| SAN ANTONIO, March 27
SAN ANTONIO, March 27 Japan's SoftBank Corp
is in talks with Dish Network Corp on a fixed
wireless broadband partnership, the chief executive officer of
SoftBank told Reuters on Thursday.
"They have the satellite and we have the network that we can
collaborate on. We are looking at a technology alliance and we
are doing some tests together," Masayoshi Son, the billionaire
CEO of SoftBank who gained control of Sprint Corp last
year, said on the sidelines of a conference in San Antonio.
Earlier this month, Son called the U.S. wireless market an
oligopoly plagued by slow speeds and high prices and said
Sprint could shake up the competition, but it would require a
scale that Sprint cannot reach alone.
