DishNetwork Wireless?

Could a DishNetwork cell network hit a neighborhood near you? It sounds slightly crazy given the company’s main focus is satellite TV. But according to an interview between Bloomberg and DishNetwork CEO Joseph Clayton the possibility is very real.

After acquiring wireless spectrum from the purchases of DBSD North America Inc. and Terrestar Networks Inc., Dish needs an established wireless network to build out on. Potential partners/acquisitions could include Sprint and/or Clearwire.

While Sprint is singing praises of an incoming iPhone specifically for their network, getting acquired wouldn’t be the worst idea considering the continuing slump in sales/customer additions/revenue.

With that said, there is still plenty of work needed behind the scenes before DishNetwork could actually launch a full-fledged network.
