It looks like we should expect some changes from T-Mobile and Dish Network, where Bloomberg has reported that Dish Network's chairman, Charlie Ergen, has 'informally approached' T-Mobile's parent company about a possible merger deal.

Dish Network is reportedly interested in a deal with T-Mobile so they can bundle wireless services with their satellite TV offerings. The parent company, Deutsche Telekom, announced a sweetened bid for MetroPCD at around the same time the merger talks happened. Deutsche Telekom might consider Dish's proposal, but only after the transaction with MetroPCS closes, and after verifying that another, and separate, deal with Sprint isn't going to go ahead. This is all coming from people "close to the situation", according to Bloomberg.
