AT&T Continues Quest for More Spectrum
AT&T has not let the government's denial of its proposed T-Mobile USA acquisition stop its hunt for additional spectrum resources. AT&T is having discussions with Dish Network, Leap Wireless, and MetroPCS about potential deals, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing sources familiar with AT&T's plans, the Journal says despite the active discussions, no firm deals are in place and it would be months before any such deals might be announced or come to pass. AT&T is said to be leaning towards acquiring Leap Wireless, though, because the two companies have had favorable relations in the past. None of the companies involved commented on the Journal's story.
