Porn Could Kill Shared Data Plans

This is what T-Mobile CEO John Legere had to say about his competiors- accusing AT&T of having a “crap” 3G network and saying that Verizon’s service plans could buckle under the weight of porn. Following is in sources own words.

On AT&T: “Does anyone use AT&T in New York City? Is anyone satisfied with their service? Of course not. The network’s crap.” [and then later] “I didn’t say the network’s crap, it’s just not as good as ours. That’s not the common person’s understanding, but it’s true, and it’s going to get even better.”

CES 2013 BugOn Sprint LTE: “You mean when Sprint announced it, and then they announced that they were behind, and then they announced the two markets they would announce later?”

On Verizon: “The way they covered those dust bowl states with LTE, I think, is admirable‚Ķ they have a beautiful network, incredible capability. They spent more money than a small nation building out that network. But shared data plans are a thing of the past. A 10-gigabyte, 5-device shared data plan, when Joe Schmoe Junior starts to watch porn on his phone, isn’t going to work.”

On How We Buy Phones: “If you landed from Mars on this planet and you looked at the way people sell to customers in this industry, you would go back to where you came from. The CEO of Verizon said in one of his quotes, ‘I’m just not sure the world is ready for $700 iPhones.’ Are you kidding me? That’s how much they cost! That’s why you’re in prison for multiple years!”

On Subsidized Phones: “You are paying every penny for their phones. You are not getting a $99 phone. Anyone who thinks they are, come with me into the back. While you’re handcuffed, they go into your pockets and they take your money.”
