Meanwhile, the hardest-working telecom commentator in America is still going strong. We marveled at the astounding ubiquity of Jeff Kagan, a telecom industry analyst with a remarkable talent for getting himself quoted in stories about phone companies. Kagan, we wrote, "has that rare and beautiful quality reporters treasure: He returns your call promptly, and he gives you a quotable comment you can drop in your story when you are minutes away from deadline. He's what we like to call the quote-a-matic of telecom reporting."

Apple's Cook Hits It Out of the Park

Apple made its annual iPhone announcement Tuesday, and there were several surprises, including one of those Steve Jobs "one more thing" moments. Now the question is, will the two new iPhones, Apple Pay and Apple Watch be a home run? Generally speaking, yes -- but with some caveats. The iPhone is coming in two new sizes. One is larger, meaning longer. The other is even larger, meaning even longer. The device itself is thinner, but the screen size is longer.

Jeff Kagan: The State of Sprint Recovery

By Jeff Kagan

September 11, 2014 11:43AM   

Tickers Mentioned: S T TMUS  VZ

New Sprint ($S) CEO Marcelo Claure spoke with David Faber of CNBC on the “Squawk on the Street” show this morning. It was a very good and eye-opening interview on the thinking of the new Sprint CEO and the new path he will be taking going forward to rebuild Sprint.

Over the last decade we have watched Sprint struggle. Early on they burned through several CEO’s. Then they hire hired Dan Hesse as CEO who managed to save and stabilize the company. Growth however was another challenge. A year ago Softbank acquired the majority of Sprint and poured lots of money to speed up the network re-build.

Now Marcelo Claure is the new CEO as we turn the page and start the next chapter of the Sprint story. Not only are there big changes at Sprint, but there are also big changes at Sprint’s competitors and in fact the entire industry.

There are many new CEO’s leading the wireless industry into a new frontier. Many expect this next chapter to be a much more competitive and noisy place than wireless has ever been. A real battleground.

There are new CEO’s at AT&T Mobility ($T), T-Mobile ($TMUS) and Sprint. I believe that means the competitive playing field will get much noisier as carrier’s battle each other for customers and market share.
