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.”
