Dish’s Boost Mobile Network Will Be Shut Down by January 2022, According to Dish
dish fcc tmobile cdma dish mobilefriedaxios Dish’s Boost Mobile is a great way to get the most out of your Dish satellite TV service. However, Dish is complaining that T-Mobile is rushing to shut down the CDMA network that Boost Mobile uses. Currently, T-Mobile plans to shut down its CDMA network by January 2022, according to Dish. This is a problem because millions of Boost Mobile customers still use the CDMA network, according to Dish.
T-Mobile plans to shut down its CDMA network in January 2022
Earlier this month, T-Mobile revealed that it plans to shut down its CDMA network by January 2022. The company said that it needs to do so in order to increase the amount of bandwidth available for its new 5G broadband network. It has begun sending emails to Sprint customers, informing them of the change.
According to T-Mobile, the delay will give partners “every opportunity” to meet their obligations. Despite this, T-Mobile has not confirmed why the delay has occurred. Previously, T-Mobile told regulators that it would keep the network running until 2023. However, internal T-Mobile documentation sets the shutdown date for the 3G UMTS network at October 2021.
According to T-Mobile, it has given Dish Network “enough time” to transition its legacy customers to T-Mobile’s network. Dish also cited “supply chain problems” and “COVID-related issues” as the reason for the delay. However, T-Mobile says that the delay will not materially change the company’s plans.
The company says that its new 5G broadband network will provide broadband speeds that are “100 to 300 times faster” than the network currently provides. Customers who switch to 5G will also benefit from enhanced public safety. This could include home security systems, medical devices and more.
T-Mobile has also informed Dish that it plans to shut down its CDMA 3G network by January 1, 2022. Dish has argued that this would cause millions of customers to lose access to service. However, T-Mobile has defended its decision, saying that the company has given Dish enough time to transition its customers.
T-Mobile has also stated that it will offer its customers free 5G handsets. However, customers who currently have a phone that does not support VoLTE (Voice over LTE) will not be able to make calls after the network is shut down. T-Mobile has urged customers with old phones to buy new devices instead. If they can’t afford to buy a new phone, they can upgrade to a better Android phone for free.
The company has said that it will redirect CDMA calls to customer care. However, customers should make sure that their new phones support VoLTE.
Dish complains that T-Mobile is rushing to shut down a network that millions of its Boost Mobile subscribers still use
During the last quarter, Dish lost 67,000 TV subscribers and 362,000 wireless subscribers. The company continues to hemorrhage money from its sagging satellite TV business. It’s no secret that Dish is unhappy with its primary network partner T-Mobile. Dish claims T-Mobile has been acting shady and anti-competitive.
Dish Network recently wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding its concerns with T-Mobile. The letter highlights various issues, including the impending closure of the Sprint CDMA network, which millions of Dish’s Boost Mobile subscribers still use.
Dish says it’s been told by T-Mobile that its legacy CDMA network will be shut down in January of 2022. That’s nine months away, and Dish says it won’t be able to meet the deadline, due to device shortages. Boost Mobile is a prepaid wireless brand that was originally part of Sprint. Boost retained millions of 3G customers when T-Mobile bought Sprint’s parent company. But Dish believes the shutdown will harm those customers, who still use the Sprint CDMA network.
Dish is also concerned that T-Mobile has been pushing for policies that will benefit small providers. It also believes T-Mobile has been flip-flopping on spectrum issues. Previously, T-Mobile supported the use of diversified spectrum ownership. But now it has taken a more conservative approach.
Dish also complains that T-Mobile is rushing to close its legacy network, which millions of Boost Mobile subscribers still use. It says that T-Mobile isn’t honoring its merger agreements, and has become a “carrier-like” company. The company is also concerned about T-Mobile’s aggressive timeline, which would cause “forced migration” for millions of Boost customers.
T-Mobile and Dish were meant to work together closely after the merger. Dish acquired Boost’s subscribers to help seed its new wireless business. However, the two companies haven’t been able to work out their issues. This is why Dish has turned to regulators for help. They are currently awaiting a decision from the FCC.
Dish and T-Mobile are also fighting over the transition to a 5G wireless network. The dish is a newcomer to the mobile broadband market but is relying heavily on T-Mobile’s legacy CDMA network to serve its customers.
AT&T will become a primary network for Dish MVNO customers
Earlier this year, Dish Network announced a 10-year network services agreement with AT&T. The deal will allow AT&T to use part of DISH’s licensed spectrum in various markets. It will also provide AT&T customers with access to Dish’s future 5G network.
The agreement is worth at least $5 billion, according to Dish. It is also not an exclusive deal, meaning that AT&T will also provide service to customers of Ting, Republic, and other carriers. AT&T also plans to provide transport services to support Dish’s 5G network.
Despite the deal, Dish still has to build out wireless facilities that cover at least 70 percent of the US population by 2025. It will have to provide a minimum percentage of its MVNO customers to AT&T.
In addition, Dish has to build out an open RAN-based 5G network to cover at least 70 percent of the US population. It will also have to provide broadband service to customers who ask for it. It also has to work with AT&T and other customers to improve the quality of its network during the transition period.
As part of the deal, AT&T will provide service to Dish’s retail wireless brands, including Boost, Xfinity, and Republic. AT&T will also provide service to Dish’s Internet service providers, including MetroNet, LightShed, and Ting. Dish also has committed to activating on AT&T’s network certain MVNO subscribers in the US who receive services through a third-party network.
AT&T has invested more than $140 billion into its wireline and wireless networks. It has plans to replace its 3G GSM network with 5G by February 2022. The agreement also includes in-market roaming. It will allow Dish’s MVNO customers to use the AT&T network in the US and will provide roaming services to support Dish’s 5G future network. AT&T has also invested in operations and network capacity.
AT&T will be the primary network services partner for Dish’s MVNO customers. AT&T will also provide transport services to support Dish’s future 5G network and will provide roaming services to support its customers. It is also the first network service partner for Dish’s Boost Mobile customers.
Verizon revealed recently that only 1% of its customers remain on CDMA
Earlier this month, Verizon revealed that only one percent of its customers remain on its CDMA network. In the meantime, the company is providing free 4G flip phones to its 3G customers. While the move may sound good, there are concerns about the quality of Verizon’s service and the way it will affect consumers. Ultimately, the company plans to retire its 3G network by the end of 2022.
The company also claims to be the only cellular provider in Vermont with a competing GSM network. The company is attempting to transition its GSM customers to CDMA when it is ready. This would enable the company to gain access to rural areas and expand its national footprint. Ultimately, the company will save money through efficiencies and enhanced economies of scale.
However, RCC’s existing GSM customers have raised concerns about local customer service and affordable no-contract rate plans. In addition, they have expressed concern about Verizon Wireless’ ability to offer comparable phones on its CDMA network. In light of these concerns, the Joint Petitioners request the Commission to require Verizon Wireless to maintain its GSM network for six years. In addition, they ask the Commission to require detailed information about Verizon’s customer transition plans. The petitioners also request that the Commission take action to address public interest issues relating to the proposed acquisition of West Virginia Wireless.
Verizon Wireless has pledged to divest RCC’s cellular operations in Vermont markets. It has also committed to maintaining its properties for at least 120 days. The company could sell its assets to a third-party buyer, or it could sell them to the divestiture trustee. In addition, the company has agreed to divest its CMAs in New York 2-Franklin and Vermont 2-Addison CMAs. In the 2-Addison CMA, Verizon Wireless will retain RCC’s cellular system in the southern half of the CMA.
However, the company’s proposal to convert RCC’s cellular licenses to CDMA technology will allow the company to take over the entire RCC network. It would also give the company the ability to expand its wireless broadband services. In the 2-Addison CMA, the company would compete head-to-head with U.S. Cellular, a Verizon competitor. The company could alter its behavior or raise prices. In addition, it would have the ability to degrade Vermont’s only GSM network.
Tmobile CDMA dish boost mobilefriedaxios
Dish Network complained in a petition to the FCC on Thursday that its cellular service provider T-Mobile is racing to shut down a network that millions of Dish’s Boost Mobile subscribers still use.
Why it matters: T-Mobile was only permitted to buy Sprint after agreeing to sell a number of assets to Dish, including its Boost prepaid division. Additionally, while it builds up its own 5G network over the next years, Dish is heavily dependent on T-Mobile for network services.
Driving the news: Although Dish’s letter to the FCC covers a number of issues, the closure of the CDMA network, which was once used by Sprint and is still used by the bulk of Dish’s 9 million Boost Mobile customers, is the main one.
T-Mobile promised to offer network services as part of the sale of Boost to Dish, but it made no commitments on how long it would keep running the CDMA service (Sprint’s legacy network).
According to sources familiar with Dish’s thinking, Dish had anticipated that T-Mobile would eventually seek to shut down that network in three to five years. Sprint, however, said in the latter part of last year that it will attempt to close it down much earlier, on Jan. 1, 2022.
What they’re saying: Dish wrote in the letter, “A forced move of this size under this expedited time frame is just not viable and may likely leave millions of Boost consumers disenchanted and without mobile coverage by January 1, 2022.
It also pointed out that Verizon, whose CDMA user base is under 1%, has repeatedly postponed its closure and now intends to do so in 2023, one year after T-Mobile.
There was no one from T-Mobile accessible to comment right away.
Between the lines: The controversy is significant because Dish will depend heavily on T-Mobile for network services for the foreseeable future as it develops its own 5G network. (Dish anticipates launching its own 5G service in its first city this year; the countrywide roll-out will take some time.)
Our thought bubble: Considering how dependent Dish is on T-Mobile, it makes sense to assume that a public argument was not the company’s first line of action and that Dish only approached regulators after failing to persuade T-Mobile to postpone the network shutdown.
Silicon Valley is fascists free
Mischaracterizing those who work in technology as secretive conservatives is both inaccurate and counterproductive.
A reporter for the New York Times decided to publish a piece revealing Scott Siskind’s real name, prompting him to delete his entire blog, Slate Star Codex, in the summer of 2020. (Siskind, who now writes at Astral Codex Ten, had long blogged under the pseudonym of Scott Alexander). Eight months later, the story has been published, and it’s just as bad as Siskind anticipated it would be. The article’s most concerning aspects, in my opinion, are the unwarranted generalisations it makes regarding Slate Star Codex readers and the ethos of the technology business. To put it frankly, I think the piece reinforces an inaccurate generalisation about the political leanings of Silicon Valley’s population. And I don’t think it’s helpful for America’s relationship with one of its signature sectors to perpetuate this misperception.
Who were the people who read Slate Star Codex?
Cade Metz, the writer of the Times piece, had this to say about the people who read Slate Star Codex:
The Rationalists, who called [Slate Star Codex] home, were an intellectual movement that sought to reevaluate the world using reason and logic. White nationalists and neofascists were among those who spoke up. According to [economic David] Friedman, “social justice warriors” are the only ones who have to fight to be heard. The minds of Silicon Valley were revealed in Slate Star Codex. It’s important to try to get into their heads since the choices made by tech businesses and their executives have far-reaching consequences. Mr. Alexander, who had previously written under his given name, Scott Siskind, and his blog became required reading due to the attractiveness of the concepts within Silicon Valley.
According to [Sam Altman], it was required reading for “the people inventing the future” in the IT field. Paul Graham, creator of Y Combinator, lent his name to the Slate Star Codex as an advocate. Patrick Collison, CEO of Stripe, a start-up that went on to raise a billion dollars, read it. Investors like Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz were among the blog’s Twitter followers. This makes for an interesting story: the technologists who are creating our future have been indoctrinated with right-wing ideologies after reading a popular blog. The problem is that I don’t think the article provides enough evidence to back up the claims it makes.
If we take Silicon Valley as an example, is it true that the Slate Star Codex was formerly considered “required reading”? According to Google, there are around 387,000 tech professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. A Reddit user in 2016 estimated that the site had 3,400 regular readers, whereas Siskind’s survey of his subscribers in 2020 received around 8,000 responses. The Times received about 7,500 signatures on a petition asking them to keep Siskind’s identity secret.
This means that even if Slate Star Codex’s regular readership was four times as great as the largest of these percentages, it still would have meant that no more than 8.3 percent of Silicon Valley, or an even smaller percentage of the broader national tech industry, could have consistently read the site. Not all of Siskind’s readers were necessarily tech-savvy, by the way. Actually, the opposite is true. Around 40% of Siskind’s 2020 survey respondents worked in the computer industry: This suggests that a disproportionate number of Slate Star Codex’s readers actually work in the tech industry. However try to avoid generalisations (or as, a Rationalist would call it, base rate neglect, or the Representativeness Heuristic). The fact that 40% of Slate Star Codex readers identified as “techies” does NOT imply that the same percentage of “techies” also read the Slate Star Codex.
That is to say, Slate Star Codex was probably just a small part of the overall technology business. Was this subset disproportionately influential, rich, or well-off? Sam Altman and Paul Graham, two heavy hitters at the YCombinator accelerator, were undoubtedly huge fans. It was likely just one of Patrick Collison’s many, many sources of intriguing occasional information; he once dubbed me “more logical than the Rationalists” (thanks, Patrick!!). I’ve also met a fair amount of VCs, and to my knowledge, none of them have ever used any of the lingo from the Slate Star Codex. So while it’s possible that many prominent figures in technology were influenced by Slate Star Codex, I think we need a lot more proof before drawing any firm conclusions.
How political is Silicon Valley?
The idea that Nazis are abundant in Silicon Valley is a persistent source of annoyance for me, and I believe that Metz’s Times report contributes to this idea. The truth is that the tech industry is dominated by leftists. Crowd Pac conducted a poll of political donors in 2014, and their responses were organized by sector. After academics and the entertainment business, the “online computer services” sector (Silicon Valley) was the third most liberal. It was far more open-minded than traditional print media. On the right, there appears to be a solitary mass of conservatives. Among them are few more well-known conservatives like Peter Thiel. Nonetheless, they stand out as radicals in a traditionally liberal field. This sample is likely to be skewed towards the wealthy because these are donors, not voters.
This is supported by data from elsewhere. OpenSecrets.org reports that in 2020, 92% of internet industry donations went to Democrats. This is supported by surveys of IT startup founders. Silicon Valley founders are overwhelmingly Democrats, despite being more skeptical of regulation and unions than the average Democrat (which is to be expected, given their occupations). They are even more progressive on social issues (gay marriage, abortion, gun control, etc.) than the typical college-educated Democrat. Despite the fact that it seems to go against their class interests, they are nevertheless big supporters of government redistribution. They also rank lower on measures of authoritarianism and racial hostility than the typical Democratic voter base. To sum up, tech startup founders are your typical liberal nerds.
Everyone who has any kind of regular contact with those working in the tech industry is already well aware of this. Black Lives Matter protests had widespread support from the tech industry and its top executives. After the failed coup attempt on January 6th, they also effectively blocked former President Trump and many of his core supporters from using the internet. In addition, employees in the computer industry are continually pressuring their managers to become even more liberal than they already are. No fascists will feel comfortable here. As a technology correspondent, Metz should be well-versed on this information. Thus, he should understand that a decade after the publication of Slate Star Codex, technology has not become fascist. Hence, the narrative appeal of a solitary Rationalist site quietly spreading right-wing beliefs among Silicon Valley’s princes has not yet been borne out by the evidence
If Silicon Valley as a whole isn’t right-wing, then what about the Rationalists?
My evidence here is entirely anecdotal. In general, I get the impression that they are on the periphery of the technology sector. Siskind practices psychiatry as a profession. Only big Rationalist I directly know, Julia Galef, is a podcaster. I was able to identify a quant trader, a lawyer, a Wall Street analyst, the founder of a nonprofit, a social worker, a language interpreter, and several people whose only apparent job is working in the Effective Altruism movement, in addition to the philosopher Will MacAskill, who is one of the movement’s leaders. In fact, Eliezer Yudkowsky, who is sort of an A.I. researcher, is the only big Rationalist figure I could locate who is actually in tech.
The Rationalists appear to be on the fence about certain key political issues. The proponents of Effective Altruism seem to be liberals (Update: Matt Yglesias has a great post that goes into some of what they want). Both Yudkowsky and Galef, at heart, are uninvolved, moderate types. And Siskind, though he’d probably be angry with me for saying this, seems to be a conservative, or whatever passes for a conservative in this odd new period of politics. His criticism of Black Lives Matter and (particularly) the feminist movement places him on the political right in the San Francisco Bay Area. (Update: and as others have noted, he is not coy about holding some right-wing beliefs in private.) IQ, school vouchers, and the employment of women are just a few of the topics on which we’ve disagreed in the past. The Rationalists don’t strike me as particularly political, though. Instead, they appear preoccupied with their own brand of arcane lore. Some Rationalists are upset with me because I sometimes find this esoterica to be quite silly. Such is life. My impression of Rationalism is not that it is a fascist or secretly fascist movement, despite what I would call Siskind’s conservatism.
In regards to the Nazis who frequent Scott’s comment section, I believe he should have banned them a long time ago. However, I haven’t seen any proof that Nazi ideas have taken hold among the Rationalists, and I haven’t seen any proof that Rationalist ideas have had more than a very small influence on the technological world either.
To sum up, the story of a conspiracy to infiltrate the minds of the future’s most influential people with fascist ideas spread through Rationalist blogs is enticing, but it’s not well supported by the facts. Tech entrepreneurs are your typical liberal nerds, and Rationalism is just a small subculture that obsesses over Bayes’ Rule, utilitarianism, and robots. While I agree that the tech industry could improve in some areas, I do not believe this to be one of them.
