    They pay tmobile for network access, the only terms of the deal was that tmobile had to provide them a good rate.

    Dish likely did not get that good a deal from AT&T. There must be something going on in the background that would cause Dish to seek another carrier alliance. Boost users are going to have to get off CDMA. Yes, new phones and plans for many.

    There's also the spectrum sharing agreement that came with the deal. Dish has build-out requirements to meet. They have to cover 70% of the population by 2025, this is the easy part. 70% of the population live in only around 3% of the land mass of the u.s. The hard part is they have to cover 90% by 2027. That additional 20% covers a ton more area. If at&t is broadcasting the spectrum for for them, this makes their build out requirements much easier to meet. That part is kind of a win-win for both companies. At&t gets the added spectrum to use, and dish will also get the spectrum to use without having to actually build out.

    So you’re saying if AT&T is using their spectrum, that will satisfy the government requirements?

    The government regulators only cared about Dish building out a new 5G network. Not using existing spectrum to operate on a 4G network. Dish was only using an existing LTE network as a stopgap to 5G. May not matter which LTE network.

    It may. Dish customers would have access to this network.

    This should be a win for both dish and att. I'm not surprised dish went elsewhere with how vocal and unhappy they seemed to be with TMobile.

    I am surprised it happened this fast though.

    I think the future is unlimited wireless internet.

    T-Mobile has home unlimited wireless internet for $50 a month.

    Visible has phone unlimited wireless internet for $40 to $25 a month.

    Other companies will be coming out with unlimited wireless internet because of 5G.

    Also separating hotspot from data is going to have to go away.

    Boost needs to offer unlimited wireless internet and I doubt the AT&T deal is going to help them with that.

    Boost needs 5G to offer unlimited wireless internet.
