DISH moves closer to getting financing for its $25.5B bid for Sprint (S), receiving signed commitment letters from 5 banks for $9B, reports the WSJ. Dish hasn't yet paid commitment fees as Charlie Ergen is waiting for Sprint's board to declare Dish's offer potentially superior to SoftBank's (SFTBF.PK) $20.1B bid. Earlier, Dish responded to SoftBank's touting of the benefits of it gaining control of Sprint.
