T-Mobile CEO John Legere has made a lot of noise since he launched his company on an ‘Un-carrier’ path. Now, the carrier has unveiled a new deal, offering to pay the early-termination fees of such customers who decide to switch to T-Mobile.
T-Mobile may not be a part of the big league when it comes to US-based wireless carriers, but the company has reinvigorated since last year and has been launching such deals and offers which are too enticing to ignore. As a result, other carriers have felt the heat and launched similar deals, trimming down the fees for the customers.
The latest move from T-Mobile is one which is sure to put all others such as AT&T and Verizon on the defensive. Announced at CES, the new deal from T-Mobile is this: go to a T-Mobile location, trade-in your handset and sign up for T-Mobile wireless service. You will receive credit based on the value of the handset you have traded in and if you have to pay any early-termination fees to the carrier you are switching from, T-Mobile will take care of that.
All you need to do is when you receive the final bill, including the early-termination fees from the carrier you are switching from, mail the bill to T-Mobile or upload it to www.switch2tmobile.com. T-Mobile will then pay the fee for you.
Apart from this brilliant offer, T-Mobile’s CES session packed a lot more. The company stated that it can finally claim the honor of having the fastest 4G LTE network in the U.S. And although T-Mobile currently has a rather small user base when compared to big-wigs such as AT&T, the company is growing rapidly, thanks to its customer-friendly deals.
