Let the games begin - AT&T, Verizon, Google, Sprint, T-Mobile, DTV...who will buy DISH?
Now that the AWS-4 is cleared for terrestial 4G, the best use of that spectrum is by the established players...not DISH. DISH knows that. 4G is a money pit. Only Verizon and AT&T are profitable....no other US wireless provider is economically profitable. The market can only support a limited number of players because of the massive infrastructure costs involved. Operators are overbuilding each other....how much network duplication should there be? It's economically inefficent and the market can't support such redundancy.
