FBR Capital says its vendor checks indicate new Sprint CEO Marcello Claure has undertaken a strategic review of the company's competitive positioning. The firm believes Truco, the strategic advisory group brought in by Claure, is advocating a "premature network rip and replace program." FBR says this approach of converting Sprint's 1.9GHZ spectrum to uplink would be an "unfortunate misstep and a missed opportunity to embrace the technology shift underway." The firm sees risk of Sprint under-investing and weakening its franchise value further. It has a Market Perform rating on the name.

Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.
