by: William Neilson JrJuly 25, 2014

Sprint may have competition in bidding for T-Mobile

by: William Neilson JrJuly 22, 2014

With rumors of Sprint and T-Mobile finalizing a deal that would merge the two companies, rumors are now being revealed which hint at Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim being interested in purchasing T-Mobile.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Slim recently received cash from his sale of shares of América Móvil and currently owns an interest TracFone, a US prepaid wireless service that is the country’s fifth largest carrier. TracFone currently leases capacity in large cellular networks operators like AT&T and Sprint.

Last week, America Movil announced that it was going to slash its market share in Mexico from 70% to 50% to avoid sanctions from the [...]

Despite subscriber additions, carriers face growth questions

by: William Neilson JrJuly 21, 2014

BusinessWire

As this site discussed earlier today, T-Mobile is expected to continue their reign as the “fastest-growing” carrier once Q2 results are released later this month.

Now, the Wall Street Journal notes that although analysts expect all major carriers (except Sprint) to continue overall net additions of postpaid subscribers (which usually leads to higher earnings and better margins) in the Q2, there are also a number of questions marks about the near future of the major wireless carriers.

Even with those additions, Verizon did not see their earnings rise after interest, taxes (well, if they pay any), depreciation and amortization. In fact, [...]

T-Mobile expected to keep title of “fastest-growing” carrier

by: William Neilson JrJuly 21, 2014

BusinessInsider

When T-Mobile announces their Q2 results at the end of the month, analysts expect T-Mobile to continue being the “fastest-growing wireless company in the U.S.”

According to TMONews, T-Mobile’s record Q1 results showed 2.4 million net adds between January 1st and the end of March. Therefore, it should not be a surprise to see T-Mobile not replicate that growth again. With 7% service-revenue growth, T-Mobile would continue to keep the title as the fastest-growing wireless company in the country.

Even with Sprint/T-Mobile merger details continuing to be leaked, it is becoming more difficult to argue that T-Mobile by itself is not [...]

Toll-free data plans are growing worldwide

by: William Neilson JrJuly 16, 2014

BusinessInsider

While AT&T has been trying to expand the list of companies involved in their “Sponsored Data” program, interest in the program has been basically non-existent with just a few smaller companies having signed on. AT&T’s program only works if a number of big-named companies agree to be part of the program and so far it appears that few if anyone want to join it.

Other companies have also been trying to slowly implement their own toll-free plans in the US. T-Mobile has launched their Music Freedom which exempts data on a customers plan from streaming music services.

Yet, GigaOM wrote a very interesting piece showing that [...]

Verizon, Ericsson and Qualcomm plot spectrum-sharing test

by: William Neilson JrJuly 16, 2014

Verizon, Qualcomm and Ericsson are planning to conduct field trials where they will all share spectrum currently owned by the US government so that the companies can expand their wireless network capacity.

Verizon, Qualcomm and Ericsson plan to test a large section of 3.5 GHz spectrum which is usually assigned to military radar applications. All three companies have filed applications with the FCC to conduct the field trials. In the long term, Verizon says, this spectrum could be used for high-demand areas such as “stadiums, college campuses, or airports.”

As FierceWireless notes, the FCC plans to authorize new spectrum-sharing techniques to open up the [...]
