Samsung and Dish Agreed to Collaborate on 5G Radios and Phones

”This is a greater than a billion dollar agreement for Samsung Networks,” Alok Shah, vice president at Samsung, told Reuters. ”We will be delivering our first products to Dish later this year”. Dish already has Taiwan’s Microelectronics Technology Inc (MTI) and Japan’s Fujitsu as suppliers for 5G radios. Dish is building a 5G network using latest technologies that promises to lower costs and bring in new services, and has tied up with companies ranging from Amazon and Intel to smaller ones such as Altiostar and Mavenir.

Samsung has agreed to provide equipment to Dish for its planned 5G network in the United States on a multi-year basis, marking one of the company’s largest radio purchases since its major Verizon contract in 2020. With a $6.6 billion deal with Verizon, Samsung established itself as a rival to leading telecoms equipment providers Nokia and Ericsson in the United States, and the arrangement with Dish further solidifies its position.

While Dish has not launched a commercial network yet, it has committed to regulators to cover 20% of the U.S. population by June, and at least 70% of the population by mid-2023. ”We have an objective to achieve 20% of population coverage by June and we are well on track to achieve that,” Dish Chief Commercial Officer Stephen Bye said in an interview.

”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,” he said. Dish, which has been setting up network infrastructure in dozens of cities, has also faced supply chain issues that have hurt companies globally, including in the telecom industry.

Bye said supply chains had been tough for 12-18 months and the challenges were not going to go away in the next couple of months. But Dish has all the components to reach its June coverage target. Dish is also testing its 5G network using Samsung Galaxy S22 phones and plans to continue using the phones throughout the network deployment process.

”We are working with other device vendors and you can look at the Boost website and you will see clearly we have relationships with a lot of device vendors,” Bye said. Boost Mobile, a prepaid wireless phone brand owned by Dish, lists phones from Samsung, Motorola and Apple on its website.
