Re: Kingmaker Maybe Dish has to look like it will invest and become a fourth competitor to elicit bids for the spectrum from incumbents?

Even with a $10 billion build cost (plus spectrum costs) it will still need to find substantial annual capex to stay in the game. Sounds expensive.

Re: Kingmaker The only real leverage it has is that it's the only company that has stepped forward as a possible fouth nationwide competitor, which is what the DoJ wants, what it really, really wants.

Re: I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want I did not until I read your comment.

Kingmaker Good piece. Interesting analysis.

Question from an overseas reader: does Dish really have this much leverage that the deal can't go ahead without its participation?
