    What is the Spectrum Worth plus an IP Network?

    Mr. Ergen started assembling that spectrum for a total of about $3 billion half a decade ago. At a stroke, the FCC has now raised its value to as much as $12 billion, according to some analysts' estimates. Mr. Ergen has to do the hard work of putting that spectrum to use or getting FCC approval to sell it. (Wall Street Journal)

    Analysts say Verizon Wireless' recent deal to buy wireless spectrum from cable companies for $3.6 billion is great news for DISH Network because of the high premium the deal places on the satellite provider's spectrum holdings. If DISH sold its spectrum at the same rate as the cable companies, the deal would be worth $10 billion.(SmartBrief)

    And how much spectrum does DISH have?? Try 45Mhz or about 1/4 the amount of spectrum Clearwire holds and the DISH spectrum will not have nearly the supporting ecosystem around it that CLEAR has developing around its holdings.

    So assuming the analysts have no reason to inflate the value for DISH's spectrum holdings, what is a fair and reasonable value of Clearwires holdings PLUS the $3.5B of all IP networking? Sorry, no BS thats it's only worth wats offered for it, as no one offered to buy DISH's current holdings when they placed a value on it.
