Not to disrespect any Sprint fans, but I am more so hoping that Dish partners with Google. We need a company that isn't a major carrier to come in and disrupt the status quo. And with Google, everything would be taken care of via data only instead of having to use a voice, messaging, and data plan like Sprint would probably want done.

Dish should just buy T-metro and form under google or partner with and just kill the fourth and third position with one stone. Run it with a hybrid CDMA/GSM network at well see how long AT&T will hold on for.

um no thanks on the hybrid, i've already got enough radios running gsm/lte, no need for yet another one. CDMA is inferior anyway, not to mention a dead end tech now
