Satellite TV giant Dish Network is ready to move on T-Mobile USA if the AT&T takeover falls through.
That’s according to well-sourced Bloomberg report today that doesn’t rely on the usual anonymous sources.
Dish Chief Executive Joseph Clayton told Bloomberg that his company may partner with T-Mobile to create a national wireless network for voice, video and data services.
Even if the AT&T deal goes through, Dish may pursue assets that AT&T and T-Mobile are required to divest to win regulatory approval, he told Bloomberg.
This sounds firmer than last month’s speculative report that Comcast or Time Warner would be interested in T-Mobile. Shortly after that one, those cable companies sold their huge block of wireless spectrum to Verizon.
