ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
DISH Network Corp. (NASDAQ: DISH) issued the following statement in
response to the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) announcement
of the AWS-3 auction (Auction 97) results:
"DISH congratulates Chairman Wheeler, the other Commissioners, FCC
staff, NTIA and Congress on the record-setting success of the AWS-3
auction. As part of the auction process, we publicly filed an
application to participate as a potential bidder, and DISH invested in
two entities that also publicly applied to participate in the auction as
designated entities. The auction's success is a win for the FCC, the
American Taxpayer, the Public Safety community and small
business. Because of the FCC's anti-collusion rules, however, we are not
able to discuss further at this time."
