16:19 EDTT, S, DISH, VZ, DTV, TMUSFCC proposes rules that may limit joint bidding in spectrum auctions
Roger Sherman, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Chief, stated in a blog post that FCC Chairman Wheeler circulated a proposal to open new opportunities for small and growing businesses in the mobile marketplace with the purpose of providing "innovative, smaller companies the opportunity to build wireless businesses that can spur additional investment and bring more choices to consumers." The Notice of Proposed Rule Making being circulated proposes to update FCC rules in a way that "recognizes and confronts the challenges new entrants face in entering the wireless industry," Sherman said, adding "Perhaps most importantly, the NPRM recognizes the challenge of entering into a marketplace in which more than 95% of existing customers are served by the top four providers." Sherman wrote: "The proposal addresses another important issue also linked to the trend towards consolidation in the wireless industry. We must make sure that the biggest providers are not able to limit broad participation in the spectrum auction. As promised in the Mobile Spectrum Holdings Report and Order, we now seek comment on whether and how we should restrict the ability of wireless companies to combine their bids during an auction." Companies that may be impacted by FCC efforts to limit joint bidding on spectrum include Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). Reference Link

11:33 EDTVZ, S, T, TMUSSprint announces launch of LTE Plus network
In celebration of the launch of its new LTE Plus network, Sprint (S) is introducing the biggest wireless offer in U.S. history - 50% off the price of most Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (TMUS) rate plans, the company says. New customers can sign up for this offer nationwide Nov. 20 through Jan. 7, 2016. LTE Plus, available today in 77 major markets, takes advantage of Sprint's rich triband spectrum portfolio, and it uses some of the world's most advanced technologies in wireless, such as carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming. Customers who switch get 50 percent off most current rate plan prices from their current carrier. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers switching to Sprint also can take advantage of iPhone Forever, where they are eligible to upgrade every time a new iPhone launches. Customers must port one line, and can add up to 9 additional lines on the account. Customers must choose from the 50 percent off rate plans available from their current carrier. Cricket and MetroPCS customers also can switch and save 50 percent off their parent company's postpaid rates. 50 percent off pricing remains valid until Jan. 8, 2018, for activations between Nov. 20, 2015, and Jan. 7, 2016.
