The cost and uncertainty caused by the Federal Communications Commission’s decision not to allow a pair of Dish Network affiliates to take obtain $3 billion in “small business” bidding discounts in the AWS-3 spectrum auction has thrown such a major wrinkle into Dish Network’s wireless plans that company Chairman Charlie Ergen said the firms’s best—though clearly not his preferred—option could be to throw in the towel on the wireless business and sell or lease the spectrum holdings it has amassed.

AT&T'S STICHES TOGETHER 'SEAMLESS' FUTURE
Portraying a future that in two to three years will provide a “seamless” and “unified” offering including DirecTv’s DBS service and AT&T fiber and wireless data services inside and outside customers’ homes, AT&T executives argued recently the company has promotional offers already in place that are pushing the company forward on that path.
