Dish Network and T-Mobile to Merge

There are talks going on between Dish Network and T-Mobile that might see the two companies coming together to form a formidable competitor in the communications industry. A source that insisted on anonymity confirmed to CNNMoney about the talks that were first outlined by the Wall Street Journal. But when contacted, the representatives of both companies declined to deny or confirm the talks.

The merger is logical in the sense that Dish Network has been acquiring vast amounts of wireless spectrum that T-Mobile could put into use. We expect the two companies to come up with new products and services using the spectrum; both companies’ connections to millions of households and Dish Network’s relationships with major media companies.

There is still no word on the structure of an eventual combination of the two companies or the purchase price. However, the Wall Street Journal said the two companies are “close to an agreement” about a leadership team. Charlie Ergen, Dish Network’s Chief Executive may become the company’s chairman, while John Legere, his T-Mobile counterpart could serve as the combined company’s CEO.

The merger talks are coming at a dramatic period when many telecommunications firms are trying to consolidate. For example, AT&T is trying to merge with DirecTV. AT&T is one of the T-Mobile’s larger rivals, while DirecTV is in fierce competition with Dish Network. Last week also saw Charter Communications announcing a plan to merger with Time Warner Cable to create a stronger competitor to the No. 1 cab.
