0. phoneArena 06 Aug 2013, 22:03 posted on

With rumors that Dish Networks is still interested in buying T-Mobile, Dish CEO Charles Ergen has either put an end to those rumors, or is a master at misdirection; during Dish's second quarter earnings conference call, the CEO said that a deal with the nation's fourth largest carrier "may be a challenge we wouldn’t feel comfortable taking on"...

I'm hoping that was a joke. I'm not good at detecting sarcasm through text.

It sounds more like he is saying he wants to work with Sprint for them to host his network on their towers. I mean, he says that they were better than him and that he wants to work with people who are better than him.

He knows he needs to build out that network quick too, or lose the spectrum that has spent so much on

Them being Softbank now not just Sprint, RIGHT! Softbank runs the train now so Sprint is simply the name kept for the wireless carrier.

** When I say Sprint I'm referring to the old Sprint (Hesse) prior to Softbank's acquisition.

The message I get is that Ergen still needs or and prefers Softbank formerly owned by Sprint which kept the Sprint name to do business with because he believe it's a better fitting glove, lol. He doesn't see T Mobile as viable to their plans for reasons unknown however if he was to go after T Mobile I believe he would rather buy it straight out to have 100% control in order to execute his diabolical plans, bwa hahahahaha.
