Dish CEO Denies Sale Rumors
Insists Focus is on Building LTE Network
Speaking at CES this week Dish Network CEO Joe Clayton said the company is open to all options when it comes to finding partners for their nationwide LTE network ambitions, but that the company has no plans to sell the company or its assets
. Dish found itself at the center of rumors that the company could be sold to AT&T, as part of a press and Wall Street narrative insisting that AT&T need to buy somebody
on the heels of the failed T-Mobile deal -- just because. Dish says they can have their new LTE network (supposedly branded "Ollo
") three years after getting FCC regulatory approval.
