VoIP Business and Virtual PBX
iPhone for small business

Don't change a thing

Wireless industry analyst Chetan Sharma believes T-Mobile is nevertheless weak when it comes to selling to businesses and vertical industries like healthcare. Sharma as well thinks it needs to come up with more services like its Bobsled VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calling service in order to fend off the growing threat of over-the-top service providers. Nevertheless for the most part, T-Mobile is on the right track, Sharma told me in an email:

T-Mobile has done a pretty good job on the network front pursuant to this agreement the leadership of Neville Ray. They upgraded their backhaul to Fiber and moved rapidly on HSPA+. Even the LTE (Long Term Evolution, latest standard in the mobile network technology) deal was put at the same time in record time. For the most part, these things can take many quarters. Their marketing is always edgy. They put the top 3 operators on the back foot with their 4G marketing. They are obviously positioned then to be a good value competitor. At this stage, addition of iPhone is not going to tilt the scales too favorably. It is useful to prevent churn nevertheless expect no significant defections.

T-Mobile should have been able to provide service to straight iPhone clients long ago. In metro Atlanta, I am unable to get adequate service on T-Mobile. These are problems that need to be addressed.

I don’t understand, Don. T-Mobile doesn’t officially support the iPhone but. It’s 3G radios simply don’t work on T-Mobile’s bands. You’ll have to wait six months to a year, nevertheless that support will happen.
