Everyone loves a good fight, and this will be no different. T-Mobile has started (or is it answered?) a campaign against AT&T that is sure not to disappoint.
Let’s start at the beginning. Back in January, T-Mobile’s new CEO John Legere came out ready to fight with the competition, calling AT&T’s network “crap“, and some other not so nice things about everyone else at his companies keynote CES event. He was trying to bring a fresh outlook to the company, and in all honesty, he may have gone too far.
So AT&T responded, and did so in a big way when they took out a full-page attack ad in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA today. The ad claims T-Mobile drops 2x the calls as AT&T as well as supporting network speeds that are only half as fast as AT&T.
Well, those ad’s definitely got T-Mobile’s panties in a bunch. So here we are today, with T-Mobile jabbing back with their own attack ads towards AT&T, and I am loving T-Mobile’s new no-holds-barred approach.
So, when are these going to run? These are all proof prints that have been sent to the important guys at T-Mobile for approval. According to TmoNews, we may even see these in the newspapers as early as today.
Honestly, all I can do is laugh at all of this bickering. Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the new T-Mobile, and what is sure to be an advertising war of epic proportions.
