T-Mobile Wants To Stop Network Abusers

T-Mobile's CEO John Legere made a blog post yesterday addressing the growing problem of customers, or "hackers" as he called them, that are "willfully stealing" data.

However, these violators are going out of their way with all kinds of workarounds to steal more LTE tethered data. They’re downloading apps that hide their tether usage, rooting their phones, writing code to mask their activity, etc. They are "hacking" the system to swipe high speed tethered data. These aren't naive amateurs; they are clever hackers who are willfully stealing for their own selfish gain.
