Oh snap! We figured T-Mobile CEO John Legere might ultimately fireplace again at Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure after Claure called Un-Carrier “bullshit,” however we have been nonetheless shocked by way of the edgy CEO’s reaction.
That reaction aired on CNBC this morning in a while after the corporate introduced that roaming is now completely free when traveling in Mexico and Canada. So what did Mr. Legere have to say? Why, you'll be able to take a gander your self:
But if you'll be able to’t occur to press play at this time, Legere first replied to a query approximately whether or not T-Mobile has handed Sprint through pronouncing “the yellow faculty bus is in the again.” We’re positive that yellow faculty bus is an instantaneous shot at Sprint’s affection for the colour, and it may well’t please Marcelo Claure that his corporate’s symbol is being likened to one in every of the so much goofy taking a look automobiles in lifestyles.
What’s extra is that he says his corporate goes into the large boy portions of the pool referred to as the deep finish, and Claure — now not Sprint, however Claure himself — will have to “keep in the kiddie pool.”
Those phrases are positive to reduce deep, however we by no means anticipated John Legere to cling his tongue in all this. If that wasn’t sufficient, he advised he wouldn’t be stunned if Claure’s Tweets have been the results of a drink or (or 3), suggesting that the past due time stamps on the Tweets (that have been extra round 10PM Eastern antagonistic to the 2AM time stamp Legere falsely claimed) have been slightly abnormal.
Fast ahead a little, and the matter got here to Legere’s strange advertising techniques and his mannerisms as a CEO. He wasn’t apologetic approximately his brash symbol or whether or not he idea he used to be “degrading” the CEO place through doing what he does, and we’re rattling satisfied for it. We dig the proven fact that Legere acts like certainly one of the men,” although it's questionably unnatural.
And it’s now not like the CEO doesn’t have just right explanation why to really feel assured approximately his corporate’s movements and function. Just this morning they announced the addition of 2.1 million net customers in Q2 2015, that is a 41% building up yr-over-yr and their ninth consecutive quarter including greater than 1 million.
What’s extra is they’re most effective simply getting began with their up to date spherical of Un-Carrier bulletins. There’s another one coming next week, and we’re anticipating the corporate to have AMPED bulletins for all 9 Un-Carrier options by way of the time it’s all stated and performed. The momentum is actual, and whether or not or now not Sprint needs to consider it T-Mobile is making a few critical waves in the wireless business presently.
