Dish’s LTE network won’t see the light of day until at least 2016

0. phoneArena 18 May 2012, 14:14 posted on

While there was some chatter in the air about a possible buyout of Dish Network by AT&T, nothing has really come of it and it looks like Dish is now in negotiations with the FCC to sketch out its plans for its own LTE build out. Unfortunately, they are now in the midst of a disagreement on a realistic timeframe...

As all the cell carriers raise rates and lower your data limits its easy to see the promise of smart phones is over. Back to the days of SMS and voice. The IPhone was just a flash in the pan.......... rest in peace

As a Dish Net customer of many years, the rumor of them droping AMC at the end of the month better not be true. I will not be missing "Walking Dead" or "Hell On Wheels". Be glad to go to Direct TV or AT&T's U-Verse.....

As a dish representative, you just lied. Guess that's a skill you took home with you. Your company dropped amc in a temper tantrum over being sued by VOOM HD, a subsidiary of amc. DISH violated contract with VOOM, and the amc drop is just a tactic to have the $2.8 billion lawsuit dropped after a judge gave DISH lawyers a verbal thrashing. You also will likely lose abc, cbs, nbc, fox, and their cable network subsidiaries over your autohop function, I'm sure there are no worries there either.

Well best of luck to Dish. The more wireless carriers the better, don't want some duopoly like ATT and Verizon calling the shots and racing each other to the bottom.
