    Sprint is a sh!tstorm, he says.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:13:16 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:13:48 PM
    Finding Sprint Spark is like a treasure hunt, he quips. It's also worse than our speed, he says.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:13:49 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:14:02 PM
    Sprint is deflecting criticism by focusing on a long-term lab project, he says.

    Ray talks about T-Mobile's acquisition of low-band spectrum. We're going to take that network with low band, and expand into homes, vacation destinations, other places.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:15:15 PM
    With low band, T-Mobile wants to expand and level the playing field and address coverage issues. Focus on best damn LTE network in the nation. We have the weapons to do that now, he says.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:15:28 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:15:45 PM
    Legere: What we have is a no-apology network.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:15:54 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:16:04 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:16:17 PM
    T-Mobile is sending a "cease and desist order" to AT&T to take down the fastest network claim, he says.

  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:16:30 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:16:30 PM
    Teases that he'll take a film crew to record him as he does it. I smell another commercial.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:16:35 PM
    Okay, now on to ETFs.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:16:45 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:16:49 PM
    ETFs are anti-consumer and restricts choice, he says
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:16:55 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:17:02 PM
    If a carrier isn't doing well, customers should be able to pick up and leave until it gets better.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:17:09 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:17:19 PM
    The ETF circle is part of the industry scam, with little transparency.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:17:34 PM
    We're going to force the industry to be more clear.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:17:49 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:17:52 PM
    Legere: This isn't a program. This one is here to stay. it's a fundamental part of our philosophy.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:18:02 PM
    This is the end of ETFs. The contract world we go away with this move, he says.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:18:17 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:18:27 PM
    I think the family plan on Verizon will be a fascinating experience to see, he says.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:18:46 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:18:55 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:19:10 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:19:15 PM
    So yep, T-Mobile is going to be buying out people from their contracts.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:19:31 PM
    The video shows people on Twitter talking about their contracts and ETFs.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:19:51 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:19:52 PM
    Starting tomorrow, everything changes, the video teases.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:20:04 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:20:22 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:20:43 PM
    T-Mobile will pay $350 of ETF per line, up to five lines.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:20:50 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:21:02 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:21:20 PM
    If you're with T-Mobile, you don't want any part of that AT&T incentive plan, which forces you to go to Next.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 9:21:33 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 9:21:43 PM
    Everyone at the three carriers should come over and check it out. If it doesn't work, AT&T will pay you to come back.
