T-Mobile continues to shake up the status quo with its Un-carrier program, while Sprint seeks to regain the challenger position with new tariff plans and pricing promotions. AT&T and Verizon have responded with some pricing deals of their own. In gigabit services, Google and AT&T remain the most prominent players. The AWS-3 auction concluded in January 2015, with AT&T emerging the big winner.

Highlights

T-Mobile is an innovator in the US mobile market. It was the first to popularize equipment installment plans (EIPs) for devices, which is now shifting the market away from a subsidized model. Meanwhile, Sprint introduced the handset leasing model to the US market, and T-Mobile is now offering this option as well.
Gigabit service deployments are growing in the US, with Google and AT&T remaining the most prominent companies, rolling out 1Gbps speeds in multiple markets.
It has been a busy year with M&A in the pay-TV segment. The FCC has reviewed or is reviewing several major deals this year: AT&T/DirecTV, Comcast/Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter/TWC/Bright House, Altice/Suddenlink, and Altice/Cablevision.
