Dish Looking to Follow in LightSquared's LTE Footsteps
Dish Networks has petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to allow it to build a Long Term Evolution-Advanced 4G network using repurposed S-Band satellite spectrum it purchased from TerreStar. Dish has a 40MHz patch of spectrum and it is seeking the same exception granted to LightSquared by the FCC earlier this year to use the S-Band spectrum for terrestrial services. Dish believes that by offering mobile broadband it will be able to more effectively compete with other telco companies that can bundle voice, data, and video services together.
telco is desperate
lets just hope their broadband is better then their tv service
