Denver Small Businesses’ Wireless Expenses

Audio: 
Emily Harnish, Director of Marketing for Business Markets at T-Mobile

(Thursday, November 6, 2014) - There are more than 120,000 small businesses with employees in Colorado. These business owners are crunched for time overseeing every aspect of their company, usually with tight budgets. As smartphone use increases, businesses may be at risk for data overage fees and bill shock.

Emily Harnish, Director of Marketing for Business Markets at T-Mobile, understands the needs of small businesses and the pain the wireless industry has put customers through.  

SOUNDBITE #1  

SMALL BUSINESSES NEED TO COUNT EVERY PENNY. THEIR EMPLOYEES ARE USING THEIR MOBILE DEVICES MORE AND MORE, AND THEY’RE BEING HIT WITH AN UNEXPECTED DATA OVERAGE FEE WHICH CAN HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON THEIR BOTTOM LINE.  WE DON’T CHARGE OUR CUSTOMERS FOR DOMESTIC DATA OVERAGES AND WE DON’T THINK OTHER CARRIERS SHOULD EITHER. (:15)

SOUNDBITE #2  

SMALL BUSINESS NEEDS CHANGE MONTH-TO-MONTH AND BEING LOCKED INTO A PLAN OR DEVICE IS FRUSTRATING AND EXPENSIVE FOR THEM. WE DON’T FORCE OUR CUSTOMERS INTO LONG-TERM SERVICE CONTRACTS AND WE MAKE IT EASY FOR THEM TO UPGRADE THEIR DEVICE OR CHANGE THEIR PLAN WHEN IT MAKES SENSE FOR THEM. (:15)

For more information on the company’s offerings, including a new promotion for small business offering 10 lines for $160 plus taxes and fees, please visit a participating T-Mobile retail location.
