Let's hope the cell service in Naples' Port Royal neighborhood is decent because T-Mobile CEO John Legere recently became a resident. 

Legere purchased a home on Galleon Drive for $16.7 million in mid-October, according to Collier County property records.

The 6,240-square-foot Port Royal mansion, built in 2011, was designed by architect John Kukk and has four bedrooms. Other features includes a fireplace, infinity pool, venetian chandeliers, 400-bottle wine cellar and Galleon Cove views from one of two docks. 

The mansion also sports a temperature-controlled room for humidor or wine, a private elevator and a home audio system.

Un-carrier CEO John Legere announces three Un-carrier Moves for the future New T-Mobile on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, in New York. T-Mobile is laying the foundation for New T-Mobile's transformational 5G by lighting up nationwide 5G on December 6, covering 200 million Americans and more than 5,000 cities and towns across the country.

The sale came just a month before it was announced that the head of the mobile network would be stepping down from his current position as CEO at the end of April. 

That wasn't the only recent change for Legere, however. Shortly after the Naples sale, he sold his Central Park West penthouse to fashion designer Giorgio Armani for $17.5 million, according to Forbes

Legere is now among other titans of industry in the exclusive Port Royal neighborhood, such as former Best Buy CEO and founder Richard Schulze. The founder has put his Bonita Springs home on the market after purchasing property in Port Royal.
