You should read this article about Boost and Dish

New Boost Logo - NWIDAMonica Alleven has a great piece on FireceWireless (link below) on what Dish is “discovering” about the prepaid (and postpaid) wireless business in the US – and apparently, it’s opening some eyes there on how “backwards” it is.

A quote from Charlie Ergen:

“There are some of those customers that perhaps the way Sprint accounted for them … The way they ran that business wouldn’t make sense for us. We certainly have some cleaning up to do there,”

Monica also touches on the future plans of Dish Wireless, and how they view having MVNOs on their network.

Translation: “We didn’t get unlimited data as part of our roaming agreement in the settlement, and so there’s no way we can do unlimited gigabytes on Boost anymore – at least until we have our own network.”

I do think it might be a benefit to just say that in plain English, and not make it look like an accounting game.

As to MVNOs… The underdog is always going to want MVNOs more than the folks at the top. This is why my company litigated at the FCC to compel T-Mobile to commit to working fairly, on market terms, with MVNO newcomers. It’s also why we pushed so ardently for the DISH deal before ultimately supporting the merger.
