Dish Network is talking to several banks about providing financing for a bid for wireless carrier T-Mobile that would include up to $15 billion in cash, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Journal said Dish is considering borrowing between $10 billion and $15 billion to fund the cash portion of a T-Mobile bid. The bid for the fourth largest wireless carrier in the country would consist mainly of stock.
