T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn't too impressed with AT&T's latest promotion

Earlier today, we reported that AT&T is seriously gunning for T-Mobile customers by offering up to $450 in incentives to switch. $250 of that incentive package comes in the form of trading in your smartphone, while the other $200 is a straight cash bonus to smartphone line.
 
T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn’t too impressed with AT&T’s promotion, and he even released an official statement than mock’s AT&T “desperate” efforts:
 
This is a desperate move by AT&T on the heels of what must have been a terrible Q4 and holiday for them. I'm flattered that we have made them so uncomfortable! We used AT&T's cash to build a far superior network and added Un-carrier moves to take tons of their customers - and now they want to bribe them back! Consumers won't be fooled...nothing has changed; customers will still feel the same old pain that AT&T is famous for. Just wait until CES to hear what pain points we are eliminating next. The competition is going to be toast!    
 
Legere even went to far as to mock AT&T on Twitter by bringing up the fact that AT&T’s failed bid to acquire T-Mobile resulted in his company receiving a $4 billion breakup fee -- roughly a billion of that figure was in wireless spectrum.



 
Is Legere perhaps being a bit too cocky here, or does he have every right to snap back at AT&T for trying to bribe his customers? And what does T-Mobile have planned next week for CES? Legere definitely seems excited about shaking up the wireless market once again.

We used AT&T's cash to build a far superior network ...

Then why did over half my T-Mobile calls get dropped or the other person couldn't hear me?

I happily pay an extra $10/mo for AT&T voice service that is actually RELIABLE.
