Dish Network (DISH) and T-Mobile (TMUS) are close to a merger agreement that would mark another instance of recent consolidation deals amongst U.S. communications companies as traditional media grapples with changing business dynamics in the Internet era, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

According to the WSJ, semantics over the end price and cash versus stocks considerations have not been agreed upon.

The deal comes on the heels of a pair of major agreements—the $49 billion deal between AT&T (T) and DirectTV (TWC) and Bright House Networks. The latter deal came together in a hurry after Comcast Corp’s (CMCSA) bid for Time Warner Cable collapsed under regulatory pressure.
