Congratulations to both Dish and AT&T on this new deal. And sorry to T-Mobile. Earlier this week there was a major announcement. Dish will be an MVNO reseller of the AT&T Mobility network. That’s great news for Dish and their investors because they can finally get into the wireless business. It is also great news for AT&T and their investors as this is a big, new, long-term financial win for the company. T-Mobile, no so much.
If Dish can be successful at wireless, this can be great news for the wireless industry as a whole. Until last year, we had four top national wireless providers. At the time there were two stronger competitors, AT&T and Verizon, and two weaker ones, T-Mobile and Sprint.
