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.

Now, this this would be a deal that the DOJ and FCC can agree on. This would be the other option that would probably make most people happy and keep T-Mobile in existence. I guess the only thing to wonder is, would DT keep TMO or would they still want to sell it? If so, would Dish be willing to buy and not just partner with them?

Things to make you say, "hmmmm".

I accidentally posted to another article, for those who are wondering about the title of this post. :/
Next thing you know,we hear: "Dish Network merging with AT&T" Laughing
