    So, a trial has been underway for more then a it Sprint? How can something this large in scope be kept so quiet?

    A trial had been underway with the carrier for a little over a year, starting with a million handsets in four or five network locations and increasing this year to include up to 5 million handsets and expanding to 26 of its largest M&O networks. Now it's exanding further, to up to 40 million.

    AT&T Statement on Release of FCC’s Net Neutrality Order


    The following statement may be attributed to AT&T Senior Executive Vice President-External and Legislative Affairs Jim Cicconi: “Unfortunately, the order released today begins a period of uncertainty that will damage broadband investment in the United States. Ultimately, though, we are confident the issue will be resolved by bipartisan action by Congress or a future FCC, or by the courts.”

    A Future FCC? Mr Son, what could that mean?

    Analysts See Lower Consensus For AT&T

    AT&T Inc.'s (NYSE: T) consensus earnings estimates are likely to be revised downward in the wake of its recent first-quarter performance update, a couple of analysts said.

    The company closed Wednesday at $32.62, down $0.16.

    Given overly optimistic expectations regarding both revenue growth from wireless services and profit margins, "Street estimates are likely to come down," Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack said.

    McCormack maintained a Buy rating and $39 target, but shaved a penny from his first-quarter estimate, to $0.64 a share, versus the average analyst expectation of $0.66 a share.

    Barclays' Amir Rozwadowski said the updated outlook will lead to a "realignment" of consensus estimates for AT&T.

    AT&T Guidance Shows Competition Weighing On Wireless Carriers: Citi

    AT&T (T) reiterated its full year 2015 guidance in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission late Tuesday, helping push the shares up fractionally after hours.

    Citigroup’s Michael Rollins writes that the guidance indicated that first quarter EPS performance will be back-end loaded “mostly on dilution to wireless service revenue from continued migration to no-subsidy plans.”

    He reiterated a Hold rating on the stock writing that he believes the cost of capacity and competition will weigh on the company’s’ performance and limit upside to the stock over the next year, although he notes that AT&T’s dividend will offer some support.

  • it isn't isn't AT&T...who could it be?

    Marking a big milestone for its business and the industry at large, Boingo Wireless has signed a major multiyear Wi-Fi offload agreement with a Tier 1 U.S. wireless carrier.

    The deal will include deployment on up to 40 million of the carrier's handsets for Wi-Fi offload at Boingo's managed and operated (M&O) networks in 2015, as well as the option to auto-authenticate onto Boingo's aggregated network of Wi-Fi hotspots.

    The announcement is not exactly a surprise. Boingo CEO Dave Hagan said during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call that Boingo expected to sign a long-term deal, a milestone it has been working toward for years.

    "The carriers are realizing yes, Wi-Fi is a good thing, we should make it part of our network topology, and companies like Boingo will benefit as a result," Hagan said during Deutsche Bank's 23rd Annual Media, Internet & Telecom Conference.

    A trial had been underway with the carrier for a little over a year, starting with a million handsets in four or five network locations and increasing this year to include up to 5 million handsets and expanding to 26 of its largest M&O networks. Now it's exanding further, to up to 40 million.

    Hagan said the concept has been a subject of discussions for about a decade. What's changed now is that there's a huge ramp-up in mobile data traffic, which stresses the cellular networks. Networks are being densified; network nodes need to be deployed closer to the customers, and that involves using techniques such as distributed antenna systems (DAS), femtocells and picocells. In addition, spectrum is a limited resource, so much so that bidders spent more than $44.8 billion on the most recent AWS-3 spectrum auction.

    Boingo has offload relationships with three of the four national U.S. carriers and isn't naming this particular customer.
    For the first time in the company's--and probably the market's--history, "we're going to have someone other than AT&T and Verizon leading distributed antenna system builds, and it's incredibly exciting because imagine having T-Mobile or Sprint in a major high-impact venue having better service than AT&T or Verizon," he said.

    "It's big from a market-dynamics perspective, because I find it hard to believe that the two big guys are going to let that last very long," he said, adding that it is likely to lead to more DAS business.

    Like it or not,Sprint's NEW CEO Marcelo Claure has only been on the job for about 7 months or so... Sprint's new Technical COO, Junichi Miyakawa has only been on the job around 5 months.. Sprint [together with Nextel] has been a company of missteps since Gary Forsee left a bag of krap for Hesse to try and straighten out. Sprint has been around since bloated with bell heads, laggards and hangers on...that culture is all changing now since Mr Son took charge. Marcelo has a HUGE task ahead of him. He needs time to turn it around. The key here is how much time will it take and will Mr Market be patient in the meantime...

  • wonder what Ergen is really up to here?

    March 9 (Reuters) - A lawyer for LightSquared on Monday said the company will set aside $400 million in cash to give its bankruptcy lenders, including Dish Network Corp Chairman Charles Ergen, the option to take a portion of their repayment in cash, instead of notes.

    The bankrupt wireless venture, opening a week-long court hearing seeking a judge's approval of its plan to restructure debt and end its Chapter 11 case, also said it will appoint former Verizon Communications Inc Chief Executive Ivan Seidenberg as its chairman after bankruptcy.

  • Keep the hammer down, Marcelo!

    Published: Mar 10, 2015 9:50 a.m. ET

    Verizon Communications Inc. said its wireless-service cancellations will again be elevated from a year earlier in the first quarter, amid what has been a more competitive market for subscribers.

    The price war among the U.S. carriers has “calmed a bit,” but moves from rivals could change that, Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said at an investor conference Tuesday. In 2014, the major carriers made more than 90 price moves compared with about 20 the year before,Shammo said.

    As a result, the carrier’s churn--a measure of service cancellations--would be higher in the first three months of the year when compared with last year. The increase isn’t a concern, he said.
