Dish Networks' CEO Joseph Clayton said that Dish would consider forming a business partnership with T-Mobile USA if AT&T's attempt to acquire the network operator falls through. Clayton said that Dish would look to merge its own spectrum assets with those of T-Mobile USA in order to make an entity capable of competing with AT&T and Verizon Wireless. "We're not interested in making money on selling our spectrum,” said Clayton in the interview with Bloomberg. "We want to use it to create a national wireless network, video, voice and data. We've got expertise in satellite-TV, and we will in satellite broadband. The voice part, we'll need some help with." Clayton also said that Dish would consider buying any divested assets if AT&T is eventually allowed to purchase T-Mobile. Last, Dish would also consider partnering with Sprint and Clearwire if things don't work out with T-Mobile.
