The company’s new fixed wireless service is now available to subscribers of its satellite TV service. It’s also offering free 5G phones to early adopters.
Dish Network has launched its 5G network in Las Vegas, United States, bringing broadband speeds up to 20 times faster than 4G LTE. The company also announced that it will give away free 5G smartphones to early adopters who sign up for an unlimited plan.
The new service is available at no additional charge to existing DISH customers with a qualifying package, including Dish’s Sling TV streaming service and Hopper DVR. Dish says that over time, it will make the service available to more customers across the country.
Dish offers two different types of plans: a $60 monthly option that includes unlimited data with speeds up to 300 Mbps; and a $70 plan with 2 GB of data at speeds up to 20 Mbps. Both plans come with free mobile hotspot data included, which lets you share your connection with other devices like laptops or tablets through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections.
