    AT&T Sells $6 Billion of Bonds in Effort to Refinance debt ....
    AT&T Inc., the second-largest U.S. wireless carrier, sold $6 billion in bonds Friday to partially pay down its $126-billion debt load.

    The Dallas-based company sold the debt in four parts, with the longest portion -- $1.5 billion of 5.65 percent 31-year bonds -- yielding 2.9 percentage points more than comparable government securities, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That’s down from an initial estimate of 2.95 percentage points, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak about it publicly.

    AT&T will participate in a wireless spectrum auction in March and may use part of the new debt to finance its bid, said Stephen Flynn, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. In 2015, AT&T acquired $89 billion of spectrum, pay-TV and Latin American assets, requiring $37 billion of cash payments and $20 billion of debt. About $68 billion of AT&T’s bonds and term loans come due by 2024, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    The company, which reported a profit of 63 cents per share earlier this week that was in line with analyst estimates, is working on lowering its debt levels in the next few years, chief executive officer Randall Stephenson said on a conference call Tuesday.

  • Google is testing new 'AllVid-style TV set-top' in cahoots with FCC, new pay-TV coalition says
    January 29, 2016 | By Daniel Frankel
    The new coalition of pay-TV companies banded together to fight a new FCC set-top proposal says Google is showing off a new set-top based on the agency's new rules.

    According to the Future of TV Coalition, whose 47 members include Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications and Dish Network, just to name a few pay-TV companies, Google has invited Congressional staffers to visit its Washington, D.C., offices to have a look at the new device.

    "Amazingly, Google plans to demonstrate its new AllVid-style TV set top box, presumably in order to build support for the new rules being considered by the FCC on video competition announced to much fanfare just this week," a coalition press release..

    FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced vague details this week of a proposal to "unlock" pay-TV set-tops so that devices from third-party manufacturers, sold at retail, can work with cable and satellite services. Consumers, Wheeler said, are chained to expensive lease requirements by operators, which are making too much money off this business.

    Wheeler on Thursday insisted the scheme he's proposing isn't AllVid. But for its part, the Future of TV Coalition wants to know how Google knows more about Wheeler's plan than it does.

    "This raises a burning question: how does Google have a box that could possibly comply with the FCC's proposal when an intentionally

    This is unbelievable, absolutely! Team rep comes on this board with his self aggrandizing and bloviating self righteous posts implying that some of the 19 analysts that follow sprint reach out to him for advice on Sprint and team rep can't even keep pace with day-to-day articles that involve sprint? Nadine was being kind when she called him a, Do the right thing and give your clients their money back...

  • Now AT&T has around $125 billion in debt plus about another billion per quarter in divvy payments.... Is buying a satellite content provider smart? If the answer is yes, How will Softbank and Sprint respond and with who?

  • The Bank of Japan on Friday introduced a negative interest rate policy, a move aimed at boosting a stumbling economic recovery and warding off deflation. Markets jumped on the intervention.

    Tokyo's central bank hopes that by imposing a 0.1% fee on selected current account deposits — effectively a negative interest rate — commercial banks will be encouraged to make more loans and so stimulate economic growth. Japan's economy is forecast to grow just 1.1% in 2015 and 1.7% in 2016.

    Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 stock index immediately leaped higher on the news. It ended the trading session up 2.8% at 17,518.30. China's Shanghai composite advanced 3.1% to 2,737.60. The Japanese yen initially slid after the announcement before recovering to rise 1.7% against the dollar to 120.79.

  • Sprint's thirst for dark fiber-based small cell backhaul spells opportunity for Zayo, Level 3, others

    Sean Buckley, FierceTelecomSprint (NYSE: S) recently said during its fourth quarter earnings call that it would be using a mix of 2.5 GHz spectrum and dark fiber for small backhaul -- a move that could potentially benefit various competitive wireline carriers who have aggressively built out fiber networks in anticipation of the emerging small cell backhaul trend.
    Initially the majority of the dark fiber backhaul activity has come from Verizon, which uses it in small cell markets.

    The opportunity will attract a host of different players: tower providers (American Tower and Crown Castle), traditional competitors (Level 3, Southern Light, Tower Cloud, and UPN) and dark fiber-centric players (Wilcon, SummitIG and Cross River Fiber). What's attractive about dark fiber for these providers is these agreements are multiple years long, providing a long-term revenue stream.

    Despite being a more expensive solution and not revealing any partners yet, Sprint sees dark fiber as a way to control bandwidth allocations. Unlike a lit service where an operator has to request their wireline provider partner to provision bandwidth, dark fiber allows Sprint to make upgrades themselves.

    By working with competitive providers, Sprint could also reduce backhaul costs it typically pays to the ILECs for special access circuits. The carrier recently said that it pays up above $1 billion a year for such circuits.

    Sprint's small cell plans are sizable with plans to add up to 70,000 small cells to its network. Since the small cells will be placed in various parts of the U.S., various competitive providers could compete for Sprint's dark fiber business.
