DISH is transforming the future of connectivity. We’re doing it with the country’s first virtualized, standalone 5G wireless network built from scratch, free of the limitations of the past. Our wireless teams are at the helm of a communications revolution, building a multi-brand wireless telco from the ground up and reinventing how Americans view their mobile carrier. And now, with our acquisition of Boost, we’re bringing nine million mobile customers along for our latest industry gate-crash. In our first year, we’re entering the postpaid market — with plans to eventually convert our businesses to run on our very own state-of-the-art network. We are poised to emerge as the nation’s fourth facilities-based wireless carrier and a disruptive force in the market at-large. Connecting people and things is only the first step. After that? Driverless cars, smart communities and the potential to power a connected world.
