The AT&T / T-Mobile merger has fallen through, but that doesn’t mean that T-Mobile isn’t looking mighty fine to others. One such suitor is Dish Network. The satellite provider had been considered as a potential candidate to take over divested T-Mobile assets from AT&T if the merger wasn’t approved. Funny how Dish was also one of the biggest opponents of the merger. Well, now we know why.
Dish’s CEO Joseph Clayton has made it clear that Dish now wants to create a “national wireless network, video, voice, and data”. What? If this all works out, they would form a partnership with long-time industry leader T-Mobile. The deal would help both companies, T-Mobile would appear to be more stable and Dish would be able to come one step closer to offering the full spectrum of wireless services.
