According to Fiercewirelees Dish is looking to hire a CMO first to start up the wireless part of the business.

The fact that they are hiring a CMO first means that they will probably be an MVNO to either Sprint or T-Mobile. Probably lease Dish's spectrum in exchange.

Sprint makes sense because of the available 2.5 GHz spectrum. If Dish markets video as the selling point of their service, then they will need vast amounts of spectrum and Sprint has plenty. On the other hand, Sprint does not really need Dish's spectrum. They could use Dish's spectrum near their PCS Block G.

T-mobile makes sense because they need Dish's spectrum a lot more than Sprint, so it will cost Dish a lot less. I don't think Tobile's network currently can accommodate Dish's demands.

Maybe they can start by being an MVNO of Sprint and then choose either or both providers to host their spectrum.

Lots of behind the scenes negotiations between Att and dish / ergen.

Wow, so all the T-Mobile love is just posturing? Are you talking about a spectrum sale? Hosting? How will it play in terms of the ATT/Directv merger? Coopetition? Edited by bigsnake49

Spectrum sale and hosting.

 

Specifically my area and surrounding areas and no doubt elsewhere they're targeting pcs H block and adjacent holdings.

 

Word is that they'll utilize it for wireless to the home service using 4x4 mimo equipment or similar technologies via macro sites and small cell pico sites feeding from the neighborhood uverse fiber to the node cabinets which are spaced in a manner that no subscriber can't be fed less than 24 Mbps on copper (so a 3-4000' or so from each other at max).

 

No idea on how the hell Att is going to pay the billions to do it along with their other domestic and international adventures.

What is a CMO?

 

I was wondering that very thing.  The article just starts using the acronym without ever defining it for those of us who aren't corporate executives.

It would make much more sense for Sprint to host the spectrum adjacent to PCS G (PCS H + 2000-2020MHz)

I know, hence why I was joking. But it seems that a CTO would be a better choice to "jump start" Dish's moribund, meandering wireless business.

It will be interesting to see what ends up happening since Dish has flirted around with Sprint, T-mobile and now ATT. Verizon must feel left out ????

I wrote a topic post here this morning about the Dish possibilities, among others : http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/6990-googlesprint-and-a-little-bit-of-disht-mobile/

 

I'm hoping Dish will purchase T-Mobile, or at least sell their spectrum to T-Mobile, particularly here in Chicago, since T-Mobile needs it in order to bring up their AWS LTE, at least sell maybe a 5x5 portion of AWS spectrum to T-Mobile here in their Chicago market, so T-Mobile, which already is bringing AWS LTE here to 15x15 in July, with this added spectrum could bring it up to 20x20.

Look at it this way, we can see the DeathStar implode (to quote Oasis) like "Champagne Supernova in the Sky"...

Aws3 is not compatible with current phones.

AT&T probably sees it more like this:

 

Now witness the fire power of this fully-armed and operational battle station!

 

But of course we all know that didn't work out as expected.

Yea... AJ and Robert flying their X-Wing Fighters, skimming the surface of the start at light speed.  They know where to hit them...

That is one scary "Star Wars" character.  I wonder what it looks like underneath its mask...

So the spectrum sold at the auction was spectrum that doesn't work for currently available devices?

Uh, yeah.

 

But if you did not know that, you are qualified to run a T-Mobile news web site.

 

:P

I read so many wireless websites that have conflicting information where some said it did and some said it did not. I was just meaning to verify it here on S4GRU. Plus, it had been awhile since I read about the technical specifics and with everything ongoing in my life, including my pain management situation, I wasn't really thinking about the inner working of AWS3.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
