T-Mobile #BallBusterChallenge comes to Lexington, KY

February 24, 2016

Lexington, KY — February 25, 2016 – T-Mobile today brings the #BallBusterChallenge into the heart of bluegrass country Lexington KY, to debunk Verizon’s year-old network claims.

In 2015 alone, T-Mobile more than doubled its LTE coverage footprint, adding nearly 1 million square miles of new 4G LTE coverage and now covers 305 million Americans - 97% the number of customers that Verizon does, while delivering the fastest 4G LTE network in the nation. Meanwhile, Verizon’s network virtually stood still in comparison.

Now, Verizon customers in Lexington will have the chance to see for themselves if their network is actually better and win $100 if they can prove it. If they lose, they’ll pose for a photo with a network sign of shame, with options like “T-Mobile’s just busted Verizon’s network myth #BallBusterChallenge,” and “T-Mobile’s network was just as good as Verizon’s #BallBusterChallenge” (but we’ll toss in a consolation prize for playing).

Join our Challenge Team for a chance to win $100 at:

  • Feb. 23 – 10:00AM – 12:00PM ET – near the corner of Harrodsburg Rd and Springburst Drive
  • Feb. 23 – 1:00PM – 5:00PM ET - Rupp Arena - on W. High Street near S. Broadway

You can also follow along on social at #BallBusterChallenge or @TMobile or see our latest video.
