Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) senior vice president of technology strategy, governance, and programs Tomasz Gerszberg has called for internet companies such as Google (GOOG) and Facebook (FB) to subsidize users' mobile subscriptions due to the new way advertising takes over data allowances, the Financial Times reports, citing an article Gerszberg wrote on LinkedIn.

06:25 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell upgraded Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to Overweight and raised his price target for shares to $825 from $560. The search giant closed yesterday down $5.38 to $688.73. Google's YouTube unit "continues to grow very rapidly," while the revenue growth of Google Websites suggests the company is navigating the mobile transition on search better than expected, Cordwell tells investors in a research note. Further, a greater focus on costs by the new CFO is driving improved profitability, a trend that should continue, the analyst argues. Cordwell expects continued outperformance of Google shares.

11:34 EDTSFTBFSprint 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.
