AT&T Will Have to Do Something About Spectrum
AT&T will have to acquire more spectrum to support its fourth-generation network plans, most believe. The only question is what it can do to acquire that spectrum without triggering another regulatory battle.
Dish Network seems to many the safest and most-logical bet. Dish has no mobile or telecom subscribers and therefore would not represent another horizontal size issue for AT&T.
Dish owns satellite spectrum acquired from DBSD North America and TerreStar Networks that Dish has proposed to reuse for a Long Term Evolution network. AT&T Bid for Dish?
