"I was accused in the second half of last year of thinking more about customers than shareholders," Legere told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Thursday. "We've shown that profitability will follow."

Legere said that he is "investing like crazy" and "not afraid" with a vision to be the superior network in the next three to four years.

"One part of the industry's fear-base is my opportunity," he said. "T-Mobile is cleaning the clocks."

On competition from Sprint, Legere said that industry churn, or customers migrating from Verizon to Sprint for example, could be a good thing for T-Mobile. He said those customers will ultimately come to T-Mobile for higher quality and competitive pricing.
