CIS Communications is proud to announce the completion of DISH Wireless’ colocation onto our Mapaville tower site, which is located in Jefferson County, MO. In 2019, DISH entered an agreement as part of the Sprint/T-Mobile merger in which DISH would acquire Sprint’s prepaid wireless businesses, including Boost Mobile. In 2020, DISH officially purchased Boost Mobile from T-Mobile for $1.4 billion. With this purchase it officially launched its wireless business, DISH Wireless, LLC, offering prepaid service through the Boost brand as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) on the T-Mobile network. DISH also intends to have the first standalone, 5G-only network in the United States. In 2021, DISH signed a $5 billion contract with AT&T to become a new AT&T MVNO within approximately two years. As a result, DISH wireless customers will be able to roam on AT&T’s 4G and 5G network while DISH continuous building its 5G-only network.
