Yesterday, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) CEO Mike Sievert announced the unveiling of T-Mobile Work From Anywhere (WFX), with three solutions he said are “designed to help businesses and their employees meet the remarkable changes they face in tomorrow’s radically-transformed, post-pandemic, work-from-anywhere world.”
The suite of services includes:
- T-Mobile Enterprise Unlimited: wireless plans with unlimited 5G on T-Mobile’s network for the same price as the carrier’s shared, pooled rate plans.
- T-Mobile Home Office Internet: home broadband designed to give remote employees the bandwidth and security needed to get work done.
- T-Mobile Collaborate: a suite of mobile-first, cloud-based tools for business calling, messaging and conferencing from virtually any device, anywhere.
While preparing for radical 5G innovations, Sievert said, his company is focused on putting its 5G network to work after the pandemic pushed the fast forward button and made it clear that work will never be the same. “Tomorrow’s workplace won’t be anything like the old work from office (WFO) world, and it won’t be like today’s work from home (WFH) world. It’ll be something new: the WFX world. And T-Mobile WFX and our 5G network arrive at the right time to help businesses meet this moment head on … and come out the other side stronger.”
One thing stands in the way, according to Mike Katz, executive vice president of T-Mobile for Business, which he defines as the stranglehold that AT&T and Verizon have on the market. “The old carriers are still using their 91 percent market share to feed business and government a very expensive starvation diet of old technologies, old plans and hidden fees,” Katz said. “With T-Mobile WFX a 5G network that is faster and covers more area than AT&T and Verizon, we’re on a mission to loosen the carriers’ death grip on enterprise customers, so we’re bringing that same disruptive, customer-first approach that made the Un-carrier the fastest-growing, most-loved consumer wireless company over the past seven years and counting.”
