T-Mobile is Here to Stay

Whether gleefully poaching dissatisfied AT&T customers on Twitter or rebranding T-Mobile as the “Un-carrier” and changing long-established wireless practices, T-Mobile made a lot of noise in 2013. At CES in Las Vegas, CEO John Legere announced that all of that noise has moved the needle: T-Mobile had their best quarter in the last eight years in Q4 2013.

T-Mobile Raises the Competition with iPhone 5

Now that T-Mobile has the iPhone, we believe that in the months to come, 191,000 competitive customers from AT&T, Sprint & Verizon will be more inclined to consider the carrier while visiting T-Mobile.com. Here’s why: On Friday, April 12th T-Mobile became the last of the Big-Four carriers to offer the iPhone 5. But given that T-Mobile is late to the iPhone game, are consumers actually more likely to consider T-Mobile?

Live From CTIA: Operators Look to Respond to Challenging Market Dynamics with New Sources of Differentiation & Aggressive Posturing

Image from: Wireless and Mobile News This week carriers, OEMs and wireless ecosystem participants of all shapes and sizes descended on New Orleans for the annual CTIA show. And in a nice quirk of timing – aided by the show’s smart decision to move the show dates back a month and a half – CTIA coincided with the last of the big 4 carriers reporting Q1 earnings. After looking at

AT&T Still Top Carrier Destination for iPhone Searchers

There has been a lot of buzz around the office surrounding the next iPhone release – or, as everyone is referring to it, the “iPhone 5.”  As we near the launch, I thought it would be interesting to see where people were going for information on this next evolution of the iPhone. Using Compete’s Daily Keyword Destination report I looked to see where people searching on any term that included

Digital CMO Summit 2011- Day 1 Wrap-up

This time last week, we were JUST kicking off the 2011 DCMO Summit down in the Big Easy.  N’awlins. #Nola. New Orleans. You get the drift, right? Having had the last few Summits in locales like Miami and Newport, we opted for New Orleans as the host city this year, and what a host it was. In between talks from Arianna Huffington, Google, ESPN and Twitter, we had our fill

CES Round-up: How the Biggest Announcement was the one Verizon Wireless Didn’t Make

Verizon Wireless certainly wasn’t silent at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show, unveiling a broad portfolio of new 4G devices and proudly proclaiming the superiority of its LTE strategy to the 4G alternatives from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. But Verizon Wireless’ biggest and brashest announcement was the one the company didn’t make: that, after years of speculation, there would finally be a VZW iPhone. The silence last week on this matter was at the

Droid, Chapter 2: The Incredible

It’s here folks, "the next chapter in the Droid Saga" (to quote Verizon Wireless).  The Incredible by HTC is the latest Android phone released at Verizon.  After the success we saw with the Droid at the end of 2009, it made me wonder how the Incredible has fared in attracting interest prior to launch.  To do so, I started by comparing the volume of traffic to each phone’s microsite in

Talk is Cheap – Verizon Wireless to Allow Skype Calls

Starting today, Verizon Wireless will allow the use of Skype’s Internet calling service on some of its smartphones.  At first glance, this move doesn’t seem to make much sense.  Why would Verizon Wireless allow customers to place calls for free when it generates millions of dollars in monthly calling plan fees?  The top brass at Verizon Wireless hasn’t decided to give away something that many are gladly paying for; in
