T-Mobile has made a number of announcements this year, under the “uncarrier” umbrella, that have totally redefined its way of doing business. It first announced the Jump! program, which was soon followed by AT&T, Verizon and Sprint with similar offers. T-Mobile subscribers don’t sign conventional two year service contracts now, the carrier allows them to upgrade their device while paying equal monthly installments for the device. Today, CEO John Legere hinted at yet another announcement, but didn’t say when we can expect to hear more about it.
In his tweet, Legere says that “#ItsAboutCustomers” and that its time to remove another “pain point” that customers have to endure on their carriers. “Time for #Uncarrier4?,” Legere asks. It is too soon to speculate right now exactly what this announcement is related to. The tweet itself doesn’t offer any hints as to what and most importantly when we can expect Legere to make this announcement. Another “uncarrier” move that T-Mobile made earlier this year was opening up unlimited 2G global data roaming at no extra cost. These moves were much appreciated, so there’s no doubt in the fact that subscribers and the industry are looking forward to what T-Mobile has in store next. On a separate note, Sprint might be looking to buy T-Mobile.
