Dish’s attempts to disrupt Sprint’s buyout with SoftBank may not have come to fruition, but apparently that doesn’t mean the two companies can’t make up and sign a deal. The two are teaming up to test out broadband service that pick ups wireless signals from Sprint’s 4G LTE network and delivers them into homes.
Sprint Corporation (NYSE: S) and DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH) announced today they plan to jointly develop and deploy a fixed wireless broadband service, on a trial basis, in Corpus Christi, TX that will be available in the middle of 2014. The service will initially be available in limited areas of Corpus Christi with a plan to expand into additional markets in the future.
