Obviously at Magentan land they are defending their carrier, and calling this study garbage. Yup these budget Hipsters calling a study from one of the great American Universities garbage seems to be very educated.

Finally! Study by Stanford law school proves the obvious. Hopefully the FCC will take appropriate actions.

 

BingON should have been DOA, but better late than never.

Yes I read that earlier today. My first reaction

 

FINALLY!!

 

Now let's see if Tom wheeler aka FCC will enforce the net neutrality rule book or continue to allow legere and t-mobile to wipe their ass with it.

In typical fashion, the article comments are a hot mess of T-Mobile apologetics.  The usual suspects, unsurprisingly, have adopted the Legere EFF defense:

 

Who the fuck are you, anyway, Stanford lady?  Why are you stirring up so much trouble, and who pays you?

Wheeler can't be talking from both sides of his mouth about enforcing Net 

That is what happens when you give a lot of free candies away, Now Mr. Periscope has them eating from his hands. He basically built a cult. The people do speed tests getting less than one megabits down, and the excuse is: tower congested, dont worry about it will be fixed.

 

In the other hands, they keep talking crap about the Sprint service when in reality they don't even use it. These people are ignorants, but they are terrifying because its basically a cult.

T-Mobile changes the "deprioritization" threshold from 23GB to 25GB for unlimited data customers.

How generous. What have they said? Like having 2x or was it 10x as many cell towers and density as everyone else?

 

It must be celebration, because they now cover "

" Verizon does...

 

 

LOL!

What a triumph of marketing. Verizon didn't add that much LTE because they already cover most people, lol. Slight detail there.

T-Mobile offering unlimited 4 lines for $150/month and 10GB each/4 lines for $120/month.

 

https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news/unlimited-lte-promotion.htm

wow that's a great deal for a family/business of 4 or larger, looks like the price of unlimited is coming back down in price. considering that one line is $95 for unlimited and 4 lines is now $37.50/line that is one heck of a discount of course this promotion does not include hot spot, but that can be added if you need it.

Also T-Mobile is doing the one thing Sprint can't quite grasp. Make it available for existing  and new customers and not play favorites. 1up for that T-Mobile. I wonder how or if Sprint will respond?

I'm sorry, but has Sprint introduced new plans that existing customers aren't allowed to switch to?

All the time. At least and keep that price. Current customers usually have to complain to get it.

The only reason T-Mobile makes it available for existing customers is that 99.9999% of their base is already on an installment billing plan, separate from their account plan, so it's easier to shift customers around on their plans. That also means that legacy codes would get erased when the plans get changed, thus removing the "grandfathered benefit" concept.

Recently the newer promo plans have been available to switch to, but no waved access charges.

My access fees were waived when I switched from ED to the 40 GB family share.

 

Every now and then they offer it to existing customers.

 

I even added an extra line for free to get up to the 4 line limit.

Yep, but it's never a blanket offering, which is what the previous poster was referring to.

I guess they are getting affected by the ATT unlimited DirecTV plan of 180 dollars.

It was announced by AT&T about two weeks after this promo started that 500k people had signed up under the plan.  Includes existing and new customers.  That is a lot of potential customers that TMo could have acquired or kept.  Im sure the $30 undercutting is there to offset any savings going under a single TV+Cellular provider umbrella.

t of course this promotion does not include hot spot, but that can be added if you need it.

 

What makes you say that this doesn't include hotspot service? T-Mobile added that to all of the active plans last year. Did something change and I missed it?

"Yes, we've enabled mobile hotspot benefits on all active data plans," a T-Mobile spokesman told FierceWireless. "

I apologize, i stand corrected. "Unlimited 4G LTE plan includes 14 GB Smartphone Mobile HotSpot)" no reference is made about the hotspot other than the fine print for unlimited promotion plan.

I find it odd that they don't advertise that prominently as it is an added value.

 

good call

      Fierce has a poll posted... and is utilizing a bracket style contest to find out who their readers think is the most powerful person in the telecom industry. Between Marcelo and the pink clad Chihuahua of a man... I give it to Marcelo. I think the final winner should be Masa, it's is a name people know and will get to know more in the coming years worldwide. But for the current poll, it's an easy decision for me!

      T-mobile Ericsson Cell Equipment
       
      For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.
       
      Basic Ericsson AIR21 setup
      (Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)

       

       

       
      Ericsson AIR21 + Band 12 700 mhz Equipment
       
      Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.

      Roger Cheng @cnet appears to have had the most fun out of this, it kind of wrote the story for him I guess, so there is that. Also, just noticed the extra title Q, that is gonna drive some people nuts today. Top lel.
