12:30 EDTTAT&T may need to choose between dividend and credit rating, CTFN reports
AT&T, despite acquiring DirecTV, may have to choose between maintaining its credit rating and its dividend in a few years as web video displaces satellite, CTFN reports, citing two credit analysts and a senior executive. AT&T has reduced the pressure from high dividend payments after the DirecTV purchase, but "it could be back in the same situation within three years if DirecTV's cash flow isn't sustainable," according to Mark Stodden, VP and senior credit officer at Moody's. AT&T spokesperson said that any suggestion that it needs to reduce its dividend "ignores the facts," the report says. Reference Link

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.
