Editorial: Wireless Carrier Pricing – Stop the BS!
Mar 26, 2013 2:53 PM –
Taking the words straight from the mouth of T-Mo’s CEO John Legere, “Stop the bullshit,” at their press event today to unveil their new “Uncarrier” non-subsidized device plans, the iPhone 5 and new LTE markets. I’m sure you, like myself, agree that wireless carrier pricing and contract matrices are all screwed up. With how rapid new and exciting devices come out (at least yearly), you’re unfortunately locked into a two year agreement. Most carriers won’t cozy up to you until your 23rd month. Now that T-Mobile has dropped the bomb on competitors in the U.S. with going in the right direction as far as pricing structures for wireless devices and service- I wonder if this bold move will prompt the others to domino?
What are your thoughts? Think AT&T, Verizon and Sprint will eventually follow or will T-Mobile flop and be forced to revert back to old dealings? Chime in!
