T-Mobile International chief exceutive Hamid Akhavan said: “We appreciate Jim’s contribution during the many years he spent at T-Mobile and whilst we respect his decision, we are sorry to see him leave.

“On behalf of the executive committee of T-Mobile International I would like to wish Jim every success with his future endeavours.”

T-Mobile said it will announce Hyde’s successor in due course.
