AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson affirmed the telecom's interest in investing in Europe at "good value," saying the regulatory environment precluded the company from making significant deals in the U.S,. In doing so, he hinted strongly that the carrier had eliminated DISH Network as a strategic option. "We have pretty much written off that any kind of large-scale deal in our sector is going to get done," Stephenson told an investor conference on Tuesday. Stephenson's remarks came on the heels of Vodafone Group's sale of its Verizon Wireless asset, a move that could open up the European market for AT&T.
