John Legere is looking to rally together smartphone users to make sure that the future of the mobile internet is not left in the hands of the wrong people. In a new blog post and vlog, Legere states "if you're not pissed off, you're not paying attention." This type of behavior is what we have come to expect from the outspoken CEO, but when he is passionate about something he wants to make sure that passion is shared. From his blog post:
Spectrum is valuable, and there is a finite amount…. And right now, AT&T and Verizon are feverishly protecting their wireless duopoly by hoarding spectrum at the expense of American consumers. They are trying to control the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) like they do these airwaves, and I think it's important that consumers really understand what is at stake.
Of course, the vlog is slightly on the NSFW side, so be sure to keep that in mind before clicking play.
Spectrum is important, and Legere wants to be sure that the smaller competitors are able to purchase more in the auction as well. Be sure to check out the full post for all the details.
