Dish lends spectrum to T-Mobile to bolster network capacity

Monday 16 March 2020 | 10:03 CET | News
Dish agreed following a request from FCC to provide its entire portfolio of 600 MHz spectrum to T-Mobile at no cost for 60 days. The step was taken as the US responds to the spread of Covid-19, which has led to the closure of businesses, schools and large gatherings. Dish's 600 MHz spectrum will enhance T-Mobile's network nationwide as wireless users increasingly turn to mobile networks for work and personal use.
