If you haven't seen or heard John Legere speak, you're missing out. At T-Mobile's CES press conference, the carrier's relatively new CEO took potshots at AT&T, calling its network in New York "crap." He also likened most wireless subscribers to prisoners who are handcuffed for two years as their wallets are drained. Legere was there to tout T-Mobile's new $70 unlimited 4G plan for no-contract phones, as well as the provider's general push to end subsidized devices.
Wearing a New York Yankees cap, Legere also announced a multi-year MLB deal for integrating T-Mobile's tech. Joe Torre showed up, and T-Mobile's spunky leader had no problem telling those in attendance that he'd rather ask the ex-Yanks skipper questions than field them from us. Overall, Legere demonstrated a deep knowledge of the industry along with a great sense of humor, but most importantly a maverick spirit that could have a huge impact on the struggling carrier.
