Dish leapfrogs Sprint with aggressive new bid for Clearwire

The satellite company is now offering $4.40 per share, beating Sprint's enhanced offer of $3.40

By , IDG News Service |  Mobile & Wireless

The decision on a suitor for Clearwire depends on the owners of the roughly half of the company's shares that don't belong to Sprint. About half of those remaining shares are held by Comcast, Bright House Networks and Intel, original Clearwire partners that have said they are committed to voting for Sprint to take over the company. The remaining minority shareholders include some, such as Crest Financial, that have fought Sprint's offer.
