Mobile CEO promises the same or better prices following Sprint Merger

Mobile CEO promises the same or better prices following Sprint Merger

T-Mobile says that if a merger deal with Sprint goes through, the Greater Rochester area will have one of five new "T-Mobile Customer Experience Centers" and that will create at least 1,000 jobs in Upstate New York. "American consumers will benefit from a nationwide 5G network that is both broad and deep, and we can't wait to get started", he said.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere vowed on Monday not to raise prices on the mobile rate plans it now offers for three years if federal regulators allow his company to merge with rival Sprint. "The core tenet of the New T-Mobile is that by bringing these companies together you get something very different from the T-Mobile you know today plus the Sprint you know today", he said.

But from another perspective, Clyburn's involvement with T-Mobile serves to inoculate the company from critics who argue the deal will be largely bad for consumers because it will mean the elimination of a competitor from the USA wireless market. We believe this merger makes consumers better off, and we're willing to put our money where our mouth is.

Legere's letter to Pai, and an accompanying four-page filing laying out details of the promise to the FCC, came as the agency renewed its review of the proposed merger announced after being interrupted by the partial government shutdown. It also might have to raise the prices of third party services whose costs are not controlled by T-Mobile.

Liam Neeson Can't Be Racist Because Of His Kisses, Michelle Rodriguez Says
Whoopi Goldberg has insisted Liam Neeson isn't racist in light of his recent controversial interview. I asked her, 'Did you know the person?' 'No.' 'His race?' She said he was a black man.

In a letter sent to the United States FCC Chairman, John Legere outlines some of the expectations that “the New T-Mobile” has in terms of keeping prices competitive while offering customers more.

The wireless operators say that joining forces will increase competition that could help with the introduction of super-fast 5G network speeds. The group says that the pledge is full of loopholes and contains a provision for higher monthly bills in the future on the pretext network improvements.

Revenue at the Bellevue, Wash. -based company was a record $11.4 billion in the period, up 6 percent year-over-year and beating analyst predictions.

That means he's publicly guaranteeing that there will be no price hikes for the next three years.
