After the saga of the AT&T/T-Mobile merger worked out like a bowling ball in a wet paper bag, it’s been kind of easy to forget that AT&T wasn’t the only active participant in this ordeal. T-Mobile has thoughts and feelings, too, you guys, and they want to remind you that they’re not merely wireless krill to be gulped up by the orca-sized AT&T.
Today in a press release, T-Mobile COO Jim Alling made it clear that the wireless provider is steadfast in offering outstanding service to their customers and highlighted a few of ways in which they’re going to prove it:
Great Value. We’re offering our best plan ever – 2 lines for $49.99 each that includes voice, text and data (including 2GB at full-speed) on each line with a new 2-year agreement. We also now offer a Monthly4G no annual contract plan that gives you unlimited talk, text, and web (including 100MB at full-speed) for $50.
Compelling Products. We offer a great line-up of 4G smartphones. We continue to rapidly expand our selection of amazing and affordable 4G smartphones, tablets and other devices that make mobile internet service easy and affordable. This holiday, we have cutting edge smartphones including the 42 Mbps-capable HTC Amaze™ 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S™ II. In January, we will begin selling the Lumia 710, the first Windows Phone from Nokia for as low as $49.99 after mail-in rebate with a 2-year agreement on a qualifying plan
America’s Largest 4G Network – now faster than ever. Whether you need driving instructions that are fast enough to keep up with your car, or want to stream a full-length movie uninterrupted, our 4G network delivers. We have expanded our 4G coverage to more than 200 million people in 208 markets and doubled speeds for nearly 180 million Americans in 163 markets.
Humorously enough, that last factoid must feel like a cream pie in the face to AT&T, who had cited their need for spectrum as one of the primary reasons for acquiring T-Mobile. Oh well.
