Re: If they can't get Clearwire, why not buy T-Mobile?
Dish has 0% interest in providing LTE. They are looking at spectrum as gold. Ie it will go up a lot. So tell the FCC they will deploy or release the spectrum. After they buy the spectrum that AT&T can't right now, they resell to AT&T after squatting on it for a value increase to help cover it's massive debt. They could also use it when time comes to try and get a buyer for Dish who wouldn't touch it due to it's debt load except for the high end spectrum portfolio.
So in other words, Dish has no plans at all to do anything with that spectrum except to sit on it and let it gain value.
So much for the pipe dream of having some strong competition against the big two carriers.
