09:52 EDTT, AKAMAkamai jumps after announcing partnership with AT&T
Internet content delivery company Akamai (AKAM) is rallying after it announced an alliance with AT&T (T) earlier today. Under the deal, Akamai's content delivery platform will be combined with AT&T's IP network to deliver content delivery and telecom services to companies. Specifically, Akamai's servers will be placed at the edge of AT&T's IP network and in AT&T facilities throughout the United States, the companies said. With the deployment of Akamai's infrastructure within AT&T's network infrastructure, end customers are expected to benefit from more efficient content routing and better delivery of digital content, video and Web applications, AT&T and Akamai believe. The companies will initially focus their efforts in North America, but plan to expand globally within 12 months. No financial details of the deal were disclosed. In early trading, Akamai rose $3.13, or 8.82%, to $38.63.

08:49 EDTTAT&T still sees Q3 wireless postpaid churn 1% or lower
AT&T is holding a meeting with investors today in Atlanta. In advance of that meeting, the company is providing an update on its wireless operational results for Q3, along with details on progress in two emerging lines of business in its Mobility group: connected cars and AT&T Digital Life. For Q3, AT&T still expects wireless postpaid churn to be 1% or lower. The company expects total AT&T Next take rates to be approximately 50% and to have over 400,000 postpaid smartphone gross adds from customers who “bring their own mobile devices." AT&T also expects approximately 58% of its postpaid smartphone base to be on Mobile Share Value plans at the end of the third quarter. AT&T expects meaningful subscriber growth for its connected car services in the next three-to-five years. As of today, AT&T provides either wholesale or retail connectivity to nearly 2 million U.S. registered passenger vehicles with about 500,000 added in the third quarter. In 2015, AT&T expects to connect nearly half of new wireless-connected U.S. passenger vehicles. The company expects to serve more than 10 million such vehicles by the end of 2017.AT&T expects revenues from its connected cars to be driven initially by wholesale customer relationships with auto manufacturers, with the opportunity to develop a direct retail relationship with drivers. Wholesale ARPU, paid for by auto manufacturers, is expected to be in the low single digits and retail ARPU, paid for by the car owners, is expected to be similar to that of a tablet on an AT&T Mobile Share Value Plan. In addition, AT&T Digital Life, the company’s home security and automation service, has approximately 140,000 subscribers at the end of the third quarter with more than half of those added in the last two quarters. As of today, The Digital Life Smart Security plan ranges from $40 a month for a basic security plan to $70 a month with security and automation packages. Additional installation and equipment fees also may apply. Approximately a third of customers that sign up for Digital Life security plans are also adding automation products, with the majority of those choosing video or door-control products.

Starz (STRZA) may struggle to sell itself, according to the Wall Street Journal citing challenges facing standalone media companies.
