I am not sure why Dish's alleged failure use it's wireless spectrum means they will be scooped up. I am also uncertain why this was discussed by T Mobile at CES.

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.

The obvious conclusion is that they are hinting at plans to buy/merge with Dish.

Not necessarily. You give him too much credit. Legere is a real goofball, he throws lot's of stuff against the wall, just to see if it will stick.

Just like his 5G speech.
He may have it out first, But His coverage will be over exaggerated like his LTE is now.

I saw that as a fallback option, which is what it has come down to now.

That may have been the intent but i think the way ot was all executed is odd.

The whole process of DISH getting the spectrum seems very nebulous. If actually put into motion it could have been a great move. Dare2be may be on to something, it sounds like a teenage boy who keeps saying they don't like a girl but really means he wants to be with her and get her assets....

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?

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.
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.

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.

The tech who installed my H3 was on his way after he left my house to do a recall on a Samsung washing machine. In my opinion, smart strategy on their part.
