AT&T (T) knew that demand for cable bundles had likely peaked when it bought DirecTV (DTV), but the company believes the decline in traditional cable businesses will be slower than anticipated, allowing it to fund upgrades to its broadband network, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing statements by Chief Strategy Officer John Stankey. "The world is going to be broadband... and that is where we want to be," said Stankey. The Journal notes that Apple (AAPL), Time Warner's (TWC) HBO, and Dish (DISH) have launched or plan to launch web-TV packages and services. Reference Link

08:52 EDTSSprint CEO may make 'unfortunate misstep,' says FBR Capital
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.

13:59 EDTST-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
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.

11:53 EDTDISHDISH abused small business program in auction, FCC Commissioner says
FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai stated: "Last month, the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau disclosed that two companies in which DISH Network Corp. has an 85% ownership stake are claiming over $3B in taxpayer-funded discounts on licenses they won during the AWS-3 spectrum auction. As I said then, allowing DISH, which has annual revenues of approximately $14B and a market capitalization of over $34B, to obtain billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies would make a mockery of the small business program. The evidence of abuse continues to mount. DISH recently disclosed that it made approximately $8.504B in loans and $1.274B in equity contributions to those two companies—hardly a sign that they were 'very small businesses' that lacked access to deep pockets. Moreover, we now know that DISH’s abuse of the program had an enormous impact on actual small businesses serving actual customers." Reference Link
