  I used to have one for both AT&T and at my office when I left and committed with Sprint for awhile. I am with T-Mobile currently, and have yet to need one.

Now  I wanted better calling signals in areas of California that still have cellular dead-spots, and efficient management of my data plan.   Bad experience with both carriers, Sprint mostly….What was uncanny about the devices was that they worked better when placed the router looking unit near a window at the same time as it was physically connected to my home router!

I imagined a better creative  approach would have taken off – by having consumers participate in a choice of carriers and that competitiveness – only yet  from one topology – like the wheel has been for vehicles. 

I live in Bel Air California.  I work hard and pay my due diligence to society, and hold myself accountable for my role in my community.  In the past, we have been  physically satisfied with  a topology that was nearly future-proof, had  a great design, a reliable  network, and minimal physical effect to just about what my community wants to do. Kind of like power and waste is for any neighborhood.  Along comes an opportunity to have a better network, yet it requires  a plan that allows much physical, and especially visual discomfort to the neighborhood!  As a group, my neighborhood unanimously has decided not to take advantage of this "better network"   – thus no cellular towers or antennae(s) due to the consequences to the environment and fellow humans in this community.  Yet there is a device that could independently allow me or any other member of Bel Air that can still make use the EXISTING physical topology 

Carriers have to invest in more natural innovations of technology which allows effective independence.  We are nearing the age of some  companies being completely automated – that may be our demise, if not approached correctly.  Positive and valid forms of accountability by accepting 1 platform – satisfies the assurance of fairness.

That will invoke competition we need. 
Be humble in spirit, like if Verizon or T-Mobile were holding a charity basketball game: – that attitude is still competitive  (charity basketball game – not the NBA finals), yet no matter what, the loser will never feel true failure (loser accepts accountability, and sparks the wheels of future competition).
–  uses an agreed foundation of a future-proof topology (the basketball) 

Perhaps I am wrong, for assuming that Carriers are like some american law enforcement.  When confronted in situations of authority  that is "tense" behaves not as a public servant; when confronted with a human that knows a tad bit more about the law, and missing the point of being humble. For that individual is indirectly paying for the career YOU chose. 

I like Googles approach where they making an valid start  – by representing respect…. a carrier that will basically ask permission from the forefathers to use their existing methods of cellular best practices – and begin with creating the "telephone" to go along with their improved service – hoping their service is the physical phone itself..   So that an educated customer does  not have to consume more battery, or micromanage between two internal antennas where one uses more battery than the next.

T- Mobile Rocks. I have been using T-Mobile for past 12 years….only company in wireless that cares about it's customers. AT&T , Verizon are thugs who steel your hard earned money. FCC GIVE T MOBILE MORE 600 MHZ SPECTRUM and help customers

Let's see how long T-mobile can bleed itself to sustain this price war. Legere's not wrong, but he's trying to make money just like AT&T and Verizon. If his company were in one of their shoes, he'd be doing the same thing. More competition is better of course, but don't call him a hero, he's just playing the hand he's got (well). Verizon still has a better, more contiguous network btw.

Competition and innovation is the key to a great economy.

T-Moble needs A LOT more spectrum to compete with Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile actually has many partnerships and roaming agreements that are costing the carrier revenue – Eventually, T-Mobile will need to break out and become an independent carrier to compete so spectrum is important. As long as T-Mobile is on the course that its on, I'm not sure why the FCC won't just cut T-Mobile a deal and hand over spectrum.

I love this guy

He talks a lot of shit for someone that doesn't live up to what his company says. I almost believe him but then my speeds started slowing down and remember his dumb and dumber 2 is never as good as the first one.
