T-Mobile responded to the AT&T’s new aggressive move of giving $450 credits for T-Mobile’s customers to switch the carrier and John Legere, CEO of the company isn’t seems to be impressed with it and has released the statement to mock AT&T’s “desperate” attempts.
Yesterday, we have reported that AT&T brings out new plan, which will provide $200 credit to T-Mobile subscribers to switch to their services and again $250 as a part of the smartphone trade-in program.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in the executive statement,
“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!”
Even going further, Legere has tweeted in his handle, again to mock the AT&T’s effort, which brings the fact that AT&T has failed to acquire T-Mobile, where the latter one received $ billion as the breakup fee. The tweet goes like this:
