16:43 EDTTMUSExperian discloses data breach affecting T-Mobile consumers
Experian (EXPGY) announced that one of its business units experienced an unauthorized acquisition of information from a server that contained data on behalf of one of its clients, T-Mobile (TMUS). The data included some personally identifiable information for approximately 15M consumers in the U.S., including those who applied for T-Mobile USA postpaid services or device financing from September 1, 2013 through September 16, 2015, based on Experian's investigation to date. The incident did not impact Experian's consumer credit database. The data acquired included names, dates of birth, addresses, and social security numbers and/or an alternative form of ID like a drivers' license number, as well as additional information used in T-Mobile's own credit assessment. No payment card or banking information was acquired. "Experian is... offering two years of credit monitoring and identity resolution services through ProtectMyID... Although there is no evidence to-date that the data has been used inappropriately, Experian strongly encourages affected consumers to enroll," the company said.

13:33 EDTCMCSAFCC review of Charter-TWC deal likely to extend into 1Q16, CTFN says
The FCC's review of Charter Communications' (CHTR) proposed merger with Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Bright House Networks will likely extend into the first quarter of 2016 and could take even longer, CTFN reports, citing an attorney who often deals with telecom issues before the FCC. "...It is virtually impossible for the FCC to complete its review and adopt an order approving the license transfer before 1Q16 and, in my opinion, even getting it done before April 1 is a stretch," Barbara Esbin, a partner at law firm Cinnamon Mueller, told CTFN in an email. Esbin also said that the merger "appears to have drawn none of the heavy flack that felled Comcast (CMCSA)-TWC," a proposal that was nixed by the FCC and DOJ earlier this year, the report says. California utility regulators are also preparing for their own review of the deal since it will particularly effect the southern half of the state, the report says. Reference Link

10:50 EDTTAT&T, Verizon could find it hard to sell enterprise businesses, CTFN says
The wireline units of AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) that serve corporate customers may be viewed as good units to sell if the companies need to raise cash to help defray spectrum acquisition costs, but a small number of potential buyers and low EBITDA multiples for the units could make any such divestitures challenging, contended CTFN. Level 3 (LVLT) could be seen as a potentially interested buyer, but a source within the company told CTFN that purchasing units that are part of other companies, known as a "carve out," doesn't match the company's usual M&A strategy.

16:52 EDTTAT&T backs FY15 adjusted EPS view $2.62-$2.68, consensus $2.62
Backs FY15 double-digit revenue growth, consensus $153.06B. In a regulatory filing, AT&T reiterated its guidance for full-year adjusted EPS, double-digit revenue growth and continued consolidated margin expansion, even with foreign exchange pressure from the company's international operations. The company also expects capital spending to increase from second-quarter levels and free cash flow to be greater than $4.5B for the quarter. The company also reaffirmed all other full-year guidance. AT&T's wireless performance includes results from both business and consumer customers. AT&T expects more than 2M total net adds in the third quarter with gains in every customer category (postpaid, prepaid, connected devices and reseller). The company also expects positive branded voice net adds in the quarter. As a result, and with a continued focus on efficiency initiatives, the Company expects to maintain momentum in wireless service EBITDA margins. AT&T said its early integration efforts with DIRECTV are going well and are in line or better than expectations. The Company expects to report positive U.S. DIRECTV net adds in the third quarter and positive IP broadband net adds. U-verse TV subscribers are expected to decline as the Company continues to focus on satellite and high-value subscribers. The Company also said that it is changing the methodology DIRECTV used to count commercial subscribers to conform to AT&T practices. Previously, DIRECTV used a method of counting commercial customers that converted commercial accounts to an equivalent number of residential subscribers based on relative revenues per account. Under the new methodology, the Company will simply count each commercial account as one subscriber. This will reduce DIRECTV's total subscriber count by 918,600 at acquisition close on July 24, 2015. This change has no impact on historical or future revenues, EBITDA or cash flows. In International, the Company continues to show great progress in its deployment of 4G LTE in Mexico as the Company invests in that country's wireless network. AT&T is on track with reaching its end-of-year goal of covering 40 million POPs. The Company also continues its work on creating operating efficiencies for its Latin America satellite properties, even with foreign exchange pressure. AT&T will announce its full third-quarter results on Oct. 22.
