Just when it seemed that Sprint's deal to buy the shares of network wholesaler Clearwire that it didn't own was about to come to a conclusion, Dish Network once again leapfrogged Sprint's bid with a higher one of its own; the new bid from Dish is $4.40 a share in cash or $6.3 billion.

Dish Network is becoming extremely annoying... they just need to stay away and stay out of the wireless arena. They are already a half-rate satellite company who outsource American jobs, we dont need another half-rate wireless carrier sending mroe jobs overseas. Get real.

I think Sprint should completely deny Dish their bid to own 100% of their company because Dish is sitting there wanting to own all of Sprint yet is also trying to side step Sprint into owning Clearwire. Yeah I may not be a business major or anything but even I know that is pretty messed up of them.

I hope the shareholder meeting carries on as planned tomorrow and they vote for Sprint and not dish.

They only reason clearwire stocks are rising is because of dish. Verizon and Att execs are probably rolling their eyes. If it wasnt for these two companies, the stocks would be selling for pennies to Verizon and Att or even Sprint because the first two could care less.
