Dish Nears Launch of Mobile Carrier to Take on AT&T, Verizon

Dish Network Corp. is another step closer to launching its new nationwide wireless service — Boost Infinite — after opening online customer sign-ups on Thursday.

The company is taking the sign-ups on a new website that lets potential subscribers register for more information. It’s the latest move in what’s been a challenging transition from satellite-TV provider to 5G wireless company — a shift that accelerated when Dish acquired the prepaid mobile service Boost from T-Mobile US Inc. in 2020.
