Sprint Nextel is said to be in talks about forming a partnership with DISH Network that would provide the carrier with access to the satellite provider's untapped mobile spectrum in return for allowing DISH to provide wireless service over Sprint's network, according to a Bloomberg report. In such an arrangement, the companies could share revenues or DISH could be asked to pay for use of Sprint's network. Also, DISH is expected to start selling cellphones in its Blockbuster video rental locations, according to a source. DISH is awaiting a ruling this week from federal regulators about the status of its wireless spectrum.
