March 06, 2016

T-Mobile is the only US wireless provider to receive Ethisphere Institute award 

Bellevue, Washington — March 7, 2016 — T-Mobile (Nasdaq: TMUS) announced today it has – once again − been recognized as a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices as a 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute. This marks eight consecutive years T-Mobile has been the only US wireless provider to receive this award for aligning principle with action, keeping trust part of its corporate DNA, and shaping future industry standards by creating the gold standard.

“We are dramatically changing an industry and our employees make sure every day that we’re doing it the right way,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “I’m not surprised -- but very proud -- that T-Mobile is the only US wireless provider on the list.”

As America's Un-carrier, T-Mobile has shaken up the wireless industry, freeing customers from onerous contracts, packing in more services like free music and video streaming, and unleashing more ways to utilize its incredible service. Millions of people have joined the revolution: T-Mobile had 33 million customers before launching its Un-carrier initiatives in 2013 and surged to more than 63 million in 2015!

The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient™ (EQ) framework developed over years of research and vetted and refined by the expert advice from Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel. The EQ offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

"Companies rely on Ethisphere to continually raise and measure the standards of corporate behavior. Those that demonstrate leadership in areas like citizenship, integrity and transparency create more value for their investors, communities, customers and employees, thus solidifying a sustainable business advantage," explained Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Congratulations to everyone at T-Mobile for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company."
