Dec 21, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Dish Network may be a target for AT&T, after the telecommunications company failed in its attempt to purchase T-Mobile USA, reports Bloomberg, citing an analyst report.

AT&T is "desperate for spectrum,’ notes Stifel Nicolaus analyst Christopher King, according to the story.

Dish, the second-largest U.S. satellite-TV company, bought DBSD North America and TerreStar Networks this year to gain their spectrum licenses, the piece notes. AT&T may have its best shot at improving its wireless network by purchasing Dish, King said, according the story.

AT&T declined to comment.
