Despite concerns over regulatory hurdles, SoftBank chief executive and Sprint chairman Masayoshi Son reiterated the need for a merger with T-Mobile and praised the fellow carrier at Recode's Code Conference in California Wednesday.
Looks like T-Mobile's goal to shake up the wireless industry is paying off. The carrier reported an incredibly successful first quarter, adding more subscribers than any other U.S. wireless service provider and overtaking Sprint as the No. 3 smartphone buyer.
The FCC may be on the front pages for its take on net neutrality but agency regulators quietly voted in a rule Thursday for the 2015 spectrum auction that has major telecom companies AT&T and Verizon steamed. Why? They won't be able to buy as much spectrum as they'd probably like.
It's a well-known fact that Latinos are some of the foremost consumers of mobile technology and T-Mobile aims to please with the announcement of a new wireless service with Univision called Univision Mobile.
A proposed rule that would reserve certain amounts of low frequency spectrums for smaller carriers at the 2015 FCC spectrum auction continues to come under fire from carriers AT&T and Verizon. Sprint and T-Mobile, they say, have chosen to dig themselves into their current holes and shouldn't get crutches.
T-Mobile seems to be the hottest neighbor on the block. Satellite TV provider Dish Network could step in to buy out the nation's fourth-largest wireless carrier if Sprint's plans to acquire the company don't go through.
T-Mobile ended domestic overage charges for customers last Monday and sparked a new wave of unrest among U.S. wireless carriers by asking others to follow suit. T-Mobile Vice President and General Manager for the Southeast Region Gabriel Torres spoke to Latin Post earlier this week and stressed how important the announcement is for consumers in general, and even more so for Latinos.
