Dish to build 5G IoT network

Recommended Posts

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.

    • You may be right, and by no means am I saying I'd be happy paying more.  I just meant to express that in the big picture right now, and in my case scenario - the impact is negligible really...both (a) compared to my expectations going in but even far moreso (b) the comparative scale against a *slew* of other things where I'm having to pay far more than I used to, which really even was more of a catalyst behind what I posted than I stated upfront.  Some angles of inflation are just insane frankly, and $2-5 a line just isn't remotely near what I'd call a poster child example currently.  I still never received any text all that said btw...maybe the increases (***for now) only impacted native T-Mo older plans perhaps? 🤔
    • I forgot to mention, the 6.1 update kinda fixed one annoying bug for those of us who band lock. There has been a bug where when locked to NR-SA, if the phone overheats something will crash, you will lose signal and you can't change to any other bands without a restart. The loss of signal still occurs but now you can move back to LTE without restarting. 
    • May security update is out for TMO S22U
