05:59 EDTTMUST-Mobile agrees to improve disclosures for consumers using mobile speed tests
The FCC announced yesterday that T-Mobile US has agreed to take steps to ensure that customers who run mobile speed tests on the carrier's network will receive accurate information about the speed of their broadband Internet connection, even when they are subject to speed reductions pursuant to their data plans. As part of the agreement, T-Mobile will send text messages to customers that will enable them to more easily get accurate speed information, place direct links to accurate speed tests on customer handsets, and revamp its website disclosures to provide clearer information about the speeds customers actually experience. The FCC and T-Mobile have agreed that T-Mobile will begin implementing the agreement immediately and will fully implement it within 60 days.

10:11 EDTTMUSVerizon slips after Citi downgrade on spectrum prices, rising competition
Shares of Verizon (VZ) are falling in early trading after Citigroup downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Citigroup analyst Michael Rollins downgraded Verizon, citing the higher than expected price the company will have to pay for wireless spectrum and the increased price competition it is facing. Prices for spectrum currently being auctioned by the FCC are running 36% above Rollins' estimates, the analyst wrote. The higher than expected cost of spectrum implies that the wireless carriers will have higher costs, the analyst explained. Meanwhile, increased competition over consumer prices among the carriers could prevent them from profiting from increased data consumption, Rollins believes. National wireless carriers' outlook for 2015 is unfavorable, warned the analyst, who trimmed his price target on Verizon to $51 from $53. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The total provision winning bids in the AWS-3 auction rose to about $33B after round 26, which was up 3.23% from the prior round, according to data posted to the FCC website on Friday. Companies believed to be bidding in the auction other than Verizon include AT&T (T), T-Mobile (TMUS) and U.S. Cellular (USM). This morning, RBC Capital raised its price target on DISH to $81 from $69, citing the current price points of a spectrum auction. The firm views the price points as a conservative valuation proxy for DISH's AWS-4 spectrum holdings. Analysts at Goldman also raised DISH's price target to $96 from $77 to reflect a higher value for the company's spectrum holdings. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Verizon fell 2.2% to $49.12, while DISH Network shares rose 3% to $75.86.

07:19 EDTTMUSSpectrum auction positive for DISH, Globalstar, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan notes the AWS-3 spectrum auction continued on Tuesday with the aggregate value of licenses with bids at $16.4B, up from Monday's $8.9B and compared to the reserve price of $10.6B that the FCC set for the entire auction. The firm views the rise in prices as negative for telecom carriers that are spending more than expected, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), and possibly T-Mobile (TMUS) and US Cellular. It views the prices as positive for independent spectrum owners like DISH (DISH) and Globalstar (GSAT), as well as tower companies American Tower (AMT), SBA Communications (SBAC) and Crown Castle (CCI).
