T-Mobile Uncarrier press conference

T-Mobile is expected to talk more about its new no-contract plans and provide an update on its 4G LTE plans.

    I have no problem telling you an example of abusive use, Legere says.
  • Brian Bennett 3/26/2013 4:34:18 PM
    Lots of good questions from people asking about existing TMO plan holders...true, true! What happens to them?
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:34:30 PM
    Last question: Progress of LTE roll out and MetroPCS deal?
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:35:10 PM
    T-Mobile is aggressively rolling out LTE in all our markets, according to the networking executive (I didn't catch his name).
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:35:27 PM
    Once MetroPCS gets folded in, they'll start thinking about how to use both spectrum.
  • Lori Grunin 3/26/2013 4:35:39 PM

    Someone asked the engineer a question!

  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:35:53 PM
    There's a lot more cell sites on air. Want to make sure the experience is where it will be before it will be accessible to customers.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:36:12 PM
    Legere: Everything we're doing today is T-Mobile.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:36:57 PM
    Legere: This is about us deploying our network. Believes it will address MetroPCS's flagging subscriber base.
  • Brian Bennett 3/26/2013 4:37:15 PM
    I've also heard that TMO will make improvements to its existing GSM network to enable greater range and indoor penetration.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:37:18 PM
    Legere: MetroPCS will cover 225M pops when we merge.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:37:33 PM
    Legere: Network quality for MetroPCS customers will be better after the merger.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:37:49 PM
    That merger takes T-Mobile to an entirely different game, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:38:15 PM
    The savings from closing the MetroPCS network and moving people over to T-Mobile are astronomical, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:38:24 PM
    Legere is wrapping things up.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:38:41 PM
    Legere extends an invitation to try out the phones.
  • Brian Bennett 3/26/2013 4:38:42 PM
    Demo time!
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:39:02 PM
    The front screen falls, and there are multiple booths showing off phones.
  • Roger Cheng 3/26/2013 4:39:37 PM
    Check back in with CNET to get full coverage as Brian gets his hands on the phones and tests out T-Mobile's LTE speeds.
  • Brian Bennett 3/26/2013 4:39:54 PM
