I have to be honest. The longer Dish doesn't do anything in wireless, the more correct the people who said Charlie bought the spectrum just to sell it later for a profit look.
Most homes and apartments i work in nowdays have online tv services only. No cable or satellite video services. Internet based streaming only and very few indoor or putdoor antennas.Dish does have some major issues. They can no longer survive on being a video only company.
They need to offer their own branded internet service. Hughesnet does not count.
Based on my experience in the on-site service industry, I'm guessing that Dish wants to fill the 'dead' time in their technicians schedule with other revenue bearing activities. Dish needs a minimum number of technicians in a given geographic area in order to meet resonable service levels for Dish. But there is time for other activies too.Recently I upgraded to the Hopper 3 and noticed that the Dish Network van was advertising that Dish repairs cell phones. When I asked the tech about it, he said that they also repair appliances now too.
I still can not figure out what Dish is trying to accomplish with this new line of business, any thoughts?
