Dish Wants Spectrum

It seems that Dish is very intent on acquiring spectrum to extend beyond its satellite delivery.  Not only have they put a bid for Sprint/Clearwire but they are also bidding on the assets of bankrupt Lightsquared.  And Dish remains in the hunt with Sprint.  "Dish Network’s month-long attempt to acquire Sprint Nextel moved a step forward Monday after the wireless giant said it had received a waiver of various provisions in its merger agreement with Softbank that would allow it to conduct due diligence discussions with the satellite TV service provider." 

Of course both acquisitions come with hurdles and may take years to help Dish compete more effectively in the wireless space.  And the biggest challenge, overtaking the current leaders in the broadband and cellular space.
