T-Mobile and Sprint are in talks with regional wireless carriers C Spire, Shenandoah Telecommunications (Shentel), and U.S. Cellular in addition to Dish Network as the merging carriers seek ways to divest assets to create a fourth large wireless company, said a sector banker and an industry source.

Vancouver-based copper and zinc producer Nevsun Resources is in a “very advanced stage of discussions” with parties interested in acquiring a stake or the whole of the company to fend off a hostile bid from Lundin Mining, a source close to Nevsun’s Serbian subsidiary Rakita told CTFN.
