T-Mobile gets $40 million fine for fake ring tones, connections

T-Mobile gets $40 million fine for fake ring tones, connections

Just because you hear the other line ringing doesn't necessarily mean the other line is actually ringing. Especially if the caller is on T-Mobile. It seems that the Un-carrier has been "faking it" when it comes to connecting calls in rural areas, using fake ring tones and connections to make it seem like they were connecting and just failing. That lie is now going to cost T-Mobile $40 million in fines and a whole lot more in criticisms.

Senate aims to stop FCC from stripping internet assistance from the poor

Back in November of 2017 we took a look at a bit of legislation from the FCC that'd all but destroy the program called Lifeline.

US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication or 2FA is definitely a lot better than a naked password, but not all 2FA methods are created equal. SMS, which is actually the default many 2FA systems use, has been criticized for being more of a liability than a security option.

If T-Mobile's service is so good, why don't they have more customers than their competitors? Is it the advertising, maybe the phones they've got available - or is it something more subtle, like the shade of pink they're using?
