Sprint and T-Mobile executives exchange compliments

What is going on here? Is the holiday season so joyful that a Sprint executive and one from T-Mobile can actually have good words to say about each other? First things first; the T-Mobile executive was not CEO and president John Legere. Miracles can run only so deep. The T-Mobile executive was actually CFO Braxton Carter, who was invited to an industry conference yesterday in New York.T-Mobile CFO Braxton Carter appears at an industry conference...

Carter apparently was overheard praising Sprint’s improvements with its finances and “other metrics.” The T-Mobile executive said, “You’ve gotta give it to the Sprint guys.” And that comment made it back to Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, who sent a tweet to T-Mobile’s CFO saying that Sprint is just trying to follow in the footsteps of T-Mobile.

Do we believe that Sprint and T-Mobile are ready to play nice with each other? Consider that not too long ago, the two carriers battled over their competing unlimited data plans with Claure calling his T-Mobile counterpart a “con man.” But just put a little mistletoe above their heads and a bit of egg nog in their bellies, and these guys become the bestest of friends. Now John and Marcelo, smile for that selfie!
