Could DISH be bluffing about its network plans?

Ergan is a shrewd player. He may sit pat or he could be up to something.

 

Financial analysts think that Dish Network may be bluffing about its intentions to fully build out a nationwide LTE Advanced network, and that the satellite company may be instead using that as a negotiating tactic to increase the value of its spectrum holdings.

I was thinking about that before, but it makes a lot of sense for them to build out a network and be able to offer an all dish package of TV, voip and internet to compete with cable companies

Now that would be a good selling point for them if they did that. And if it was cheap enough, I would consider signing up for it.

They could also partner with a cellphone provider like Sprint with a network hosting deal similar to LS2 and have one of the conditions be that they can bundle cell coverage in with the TV, home phone and internet.

Then they could compete with the Twin Bells and maybe even drive prices down.

If some of the rumors are still true, a hosting agreement with either Sprint or T-Mobile would be huge for either, preferably Sprint which would help make up for the LS2 loss.

 

I know I would love that. But I won't trust Charlie until the ink is dry and the first payment has been delivered. Or cashed, actually.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
