T-Mobile US looking to offer more Apple products, could have eyes on the iPad

T-Mobile US CEO John Legere has said that more Apple products are coming to the carrier. Currently, the carrier offers the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 4 to its customers. Legere indicated that T-Mobile would soon carry a variety of Apple devices in speaking with All Things D:

“I think there’s a whole array of Apple products that we look forward to carrying,” Legere said. “We will expand what we offer from them.”

Currently, Apple only offers three products with cellular capabilities: the iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini. Legere didn't offer a time frame for these products, but it's probable that T-Mobile US will offer the iPad and the iPad mini when new versions launch either later this year or early next year. Whether Legere was referring to a new Apple product line when he said "wide array", we can only speculate.

T-Mobile US just posted good Q2 2013 results, with the iPhone accounting for about 29 percent of T-Mobile's customer growth. Adding iPad customers, as well as those from Apple products not yet announced, would provide a major boon to the fourth-place carrier, which seems to be turning its fortunes around.

T-Mobile US looking to offer more Apple products, could have eyes on the iPad


With my current plan that was set up with my iPhone 5, I have unlimited tethering over LTE. My current iPad with wifi only is perfect. Throughput via speedtest.net has gotten me in the 35 Mbps range. I wasn't expecting that kind of speed! It's actually faster than a friends home DSL connection.

It really shines though with it connected to my MacBook Pro. Charging the battery on my phone while having a secure connection as opposed to using open wifi hotspots.

I gave T-Mobile a try in the Cleveland area and it didn't do we well at all. I wanted unlimited data and 4G speeds but it didn't hold up.
