Dish, T-Mobile US Alter Service Agreement After Talks With DOJ

Dish Network and T-Mobile US inked an amendment to a master network services agreement signed in 2020 which boosts the newcomer’s ability to compete in the retail marketplace.

The original agreement gave Dish Network’s retail wireless brands including Boost Mobile access to T-Mobile’s 5G network.

Their revised agreement contained financial and operational changes including improved pricing and enhanced roaming for Dish Network’s 5G customers in return for an annual minimum revenue commitment.

T-Mobile CMO Mike Katz stated the revised agreement locks-in a multi-billion revenue commitment for the operator’s business.

John Swieringa, president and COO of Dish Wireless, noted the new agreement would enable its parent company to be more competitive.

The new terms require Department of Justice (DoJ) approval by 14 August to come into effect.
