broadband1 service to over 70 percent of
the U.S. population, giving more than 240 million Americans access

milestone for DISH and the U.S. telecom industry, as we designed,

continued support and efforts of our partners as DISH continues to
lead the industry in Open RAN deployment."

role in the transformation of America's wireless infrastructure and
