11:57 EDTBRCM, IPAS, T, MERU, WIFI, VZ, QCOM, ARUN, SLTE promises just as many headaches as breakthroughs, Barron's says
The telephone companies are happy because long term evolution, or LTE, not only moves units of phones, but also lets carriers squeeze more bits out of each hertz, Barron's reports. LTE already has deepened the disparity among U.S. carriers. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are far ahead of others. While, Sprint-Nextel (S) is just getting started. The benefits nevertheless are not clear cut. LTE is just at the beginning of the road. As that service fills up, it will require increasing capital investments. Moreover, the true payoff only comes if customers are satisfied, not disappointed. Both AT&T and Verizon now cap how much you can use. As a result, there will be more interest in what's called "WiFi offloading," where customers are bumped from LTE onto the nearest WiFi network. Barron's Technology Trader columnist Tiernan Ray contends that this could mean opportunity for WiFi network operators such as Boingo Wireless (WIFI) and iPass (IPAS). Also for WiFi equipment vendors like Aruba Networks (ARUN) and Meru Networks (MERU). Chip vendors Broadcom (BRCM) andQualcomm (QCOM) are already touting their parts for higher-speed versions of WiFi, called 802.11ac. Reference Link

We are now bringing the benefits of mobile technologies to new areas such as automotive, healthcare, networking, smart homes, smart cities, and wearables among others. Our business continues to generate strong operating cash flows, and we are committed to the ongoing return of capital to stockholders while retaining the financial flexibility to execute on our business plans. We recently significantly increased our stock repurchase authorization to $15 billion, one of the largest capital return programs in the sector.

Since inception, we have exceeded our minimum capital return target of 75% of free cash flow. Our Board of Directors and management periodically review our corporate structure.
