We are excited to announce the official addition of Boost Mobile into the DISH family. A big welcome to our new colleagues, thousands of independent retailers and millions of customers joining us for this next chapter. This acquisition marks our formal entrance into the retail wireless industry — and we’re proud to partner with our new Boost teams to offer better pricing and service to customers nationwide. Today we continue our journey of changing the way the world communicates!
A big DISH welcome to one of the wireless industry’s experts, Dave Mayo. He's joining our team as EVP of Network Development, and will lead our wireless buildout strategy to execute the nation's first standalone 5G wireless network deployment. We're excited to get to work!
This year, the team decided to celebrate Take Your Kids to Work Day with a little twist. We invited DISH Nation to give us a glimpse into what it's like to work from home with their new "co-workers." Take a look!
Today is an important step forward in our journey to change the way the world communicates. Federal Judge Victor Marrero approved the T-Mobile-Sprint merger. This proposed merger paves the way for DISH to purchase Sprint’s Boost prepaid mobile business and continue our work to deploy the nation’s first virtualized, standalone, 5G broadband network.
Join us in welcoming Marc Rouanne and Stephen Bye to the DISH Wireless family. "I think we have a unique opportunity [at Dish]. And we're all gonna look back in five to ten years and say, 'Wow, just look at what happened to this industry. We had a hand in making that happen.' " – Stephen Bye http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMDUs
At DISH, we’re working to better serve our people, our community, and our planet. We recently earned recognition as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in Colorado. Caity Curtis, Head of Corporate Citizenship said it best: "Our overarching goal is to make a positive impact by connecting team members and DISH resources with the local communities we and our customers call home."
On Friday, July 26th, DISH reached several key agreements to help us accelerate our plans to build out the nation’s first standalone 5G network. These agreements include the purchase of Sprint’s prepaid mobile business (including Boost Mobile), Sprint’s low-band wireless spectrum, and full nationwide access to the new T-Mobile network. This means our customers will see more innovation, more choices, and better experiences. We’re excited for our future, and we hope you are, too!
