Dish Will Bid in 600Mhz Auction

They will also bid in the upcoming AWS-3 auction. They will bid for the standalone uplink 1695-1710 MHz, which will then be combined with their 2180-2200MHz downlink. They will also have a 25x5 chunk adjacent to Sprint's block G. I think they will trade that chunk for Sprint hosting their other spectrum. Sprint might also lease them a portion of EBS for fixed broadband.

If Dish can strong-arm AT&T into selling them their 700MHz D block spectrum in return for Dish's not opposing the DirectTV merger Dish will have 12MHz to use LTE Broadcast for special events such as the Super Bowl, Daytona 500, etc. Any other time that spectrum can get aggregated via carrier aggregation with one of their other downlinks. Maybe, Sprint can tie up with Dish somehow, not necessarily through a complete merger. I hope that Sprint has enough visionary thinkers that think strategically....

Well they could be doing this to drive prices up for Sprint or T-Mobile. Maybe it could be a deal in he making with Possibly deploying along side with sprint and sharing spectrum?

I hope something comes out of it.

Well what makes me curious now is will dish get a reserved chunk? And if so after the auction would the FCC allow a spectrum partnership, or trade of AWS for 600mhz spectrum(if they deal with T-Mobile)

Dish has spectrum, but does not have a network. They need to partner with somebody.

Partner or get its hands on Tmo or the Tmo sites that sprint wouldn't need...

 

Charlie must have some big plans to keep buying spectrum and not deploy

He can't deploy. It costs an arm and a leg. Just ask Sprint... :)

I known they have no infrastructure for wireless networks.But if they buy up spectrum they could be planning a sale afterwards and charge a premium

Why is Dish, a satellite tv provider, interested in offering LTE service at special events like the Super Bowl and Daytona 500?

Because they want to capture their fair share of cord cutters. People that want to watch live events on their tablets or laptops or even phones.

Had Sprint, Clearwire, and their ecosystem partners pushed on with WiMAX, I have oft wondered if they could have gotten the Lower 700 MHz unpaired D/E blocks from Qualcomm, AT&T, and/or Dish.  A 10 MHz TDD carrier in that spectrum would have done a lot to alleviate WiMAX coverage issues.

Yes, but it requires thinking out of the box!Oh, money as well...

The cynical side of me says it wouldn't have mattered what would have happened because no else really deployed WiMAX in a cellular setting like Sprint did.

    • I was down in southern TN last week when the update hit and then noticed that all of a sudden when my brother and I drove back down to Huntsville - knew I'd never seen the UC addendum before, now I know why.
    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use.
