T-Mobile CEO: Talking to Clearwire about hookup

Move the story about Clearwire and T-Mobile USA hooking from “rumor” to “maybe.”

Speaking to investors in Frankfurt today, T-Mobile Chief Executive Robert Dotson confirmed the company’s been talking to Clearwire and other companies about joint ventures that would give T-Mobile additional spectrum, Reuters reported.

“We continue to look at JV opportunities for additional spectrum… there are a number of different options we look at, (we) have been talking with cable companies, with Clearwire,” Dotson said.

Bloomberg reported in September that T-Mobile’s parent, Deutsche Telekom, was in talks with Clearwire and others, but it was using unnamed sources and the companies would not comment at the time.

In clarifying the status today, Dotson also downplayed the chances of a merger with Sprint, saying, “What you never want to do is take one company that is going through challenges and take another company going through challenges.”
