T-Mobile CEO John Legere lets loose on AT&T’s buyback program

Legere

 

T-Mobile CEO John Legere has never been known as a quiet guy, this past week he let everyone know how he really feels about AT&T’s latest attempt to lure customers away with the promise of cold hard cash, to the tune of $450.  In 2011 AT&T had attempted to buy T-Mobile to immediately boost it’s customer base and improve cell coverage, however the Antitrust division of the United States Department of Justice announced that it would attempt to block the merger.  T-Mobile ended up gaining $4 billion dollars from the deal falling through. Legere has gone on to boast about how he is using the money to build a better network.

He takes some more jabs suggesting that AT&T must have had a disappointing Q4 and holiday season. Something big is coming from T-Mobile at CES, at least that’s what Legere wants us to think. We will have to wait and see. See what else Legere had to say below. What would you like to see T-Mobile announce at CES? Do you agree with AT&T’s plan to buy back customers? Let me know!

“This is a desperate move by AT&T on the heels of what must have been a terrible Q4 and holiday for them. I’m flattered that we have made them so uncomfortable! We used AT&T’s cash to build a far superior network and added Un-carrier moves to take tons of their customers – and now they want to bribe them back! Consumers won’t be fooled…nothing has changed; customers will still feel the same old pain that AT&T is famous for. Just wait until CES to hear what pain points we are eliminating next. The competition is going to be toast!”

-John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile USA
