Bullet Dodged: Bloomberg Reports Comcast Not Interested in Buying T-Mobile

June 17th, 2015 at 3:41 PM
Comcast T-Mobile Merger Rumor Denied

Pheeeewwww. That was a close one. American wireless users’ hearts collectively seized earlier on Wednesday after reports came out claiming that T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom was in talks to unload the scrappy wireless carrier onto Comcast. Bloomberg is now reporting, however, that Comcast is apparently not interested in buying the “Un-carrier” and that Comcast is right now reluctant to put another massive merger deal in front of regulators after the collapse of its deal with Time Warner Cable.

Instead, it looks like Dish is still the front runner to buy up T-Mobile, although Bloomberg’s sources indicate that talks between Dish and Deutsche Telekom are basically nonexistent.

“Charlie Ergen, Dish’s chief executive officer, has engaged T-Mobile’s management with deal discussions rather than German parent Deutsche Telekom,” Bloomberg’s source claims. “While Deutsche Telekom is aware of the talks, the board and management are still deciding how seriously to take a potential Dish offer.”

It’s entirely possible that the earlier story was part of a clever leak to spur Dish to get more competitive with its bidding, although at this point we’ll really never know. All we do know is that Comcast doesn’t seem to have any interest in buying up T-Mobile, which will be a relief for millions of wireless subscribers.
