    "You can invite me back here in two years -- our network will be ranked No. 1 or No. 2," Claure said Wednesday at Recode's Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verde, Calif. He later clarified that he meant No. 1 or 2 in the major markets. (May 27, 2015)


    “The truth of the matter is we have the worst network quality scores in the industry,” Claure, who is now Sprint’s executive chair, told the judge.
    “It was getting really, really hard to sell [service] because new customers went home, tested their phone, and then realized they had coverage gaps,” Claure said about Sprint’s problems going back to 2017. “So the amount of returns started skyrocketing, and therefore, employees no longer wanted to work for Sprint. And then the churn of employees or salespeople started to skyrocket and so that became a big problem."
    “The quality of our network was four times worse than Verizon, half of T-Mobile and a little less than half of AT&T,” Claure added. (February 12, 2020)

  1. I did get the flyer a number of weeks ago. Held onto it: $60/Month with AutoPay. Perhaps they've made price adjustments since then?
  2. The mail flyer I got here in DC quoted a price of $60/Month.
  3. Another Deal: It's like they're doing everything that's not an annual iPhone upgrade program like we had with Sprint....
  4. Saw this new deal.... $5/Month for 500 GB $10/Month for 2 TB Pretty good.
  5. I'm 10 months into my Flex Lease. The website shows that I can upgrade early, but I'm only presented with the option to do 30 month financing or to pay in full. Maybe this will change at the 12 month mark on my Flex Lease? This really stinks if it's the case. Do right by your Sprint customers T-Mobile. I guess I could always upgrade at the 18 Month mark, but if that's the case, I might as well go to Apple's annual upgrade program instead of T-Mobile's.
  6. It sure would be great if T-Mobile continued to honor the iPhone Forever Annual Upgrade Program that Sprint offered instead of making it every Two years.... Perhaps that's asking too much.
  7. The more I'm reading about this, the worse of a deal it seems to be. We have the Unlimited Freedom Tax Inclusive Plan. I've migrated all but one of our lines to TNX. The only line I can't migrate is a Google Pixel 5 which apparently doesn't support TNX yet. Hopefully they get that sorted out at some point. We have 3 iPhones on our Family Plan that were on Sprint's annual upgrade program, and I was anticipating doing an annual upgrade this year after making 12 Payments on our devices. We're currently at 10 Payments on an 18 Month Lease on those devices. When I checked on the Upgrade Workflow for each line, it seems that I can only do a 30 Month Payment Plan or Pay in Full for the phone at the outset. Would I see something different at 12 Months? Apparently T-Mobile has introduced a new iPhone Upgrade Plan, but it's every two years instead of every year. Well that's worse than what we had before, and it seems to require us to switch to a new plan as well.... So I go to "Change Plan" and I see something called "Sprint MAX", but there's no fine print about it. It's not even listed on the Sprint Website as a current plan. I'm not about to switch to a new Phone Plan without seeing the Terms and Conditions, so they'd better fix that before I do it. At this point, we would probably be better off switching all of our iPhone Lines to Apple's iPhone Annual Upgrade Program and bail on getting those devices from Sprint/T-Mobile altogether. We would get an Unlocked iPhone at the outset. We'd get to pay installments over 24 months and we could upgrade every 12 Months without having to Pay Off the device or have to deal with a trade-in value. Am I missing something here? This seems like a terrible deal/program from T-Mobile.
  8. Just checked out the iPhone 13 Pro upgrade information for our T-Mobile “Migrated” Unlimited Taxes/Fees Included Plan… and unless I’m missing something, there’s no way to do annual upgrades anymore. I’m only given the choices of 30 Month Payments or to Pay in Full upfront, and I’m only eligible to upgrade to a new device once it’s completely paid off. Wow, T-Mobile… This really sucks. Are others seeing this too?
  9. Agreed. I want to hear less about politics from T-Mobile and more about security from them.
  10. Neat! I wasn't aware of that. Acquiring RCN would be a very interesting play for T-Mobile to make. They'd get a substantial foothold in some major markets and as well as an already built out wireline network that they could use to leverage their wireless assets.
  11. Speeds are too low for the sizes of files/documents I work with and need to manipulate.
  12. I'm all for competition! I forgot to mention that I received a mailer for T-Mobile's 5G Internet service the other day. Unfortunately it wouldn't work well for the kind of work I need to do remotely, but I'm glad it's here as another option for people. Given the undelivered promises from Google Fiber and Verizon Fios here, other companies will hopefully continue to fill the gap with additional competitive service offerings.
  13. Not the best fit for DC: But it's an amazing technology....
  14. Hopefully this comes to the DC Area at some point.... because Fios still isn't available for me in D.C. Google Fiber never showed up either. Verizon offers 7.1 - 15 Mbps D/L speed DSL. So I have a choice of Xfinity or RCN. T-Mobile should consider striking a deal with RCN for access to fiber network, which serves Boston, Chicago, Washington DC Metro Area, NYC, Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia.
