No doubt, thanks to the aligning of Dish's goals with those of the FCC in developing as much national broadband capacity as possible and the continued extension to reaching those currently underserved as well as a major desire by the FCC to see additional competition within the mobile data space, and moreover in the wireless market as a whole in order to combat what has increasingly moved towards a duopoly within that sector.
This has greatly benefited Dish and appears as though it will soon be benefiting Globalsat as the FCC has been generously willing to provide the necessary waivers to allow for the alteration in the use of satellite spectrum so that it can be utilized in a modern manner for the development of, or expansion by way of merger with one of the weaker providers.
As Dish seems sure to succeed in their acquisition of LS2 assets they will then be positioned in a rather appealing manner, pretty flush with spectrum holdings of which LS2 felt their portion was sufficient for the deployment of a nation wide mobile data network, thus adding to that basically an equal amount of spectrum already held by Dish and you've got something very appealing.
As Ergen mentioned, thanks to their bidding on Sprint they gained access to DD of highly private and secure internal Sprint documents which according to Ergen showed a great deal of synergies and a very attractive fit between the spectrum held by each company. There is no doubt that either Sprint or Tmobile would be very interested in forming some sort of partnership with Dish as it would greatly strengthen their existing data networks as well as bring in Dish's 11million subs, and most of all provide the combined force with the advantage of the lone wireless provider which also offers pay tv services, services which take tv everywhere to a level only dreamed of at this point and highly desired to be achieved regarding functionality of such a degree so strongly sought after and pursued by all pay tv providers
