Verizon Telematics confirmed the commercial availability of hum, an aftermarket vehicle technology and subscription service that enables drivers on the road to make their car smarter through a simple solution regardless of their wireless service provider.

19:13 EDTVZBT 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.

11:34 EDTVZSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.
