We told you so – kind of.
Back on our latest webinar, both NWIDA and WiBoc offered Google as a potential player in the Boost buy. Now, the NY Post (link below) is reporting that Google and Dish are talking.
But, according to Google, in the same article, the answer is “No.”
The Post article clearly states:
Google is in talks to help create a fourth US wireless carrier, even as Sprint and T-Mobile struggle to get their controversial merger cleared with federal and state authorities,
However, a few lines down, the Post article also states:
“These claims are simply false. Google is not having any conversations with Dish about creating a wireless network” a Google spokesman said, declining to comment on whether Mulally was speaking to Dish.
The article reports that Alan Mulally — a former chief executive at Ford Motor and a current Alphabet director — has recently been in discussions with satellite-TV giant Dish Network about a plan to create a fourth US telecom player, sources said.
The idea is for Google and Dish to launch a new wireless giant with the help of assets acquired from T-Mobile, “There’s no question they are talking,” a source said of Mulally and the Dish execs.
Sources added the talks are in flux and could still fall apart, and that it’s not clear whether T-Mobile and Dish would immediately announce an agreement with Google if a deal is reached.
