Dish nears launch of mobile service, taking on AT&T and Verizon

Dish Network Corp. will be another step closer to launching its new nationwide wireless service — Boost Infinite — when it starts taking online customer sign-ups as early as Monday, according to marketing materials for the launch seen by Bloomberg.

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 pay-TV provider to 5G wireless company — a shift that got underway when Dish acquired the prepaid mobile service Boost from T-Mobile US Inc. in 2020.
