11:57 EDTQCOM, ARUN, S, BRCM, IPAS, T, MERU, WIFI, VZLTE 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

According to market sources, DigiTimes reports that TSMC (TSM) has been "actively" seeking 16nm FinFET chip orders. In addition to securing a portion of Apple's (AAPL) A9 chip orders, TSMC has also received orders from AMD (AMD), Broadcom (BRCM), LG, Nvidia (NVDA) and Avago (AVGO), the sources say, noting that TSMC failed to maintain orders for Qualcomm's (QCOM) flagship mobile chips, as it has placed orders for the Snapdragon 820 series with Samsung (SSNLF).

19:13 EDTVZ, TBT 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 EDTS, VZ, TSprint 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.
