T-Mobile's John Legere posted his 2015 predictions and it's great to see he is still extremely enthusiastic about his network and the future of wireless.

I've been a T-Mobile customer for over 12 years, check out one of my first online reviews, and continue to enjoy solid service, low prices, and consumer-friendly options. US wireless carriers have not been very consumer-friendly and I think subscribers of all networks can thank Mr. Legere for pushing them all to start paying attention to their paying customers.

In 2015, T-Mobile will continue to offer customers more benefits, expand its network coverage, watch as other carriers try different tactics to keep and add customers, promote wearables and phablets, talk to the people, keep on eye on legislators, increase growth in prepaid subscribers, and add more T-Mobile customers.

At the end of Mr. Legere's 2015 predictions he states:

T-Mobile will - officially - become the No. 3 wireless company in America in 2015. This summer, I said we'd blow by Sprint by the end of 2014 to become the No. 3 wireless company in the US. They have been swinging the bat since I made that statement, so we won't know where things stand until we get the final score after we both report Q4 earnings, but whether it is now - or soon - I'm telling you, it's a done deal!

Sprint used to be the carrier who you went to for unlimited data at reasonable prices, but it went with WiMax for 4G and that ended up being a failure while others continued to expand and speed up their cellular services. Hopefully Sprint can aggressively expand their network and keep competing as this kind of competition has worked out for consumer benefits.
