    The other guys can't support the pace of growth in wireless traffic, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:37:11 PM
    Sprint is burying its business on a poor network, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:37:32 PM
    Ray touts its nationwide VoLTE network, the first in the industry.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:37:45 PM
    Ray talks about the extended reach and capability of the LTE network.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:37:48 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:37:58 PM
    How do you drive a better, richer experience, he says? VoLTE.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:38:17 PM
    That's how confident we are in the LTE network, he says. We pushed VoLTE out.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:38:25 PM
    VoLTE is voice over LTE, an all-IP network for voice.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:38:47 PM
    T-Mobile is using wideband LTE to augment its network, as well as using spectrum it bought from MetroPCS, he says.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:39:07 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:39:07 PM
    T-Mobile uses three times the data over AT&T, he says.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:39:44 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:39:49 PM
    Ray talks again about the speed and claim of fastest LTE network in the US. Nobody has challenged it yet.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:40:14 PM
    The rankings include T-Mobile, then Verizon, a big drop, then AT&T and Sprint way at down at the bottom, he says.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:40:19 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:40:22 PM
    It's a tremendous place to be, he says. But we can't stop.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:40:53 PM
    We will turn up low-band spectrum in 2014, he says.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:41:02 PM
    If anyone's curious, about a month ago, I ran a few real-world 4G LTE tests in San Francisco across the four major US carriers. T-Mobile showed impressive speeds: www.cnet.com

  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:10 PM
    You get the spectrum, you load it up, and knock down the barriers. That's how the uncarrier works, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:25 PM
    Half a dozen devices will support that low-band spectrum in the fourth quarter, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:30 PM
    So on to the next phase...
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:42 PM
    We have to be ever-more disruptive, he says. Do things the other guys won't do.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:52 PM
    So we're talking about next-generation Wi-Fi calling, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:41:58 PM
    It's very new for the industry, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:42:10 PM
    How can we grow that mobile Internet and customer experience, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:42:25 PM
    Able to seamless hand off a voice-over LTE call between a Wi-Fi call, he says.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:42:26 PM
    If anyone's playing tech-world bingo, Ray just said the word "disruptive." That should be the center space.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:42:44 PM
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:43:06 PM
    Ray: So big, the Apple guys spoke about it yesterday on stage.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:43:12 PM
    Ray: This is big news, a huge shift and change in the industry
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:43:33 PM
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:43:33 PM
    Ray: Apple is only going to work with one carrier in the US marketplace:
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:43:50 PM
    Ray: I have no clue if our competition will try to replicate what we do.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:44:06 PM
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:44:17 PM
    Ray: We're the first to do it. We may be the only one to do it. We're lining up our OEMs and Apple is the first out of the gate who will do this with us.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:44:51 PM
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:45:00 PM
    Ray: Why wouldn't you do this? Think about how much Wi-Fi there is out there today and how beneficial it is for our customers.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:45:22 PM
    Ray: This is a massive, massive win for our customers.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:45:25 PM
    This is a massive win for our customers, he says. There are places that wireless coverage doesn't touch. And now they will be Wi-Fi.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:46:05 PM
    The campaign is called "Wi-Fi Un-leased."
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:46:13 PM
    Apple's announcement set the road map for this, he says.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:46:28 PM
    Legere: Starting right now, every single Wi-Fi connection just became a T-Mobile tower.
