Dish has agreed to buy all of Sprint's prepaid service. That is Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Sprint Prepaid and Assurance Wireless.

T-Mobile will support them for up to 7 years on their network, until they can build out a new 5 G network, and they have stated that they will become a national facilities-based wireless carrier serving 70 percent of the U.S. population by June 2023.

I think the 70% statistic is a telling statement in four years. The urban population of the USA is 80% and is confined to about 4% of the land area. Any network should service the entire urban population at a minimum.

Since Dish owns SlingTV I presume they will offer some bundles with that service. But since Sling TV just bundles channels owned by other corporations, I should think there would be some danger of the major players like Walt Disney and AT&T pulling out of Sling TV as they begin selling their own streaming services.
