S Softbank still working around the fed red tape.
Dish is sitting/waiting - interested but not in a mood of a battle against S.
Now Carlos with plenty of cash - Tracfone can lower the cost of airwave expense by owning instead of renting it form V.
It really is two. Dish or Carlos cannot take on Softbank on their own. But they can combine resources to bid for T-Mobile. Slim breaks into US market is a big way...doubles his Tracfone profits and Dish can make a strong play for a wireless carrier along with its fixed wireless broadband vision much like Son is speculating he can do with T-Mobile.
Problem with your math is that Sprint and Dish has a signed partnership agreement and Not all the facts are out on that partnership. alsoT-Mobile has a much smaller build out then Sprints and Sprint is also in agreements to share Spectrum with many smaller players something T-mobile has not done.
Son has been up against the FCC / Gov. and the FTC and is well aware of what will have to be done to get approval Slim has Not .
My guess is if and I say if Slim looks to the U.S. market it will be through smaller players in my opinion.
So my main question is why is TMUS at $31 and lower if the Bid was to be $40 a share don't make sense to me
