Samsung has signed a multi-year deal with Dish to supply the company 5G radios, and phones.

“This is greater than a billion-dollar agreement for Samsung Networks. We will be delivering our first products to Dish later this year,” Alok Shah, vice president at Samsung.

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.
