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.

Acquiring Leap?

If AT&T bought out Leap, what would happen to Cricket? Would they turn into an MVNO of AT&T then, or just dissolve?

Also, what's the likelihood that an AT&T buyout of Leap would get through the FCC or other government regulation?

Interesting questions.
