Data Thieves, Beware: T-Mobile's CEO Is Coming After You
T-Mobile's CEO has a PSA for anyone who tethers outside the lines: Stop immediately or suffer his wrath.By Leah Becerra | August 31, 2015
T-Mobile's CEO, John Legere, is mad. Really, really mad. What's got him so upset? Unauthorized tethering that's swamping towers on his company's network.
In T-Mobile's blog, he wrote, "This week, I am taking aim at a select group of individuals who have actually been stealing data from T-Mobile."
It's really just a small group of people — about 3,000 T-Mobile users — but each of them hogs thousands of gigabytes of 4G LTE data every month. The average smartphone user usually only racks up about 1.8 gigabytes of data each month. (Video via T-Mobile)
