Dish Network has long been known for its satellite TV service, but over the last year or so, the company has made a number of efforts towards branching out to become a true ISP. The company has also tried to break into the wireless world, as well — potential partnerships with T-Mobile, Google, and Clearwire have all been discussed at one point or another. The company is even trying to build out its own LTE network. Follow along with all of Dish's efforts here.
Proposed deal would create a single network for mobile, broadband, and TV
Dish Network is planning to launch a new nationwide satellite broadband service providing speeds of up to 15Mbps to rural areas lacking reliable cable access.
Both MetroPCS and T-Mobile are urging the FCC to make Dish give up half of its wireless spectrum.
