Dish Network gives up on LightSquared purchase

LightSquared is a company that filed bankruptcy last year that tried to bring broadband internet to the masses using wireless spectrum. The problem for the company was that the FCC torpedoed the plans the company had for wireless broadband. Dish Network was one of the companies that have been circling the company wanting to pick up the wireless spectrum that was never used.

Dish offered $2.2 billion for LightSquared, but the deal was turned down. The main shareholder in the bankrupt LightSquared company, Harbinger Capital Partners, said that offer undervalued the assets. Reports now indicate that dish has backed away from any purchase of LightSquared.

Reuters reports that Dish Network could disclose its letter of termination for the company today. There is no indication of whether or not LightSquared has any more suitors looking to purchase its assets. No official comments have been made by Dish or LightSquared at this time.

Dish Paid in Bitcoin by Filmmakers to Promote Documentary About Bitcoin

Source: variety

Is the fact that you are a business accepting payment in a crypto-currency of uncertain origin, with a highly volatile exchange rate, something to brag about?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
