US: Comcast not interested in buying T-Mobile

 |  June 17, 2015

US cable company Comcast Corp is not interested in buying wireless carrier T-Mobile US,Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

Manager Magazin of Germany, citing sources, had said earlier that the largest U.S. cable operator was in talks with T-Mobile US parent Deutsche Telekom AG about buying the No. 4 U.S. wireless provider.

Deutsche Telekom is in talks with several parties, including satellite provider Dish Network Corp, but sees Comcast as a better candidate because it is financially stronger and would be able to make an offer to buy all shares of T-Mobile US, Manager Magazine reported.

Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Dish and T-Mobile were in early-stage discussions about a deal, which would be the latest in a wave of telecom and pay-TV mergers as companies look to offer more services for customers.
