Dish, a direct-broadcast satellite provider is building a 5G network using the latest technologies that come at lower costs and offer new services.

“We have an objective to achieve 20% of population coverage but June and we are well on track to achieve that. We have beta users on our network for some time, testing our network. We just have not declared commercial launch and you will see that in the coming weeks,” said Dish Chief Commercial Officer Stephen Bye.

Dish while forging ahead with its goal of setting up network infrastructure in dozens of cities faces the supply chain issues affecting organizations across the world.

Despite the supply chain issues, Dish however has every component needed to reach its target coverage for June.
