Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EST Dec 1, 2018 The last place many parents would look for ideas on how to save money for college is their workplace.

MetroPCS, T-Mobile’s prepaid phone brand, is remaking its image in an attempt to appeal to more people.

It has for quite awhile, he noted, but said the company hasn’t historically done a good job of communicating that. T-Mobile has bolstered its own reputation in recent years, both by offering cost-cutting deals to customers and by improving its network technology. “We want to highlight how good a network it is, and we haven’t done the best job of that since the merger,” Keys said.
