Believe it when I see it. He has a year and 7 months to build it all out before 2020 deadline.
Pretty sure Amazon, Sears and Samsung will disagree with thatAnd since we are on the subject of partnerships, nobody wants to partner with Dish. Every partnership has ended badly for the company who decided to take a chance and work with Dish.
The only partnerships that work for Dish are the ones where they buy the other company.
Is it just me or does Claude really not like Dish ? I think he actually is in a love Hate relationship with Dish that’s why he is always posting in the Dish Forum.Maybe it’s about time to give Charlie a Big hug and move on .
Meanwhile At&T and others continue to roll out fiber to everywhere.
Never thought this time last year I would actually see fiber at my house.
He is just using it to put on his biggest bluff ever and have someone like Verizon or AT&T buy all his spectrum and maybe his failing satellite television business with it.
be careful, I used to challenge things that guy said about Dish all the time and moderator threaten to ban me. he has a lot of pull on this fourm
I agree with you about the advantages of satellite.I think satellite will have advantages that will help it compete with OTT. A consolidated EPG, real DVR, no Internet use required. Etc.
So the co-op is running fiber. What ever happened to that prospect of powerline internet that some were talking about a few years ago? I would have thought if it were doable it would have been far cheaper than running fiber.AT&T most other investor owned providers are rolling out fiber mainly in urban and suburban areas.
I NEVER EVER thought I would see fiber here. Luckily my rural electric co-op is running fiber to the whole county. They have began to run cable down the road I live on right now. It is a very rural area, maybe 2 or 3 subscribers per mile on average. We should have 1Gbps availability here by the end of this year or first of next year.
There will always be a need for DBS in rural markets, and once all of the cord cutting levels off, Dish could end up being the only DBS player. Of course that will be years out.

Broadband over power line was always a bad idea. It caused interference, to boot.
So I’m suspicious of ATT’s new version.
