It looks like the final roadblock between Softbank's purchase of Sprint has gotten out of the way. Dish Network has pulled its bid to buy Sprint, and says that it will instead focus its efforts on acquiring Clearwire in its ongoing plans to build its own wireless carrier...

Build it's own wireless carrier??? That is a challenge. Double dawg dare them to make that work.

No it would not be hard for Dish to build its own wireless carrier? How do you figure?

DIsh is finished causing drama with softbank. now they will cause drama with clearwire. Sprint being the majority shareholder will not let it happen. Not sure what Dish doesn't get about that

I think Dish has officially proved their stupidity. They need to let go of Clearwire unless they want to be sued for millions of dollars and they will, since they are for certain violating delaware law. They need to start focusing their attempts on other networks that might actually help them roll out their network. Clearwire and their buyout offer will take several months and since they are now officially being brought to court, that will most likely favor Sprint, they are digging their own grave by not focusing on rolling out their network and the legal process could take years.
