Dish Network is reportedly eying T-Mobile should their merger with AT&T fail. In an interview with with Bloomberg, Dish Network’s CEO Joseph Clayton revealed that if Dish could combine their network with T-Mobile’s, they could have enough spectrum to compete with the top dogs: Verizon and AT&T.

“We’re not interested in making money on selling our spectrum. We want to use it to create a national wireless network, video, voice and data. We’ve got expertise in satellite-TV, and we will in satellite broadband. The voice part, we’ll need some help with.”

If the T-Mobile/AT&T merger fails, I have a feeling we’ll see a lot more companies like Dish Network come out of the woodwork and attempt to pick up the scraps.
