Dish reportedly considering 2014 T-Mobile bid

Less than a week after rallying in response to a WSJ report that Sprint (S +2.3%) is considering a bid, T-Mobile USA (TMUS +2.2%) has moved higher on a Reuters report stating Dish (DISH +0.5%) is weighing a bid for the #4 U.S. carrier, and won't stand idly if Sprint makes an offer.

Charlie Ergen, thwarted this year in his efforts to buy Sprint/Clearwire and still looking to make use of Dish's 4G spectrum, has repeatedly stated he's open to a merger with T-Mobile.

    Yes, Sprint is on a tear. I just checked it a few weeks ago and decided to get back in at 7.00. It has gained nearly two bucks in a two weeks! Go Sprint. It will probably break 9 pps by Friday. But Nokia, what the hell is happening with them?


    But no matter I will sell out Nokia for Sprint if this keeps up.

    Well it is time to settle this mess and finally get a reliable phone, wireless and data communication system in the US.


    Overtime Dish has proven to be to messy in its accusation process and this should cost them their place in line.


    A Sprint / T-Mobile merger makes good sense. That will give the US three well structured and solid communication companies to provide services to its citizens. That's a good balance.

    The U.S. Government will not aprove a Sprint - T-Mobile merger as it will reduce competion & increase the hold that the wireless CARTEL has on the consumer.
    A Dish ,T-Mobile merger is more likely.
    The future of wireless is data not voice.
