E* just needs the wireless 4g network.......to be built
Note this is going to take a year to accomplish.
I wonder if this is for Puerto Rico? I do not think that they will be able to fit all the HD on 61.5, but they could make a lot happy in PR if they get the most popular ones restored back to 61.5
This is BS another slap in the face for PR. We are told we can not have programing from the 61.5 because they want everyone to have a single dish set up. Now they are offering a free wing dish and a free receiver for people who want the international channels. We don't even get the programs we pay for, looks like dish is willing to help everyone except PR
There are no plans to remove internationals from 118.7.
As far as PR goed, while I dont have details I am told that all Internationals will be available to PR at the time they are removed from 61.5.
What do you think they will use that spectrum for that they purchased a few years ago??
Imagine downloading VOD content (or IPTV) without bandwidth restrictions of your ISP. Who knows it could be 4G or some newer technology they use and have it built in the LNB and Receiver.
The pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place.
bigwillieb said:Plus, isn't dish buying DBSD and then Ecostar buying TerreStar. Both companies has a small part of the spectrum, so if those go through and with the spectrum they already got from the auction, 4G network like LTE can be built.
4G LTE is a joke. Yes it is fast but only with a 5 GB cap. I burn through that in about 9 days just streaming radio on my iPod touch. With Netflix watching it would last one to three days.
