Great

The more the merrier. Just hope they realize, like Clear/Sprint/LightSquared have discovered, building a 4G network takes lots of cash.

They now not only have thier satellite TV service but they own the entire Blockbuster chain and Hughesnet so I doubt cash is gonna be to big of a problem for them now if they play their cards right.

Sprint was done from the start. And will be done if they don't find anymore cash after the iPhone stunt to say "me too". L2 would have the network built if it wasn't for the GPS Systems. And Clear- never had the money to start and they're main investor/shareholder doesn't give a damn about them.

Yes but the fact is Dish Network is what is making all the money. So bringing up the other 2 is still rather pointless.

I didn't bring them up. But Dish can tie Blockbuster in with their TV services which they are. It also gives them the advantage where they can deploy streaming tv/movies without a problem. They're also in the game business as well. it gives them a LOT of areas to grab some $$$.

Here's your answer: »lmgtfy.com/?q=dish+acquires+hughesnet

Actually it was Echostar that acquired Hughesnet, not Dish, although Dish and Echostar used to be one.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Don't worry. Charlie has a lot of cash.
