T-Mobile

About

T-Mobile is responsible for dramatic shifts in the U.S. wireless industry throughout the 2010s. In just a few short years, T-Mobile went from being known as the cheap unreliable carrier option to a direct competitor for Verizon and AT&T, due in no small part to its purchase of Sprint and dramatic investment in its network.
