  • Ergen: DISH's Clearwire bid is win-win for Sprint
    DISH Network Chairman Charlie Ergen pleaded his case for Sprint Nextel to accept the satellite TV provider's bid for Clearwire, saying it would allow his company to help Sprint fund the wireless network. The companies would not be likely to pool their resources if Clearwire rejects DISH's offer, he said. "Sprint and DISH match up pretty well with where our spectrum is. Sprint has publicly talked about a network vision to build a network to be shared by other people," Ergen said after DISH reported earnings Wednesday.

  • Leap seeks 4G partnerships, pares capital spending
    Leap Wireless reported a net loss of 337,000 subscribers for the fourth quarter on Wednesday, and the prepaid carrier said it would curtail capital spending by up to 37% and seek more partnerships for hooking up subscribers to 4G service rather than building out its own network. "By far and away the biggest thing is the device pricing and the ability for customers to pay for the device," CEO Doug Hutcheson told analysts. Revenues fell by 1.5% from a year ago.
