The battle between carriers is heated these days, thanks in large part to the CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, who simply refuses to let the carriers rest at any moment. If he’s not getting the Magenta Carrier to announce some un-carrier initiative, he’s probably on Twitter yelling at a CEO or network, making fun of them for their perceived inadequacies.
As a result of that, things are getting pretty interesting when it comes to pricing and offers. The prices for phones are pretty much staying the same, thankfully, but carriers are starting to streamline their offerings, and the majority of them are even ditching two-year contracts.
That all started with T-Mobile, which, at the time, was the smallest carrier out of the four major names.
Times are changing and that’s probably a good thing. Of course, it all boils down to whether or not you’re actually happy with your carrier right now, or are happy with the changes that are coming down the line. For example, if you’re with Verizon, are you happy that two-year contracts are getting the boot and the Big Red carrier has whittled down its plans?
Or, how about AT&T? The Big Blue carrier hasn’t really been as aggressive as other carriers, especially compared to T-Mobile, and the carrier still has plenty of options when it comes to plans, but has it changed negatively for you? Are you upset that AT&T hasn’t already dropped two-year contracts? Are you hoping they keep them forever?
There are a lot of changes in the mobile industry, but are you a fan? Are you genuinely happy with the carrier that you use every single day? Let me know!
