Exactly a week before Black Friday arrives, T-Mobile is launching a new buy one get one special offer that basically allows customers to get their hands on another handset (of equal or cheaper price), completely free of charge thanks to a rebate, after deciding to avail of an additional line of service.
During a recent media and analyst event jointly held with chip maker Qualcomm, T-Mobile took the opportunity to reveal that its Gigabit LTE service is now live in at least 430 markets across the United States. Looking at the bigger picture, the Uncarrier’s LTE Advanced (LTE-A) network now covers over 920 markets in America.
Well, at least for now. Both T-Mobile and Sprint have released separate statements during the weekend, saying that they have mutually agreed to call off further discussions with regards to a possible merger transaction between the two major US wireless carriers. John Legere, the chief executive officer of T-Mobile has stated through an official press release that despite the many benefits of a combined entity consisting of the third and fourth largest mobile operators in the country, the proposed deal was not able to offer a superior long term value for the company’s shareholders.
Remember the Galaxy Note 8buy one get one special offer that T-Mobile introduced around a couple of months ago? Well, that promotional deal unfortunately ended last October 17th. The third biggest wireless carrier in the United States, however, is offering a new Galaxy Note 8 deal, one that promises a very generous discount.
According to a report recently published by the Nikkei Asian Review, it appears that SoftBank, the parent company of Sprint, is planning to cease merger talks with Deutsche Telekom, the parent company of T-Mobile, at least for now.
Via an official statement in its website, the third biggest mobile operator in the country is announcing that it has decided to limit LTE roaming for its subscribers traveling to Canada and Mexico starting on November 12th. The cap will be at 5 gigabytes each month, and while it is true that T-Mobile will not be charging for overages, mobile users will have to expect connection speeds as sleepy as 128 kbps if they go beyond the 5 gigabyte limit per month.
According to a report recently published by Motherboard, it appears that there is a flaw in T-Mobile’s website that allowed unauthorized access to personal information of millions of the major US wireless carrier’s subscribers. The personal info reportedly included account numbers and email addresses. Thankfully, the flaw was already fixed last Friday.
According to a report recently published by Bloomberg, major US wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint are said to be finalizing the terms of a proposed merger deal, which could be officially announced before the end of this month, when both companies will be releasing their respective quarterly earnings report.
