19:13 EDTTBT executive says Verizon, AT&T abusing landline duopoly, FT reports
In a Financial Times interview published Sunday, BT Group's (BT) Americas president Bas Burger said Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are abusing their control over telephone and broadband lines to charge inappropriate access fees to companies like BT. "For a western world country it is the worst I've seen... There is not sufficient regulation to create competition: almost all access is being provided by two companies and they have divided the country among themselves," remarked Burger, adding that the two companies are also not required to fix network problems within any specific timeframe.

15:26 EDTNWBONorthwest Biotherapeutics confirms Phase 3 trial of DCVax-L is ongoing
Northwest Biotherapeutics confirmed that its Phase III trial of DCVax-L for newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme is ongoing and the patients enrolled in the trial are continuing to be treated per the protocol. Over 300 patients have been recruited for the trial. The total anticipated enrollment is 348 patients. The only change in status of the trial is that new screening of patient candidates for the trial has been temporarily suspended while the company submits certain information from the trial for regulatory review. Such screening involves the initial evaluation of patient candidates to determine whether they meet eligibility criteria for the trial. Some blogs and social media comments have noted that the EudraCT trials database in Europe states that there is a "Temporary Halt" of the trial in Germany. In actuality, the trial status in Germany is that the trial is ongoing as noted above, and the company has only undertaken a temporary suspension of new screening. The company has sought to have the EudraCT listing corrected, but the database includes only certain pre-specified categories and there is no category that corresponds to a temporary suspension of new screening only, while a trial is ongoing. The company is in the process of preparing the trial information for regulatory review and anticipates submission within the next couple of weeks.

11:34 EDTTSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.
