T-Mobile’s John Legere to Host the Uncarrier 8.0 Event Today

by Istvan Fekete on December 16, 2014

We are just a few weeks away from the end of the year, but T-Mobile has yet another thing to show to US mobile users: Today, president and CEO and outspoken leader John Legere will take center stage to unveil the carrier’s Uncarrier event.

The nation’s fourth-largest wireless player is set to host an “Uncarrier 8.0” event at 7:30 a.m. PT on Tuesday. T-Mobile was careful enough not to provide too much information about the event, but said it plans to “share how we continue to rewrite the rules of wireless.”

During the last Uncarrier event the day after Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September, T-Mobile broadened its Wi-Fi calling and text message features. Since it started the series of “Uncarrier” programs, T-Mobile US has heavily influenced the wireless industry by eliminating contracts, ditching international roaming rates, and offering free music streaming options.

The aggressive campaign has brought the desired results: T-Mobile managed to win more customers than any other carrier in the US market. The Uncarrier events and programs, coupled with Legere’s brash attitude, have succeeded in turning out the company and adding 2.3 million customers in the past quarter alone.

This is the man who will take the stage one more time this year during the Uncarrier 8.0 event, which will live stream on Yahoo Tech and be followed by a live Q&A with Yahoo’s David Pogue. Viewers can submit questions via Twitter to @TMobile with the hashtag #Uncarrier8.

Alongside its scheduled Uncarrier event, T-Mobile said on Monday that its wideband LTE service had gone live across greater New York, covering Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and Northern New Jersey, among other areas.
