Dish to build 5G IoT network

To fulfill the FCC's buildout requirement. From what I gather from this article:

They will build an all-IP, C-RAN based network. They are open to partnerships with already existing wireless providers and or cable networks.

Hopefully they go with T-Mobile.

It seems like the partnership is only for buildout purposes as opposed to actually having the carrier use the spectrum since it would be narrowband 5G operations and almost strictly for IoT only. If they partnered with Comcast, they split costs to deploy their respective spectrum. If they deployed with a wireless carrier, they'd have access to infrastructure already to build out the network. They each have their respective benefits.

They are going to bother keeping 700E?  I'd try to just do a short sale to AT&T. 

 

I don't see Dish selling to anyone and still wanting a lot of say in a partnership.  I think any partnership would just be a glorified lease agreement.  IMO Dish should just start building out in some major markets.  Get to a point and sell unlimited for like $40/mo.

5G is more IoT friendly in that it can accommodate narrowband more readily and has lower latency so it can be used for control as well as data acquisition.
