  • Does This Merger Make Telefonica A Must-Buy?

    By Fani Kelesidou - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: DT, TEF, VOD | Editor's Choice

    After months of whispers and behind-the-curtain chit-chats, Spain-based telecommunications services provider Telefonica (NYSE: TEF) shook hands on a deal with Dutch mobile operator RoyalKPN that's supposed to rock the boat of the German market by knocking Deutsche Telekom (NYSE: DT) and Vodafone (NASDAQ: VOD) out.

    Could this deal enable Telefonica to make up for its gloomy five-year revenue growth or should you just steer clear of this beaten-down stock more »

    By Brian Nichols - June 8, 2013 | Tickers: CLWR, DT, DISH, S

    The Softbank, Clearwire (NASDAQ: CLWR), and Sprint Nextel (NYSE: S) – oh and let’s not forget Dish Networks (NASDAQ: DISH) and now Deutsche Telecom (NYSE: DT) – fiasco is one of the more confusing acquisition attempts that I’ve ever followed; filled with conspiracy theories and “what ifs” at every turn. While most investors are placing their bets on how this might all turn out – here is a quick run-down of more »

  • Is Sprint Worth Your Time?

    By Casey Walters - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, T, DT, S, VZ

    It is widely known that the Towering Trio of the wireless carrier world are AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S). That is not to say that enthusiastic companies with smart ad campaigns such as T-Mobile – a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom (DT) aren’t putting up a fight. T-Mobile is the 4th largest carrier in the U.S. and has a combined total of approximately 150 million subscribers more »

  • T-Mobile's Strategy Shift: Short-Term Pain, Long-Term Gain

    By Bill Edson - April 4, 2013 | Tickers: T, DT, VZ

    It is hard competing against titans such as AT&T (NYSE: T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and Sprint. It’s even more difficult when you change game plans halfway through. T-Mobile – a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom (NYSE: DT) – seems to be making arguments against the use of subsidies. CEO John Legere is leading the company away from the previous business model of subsidized phones and two-year contracts.

  • All But Owning Sprint-Nextel, Apple Should Buy T-Mobile USA

    By Jonathan Yates - September 20, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, T, DT, S, TMUS.DL, VZ

    Like all others, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) would have profited greatly if it had bought Sprint-Nextel (NYSE: S) last year.  For 2012, Sprint-Nextel has risen by 137.61%.  Unlike all others, however, Apple basically 'owns' Sprint-Nextel as the wireless carrier owes its rebound to the popularity of the iPhone.  As such, Apple should buy T-Mobile USA to enhance its operations.

    T-Mobile USA, owned by Deutsche Telekom (NYSE: DT), is the fourth more »

  • Network Companies Execute 2G in the Name of Profits

    By Chris Marasco - September 13, 2012 | Tickers: T, DT, VZ

    Large network companies are working hard to find ways to boost profitability, effectiveness, and efficiency.  AT&T (NYSE: T), Sprint, and German Deutsche Telekom (NYSE: DT) are three prime examples. 

    AT&T says that 8.4 million of its wireless customers who have a contract, representing 12% of total customers, used 2G handsets at the end of June.  Most users have 3G phones, and AT&T is working hard to more »

  • Busy Signal: AT&T Dials Up Shared Data Plans

    By Evan Buck - July 22, 2012 | Tickers: T, DT, S, VZ

    AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has just announced that they are "dialing up" shared data plans similar to Verizon Communications Inc.'s (NYSE: VZ) Share Everything plans.  AT&T's new data plan, called Mobile Share, will let you pay one monthly fee for wireless data which can be shared across as many as ten devices.  In contrast with Verizon, AT&T will not force customers to switch over to the new plan, but will let consumers voluntarily switch or keep their old plans.

  • The Myth of Nationwide Coverage

    By Roland Hughes - January 8, 2012 | Tickers: ATT, DT, S

    We’ve all seen the ads on TV. Every carrier in the business claiming to provide “nationwide coverage” or “national coverage,” yet we’ve all dropped calls crossing the street and tried to dial when on vacation only to find we had no service, not even roaming.

    Just how blatant is this false advertising? This is an interesting set of maps. Not certain about the dates, but it does show more »

  • Landscape Change for the Cable and Telecom Industries

    By Tony Daltorio - December 13, 2011 | Tickers: T, CLWR, CMCSA, DT, DISH, TWC, VZ

    At the beginning of this month, there was a major landscape change in the telecom and cable industries. 

    The change came as a result of the announcement from the subsidiary of Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ), Verizon Wireless, which said it agreed to buy $3.6 billion of spectrum owned by SpectrumCo. 

    This company is a joint venture of cable companies Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) and Bright more »
