Plot Thickens With Dish's Interest in Sprint, T-Mobile Wireless
The T-Mobile-Sprint merger has been dragging on for quite a long time, but it finally may be in the home stretch. To get the deal approved, Sprint and T-Mobile might have to sell off some of their wireless assets, and many were surprised by Dish Network’s interest. What would this mean for the merger and for the wireless industry as a whole? Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen has been playing an interesting role in this merger debate. It started with his opposition to the Sprint-T-Mobile merger on grounds that it would be bad for competition.
