Right now, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon lead the way in the wireless industry. In recent years, other companies have tried hard to grab a piece of the market and compete with them.
Dish was one of those companies.
But now, Dish is ready to move forward and make some changes.
Under this merger, EchoStar will now take charge of the combined company and play a vital role in reshaping DISH’s path in the competitive telecommunications field.
The new company will make use of DISH’s satellite technology, streaming services, and nationwide 5G network capabilities, covering more than 70 percent of the U.S.
For Sling TV customers, there’s no need to worry right away.
DISH has been gradually moving into 5G and wireless services, while also improving its satellite and streaming services.
Despite focusing on 5G, DISH is still committed to its TV services, which bring in significant revenue.
While it’s unclear how the merger will affect Sling TV in the long run, DISH is likely aiming to diversify its revenue sources in response to the challenges posed by cord-cutting trends
