📶 Dish’s wireless phone network finally goes live

T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger in 2020 only went through because Dish Network (yes, the satellite TV company) agreed to buy some of the company’s assets and turn itself into a new independent wireless network. After months of delays, the network is finally live in one city, with plans to arrive in 120 major metro areas before the end of the year.

There are only a handful of carriers that have their own networks in the United States, so I’m definitely excited to see another competitor crop up.
