13:59 EDTTMUS, ST-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.

In a blog post Monday, T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Sherrard stated "This month, we’re taking Data Stash even further. Starting Sunday March 22, Data Stash will start rolling out to Simple Choice prepaid customers. Every single one of our prepaid voice customers with a qualifying Simple Choice plan will start out with a Starter Stash with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data. And when that’s all used up, they’ll start rolling forward their unused data for use up to a full year. Automatically and at no extra charge... Last year, wireless customers asked to keep their unused data more than 40,000 times − and that was just on Twitter alone." Reference Link

11:53 EDTDISHDISH abused small business program in auction, FCC Commissioner says
FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai stated: "Last month, the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau disclosed that two companies in which DISH Network Corp. has an 85% ownership stake are claiming over $3B in taxpayer-funded discounts on licenses they won during the AWS-3 spectrum auction. As I said then, allowing DISH, which has annual revenues of approximately $14B and a market capitalization of over $34B, to obtain billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies would make a mockery of the small business program. The evidence of abuse continues to mount. DISH recently disclosed that it made approximately $8.504B in loans and $1.274B in equity contributions to those two companies—hardly a sign that they were 'very small businesses' that lacked access to deep pockets. Moreover, we now know that DISH’s abuse of the program had an enormous impact on actual small businesses serving actual customers." Reference Link
10:44 EDTYHOONetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
06:32 EDTYHOOYahoo developing encrypted email service, WSJ says
Yahoo is developing an encrypted email service and expects to launch by the end of 2015, reports the Wall Street Journal's Digits blog, citing statements by Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos given at the South by Southwest conference.

The service will be separate from Yahoo's current email product. Reference Link
