T-Mobile President and CEO John Legere just posted his latest video blog, advocating for the end of wireless overages on behalf of hundreds of thousands of consumers. Check it out below:

Today, we sent @Verizon a message they couldn't ignore... right over their headquarters. #AbolishOverages!! https://t.co/zSAQGrKxGA

Last year alone, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint milked $1.5 billion in overage penalties from their customers, and over 330,000 people signed John’s Change.org petition to abolish overages, currently making it the #1 technology petition on the site. When the old guard carriers refused to eliminate this archaic practice, John went to social media to see what sort of message he should send to really get their attention. After polling his followers, skywriting was the clear medium of choice. 


Broll and still shots from Basking Ridge are now available on the T-Mobile Newsroom.
