Re: Dish's spectrum
Thanks, Dan. I'll be as gentle as I can next time I'm out in Denver visiting Charlie at the ranch.

Re: Dish's spectrum
Here's another article I found that talks about Dish's 700MHz spectrum:

http://www.dailywireless.org/2011/08/25/dish-networks-700-mhz-spectrum-how-goes-it/

 

Of course that was years ago. They may have sold it off since then.

Re: Dish's spectrum
Well, he needs to pick one or the other and get it started ASAP.

Re: Dish's spectrum
Makes sense to me, Dan. Unfortunately for Mr. Ergen, he hates to spend the dough and he hates to partner. So we'll see which is the lesser of 2 evils for him.

Re: Dish's spectrum
If I knew that Alan, I'd be a mind reader!

Seems to me that, in an ideal world, he wants a nationwide 4G network to layer in with his services. Just doesn't seem willing to spend the years and 10s of billions it would take to make that happen.


So, to me, the likely outcome is partnering with a mobile provider and sharing the spectrum. Possibly this trial is the start of that process?

 

But then again... :-)

Re: Dish's spectrum
I just remember a lawsuit a while back about Dish wanting to use spectrum it got from Terrestar that is right next to Sprint's.

Here's an article talking about the suit settlement:

Re: Dish's spectrum
So what do you think Charlie really wants, Dan? He's never going to sell out Dish because he probably thinks he's going to live forever, along with John Malone and rupert Murdoch.
