T-Mobile's John Legere Challenges Rivals to Go Green Too

t-mobile-renewable-energy
A few days ago, T-Mobile announced that it was going green after it closed a contract with a second wind power farm that will supply renewable energy to them. Days later and Magenta is now challenging two of its biggest competitors, AT&T and Verizon, to follow their initiative and go green as well.

In a video, T-Mobile CEO John Legere took time out to challenge its rivals by referring to them as "Dumb and Dumber." As part of its going green campaign, T-Mobile will be setting aside $500,000 for a non-profit that promotes clean energy initiatives.

If its rivals decide to join in on the challenge before June 1st, Legere promised he would be increasing its commitment by up to three times. This means that if one takes the bait, T-Mobile will be giving $1,000,000 to the cause. And if both join in, T-Mo will be investing $1,500,000.

The question now is, will they be taking in on Legere's challenge?

    1. Sprint and competition? There's two words you don't see in a sentence very often.

    2. Indeed. We'll just have to settle for being green with envy.
      That said, I'm still happy with my Twigby (Sprint MVNO) service -- they also offer free voice and text roaming on Verizon when the Sprint network is not available, so I am pretty well covered wherever I go.

  6. He first made his competition go Pink by making them offer unlimited data. But Fran Scam-mo from Verizon was looking a little Green last year when Verizon gave in and offered unlimited data.

  7. Good for John L. and TMobile (and thanks for covering this story, Christine).

  8. Not upgrading your phone every year is better for the environment than what source of energy your carrier purportedly uses. But hey, people gotta have another thing to virtue signal about while waiting in line for their annual Iphone upgrade.

  9. This is just mis-direction to keep T-MO in the press. This will not reduce prices or improve service.

  10. As a former Vzw & Att customer, was skeptical of Tmo coverage, service, but have been pleasantly surprised and glad I switched to Magenta since past 3 months. Can't beat the great value of 2 lines with 10GB Lte for 80$ inclusive of tax,hotspot,inflight, Tuesdays....
