I have no problem telling you an example of abusive use, Legere says.
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?
3/26/2013 4:34:30 PM
Last question: Progress of LTE roll out and MetroPCS deal?
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).
3/26/2013 4:35:27 PM
Once MetroPCS gets folded in, they'll start thinking about how to use both spectrum.
3/26/2013 4:35:39 PM
Someone asked the engineer a question!
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.
3/26/2013 4:36:12 PM
Legere: Everything we're doing today is T-Mobile.
3/26/2013 4:36:57 PM
Legere: This is about us deploying our network. Believes it will address MetroPCS's flagging subscriber base.
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.
3/26/2013 4:37:18 PM
Legere: MetroPCS will cover 225M pops when we merge.
3/26/2013 4:37:33 PM
Legere: Network quality for MetroPCS customers will be better after the merger.
3/26/2013 4:37:49 PM
That merger takes T-Mobile to an entirely different game, he says.
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.
3/26/2013 4:38:24 PM
Legere is wrapping things up.
3/26/2013 4:38:41 PM
Legere extends an invitation to try out the phones.
3/26/2013 4:38:42 PM
3/26/2013 4:39:02 PM
The front screen falls, and there are multiple booths showing off phones.
