T-Mobile is truly the "Un-carrier"

T-Mobile CEO John Legere prides himself on shaking up the wireless industry and vows to be different from the big guys (namely AT&T and Verizon Wireless). To that end, T-Mobile has announced a limited time promotion that will see priced slashed for LTE versions of popular tablets.
This means that LTE versions will be priced exactly the same as their lesser, Wi-Fi-only brethren. In the case of the iPad, an LTE version of the 16GB iPad Air would be priced at $499 instead of $629.

In addition, anyone with a postpaid voice service with T-Mobile will get 1GB of data for free per month through the end of 2014. This is in addition to the 200MB that T-Mobile provides for free to anyone that uses a tablet on its network.
“With this announcement, T-Mobile’s launching a full-on assault against the restrictions and pain points that keep tablet owners from experiencing life beyond the Wi-Fi zone,” said Legere. “The Un-carrier is all about solving pain points, and today we’re eliminating every reason to be stuck on an unconnected Wi-Fi-only tablet. There’s no longer any need to limit the use of your tablet because you’re intimidated by Big Blue, Bad Red or Bumbling Yellow.”
This is only Day 2 of T-Mobile’s “Three Days of Un-carrier” promotion. The first day saw the launch of T-Mobile’s $40/month Simple Starter plan. We can’t wait to see what Legere has in store for Day 3.

Queue the people who feel the need to justify their choice of carrier, because hey! why not troll on an internet article!

For me, I've seen T-Mobile's LTE footprint expand dramatically in New England. Keep it up, T-Mo...

Whether T-MO is your carrier or not, you have to admire Legere and what he is trying to do. In an age where for the past 10-15 years carriers have been trying to come up with new and interesting ways to screw you out of your money, T-mobile is actively trying to come up with ew and interesting ways to win customers and keep them.

CEO of the year? The decade maybe? He's got my vote, which is essentially meaningless, but he's got my business at least.
