"Professional technicians from DISH will install ruggedized outdoor routers with high-gain antennas just like they install outdoor satellite dishes"
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Sept. 24, 2014 – DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) now offers Corpus Christi residents a new, affordable option for reliable high-speed Internet providing LTE service to the home with no contract, free installation, and no equipment to buy.
This fixed wireless broadband trial follows a previous announcement from DISH and Sprint Corporation (NYSE: S).
“DISH has partnered with Sprint to bring Corpus Christi a new high-speed Internet service with competitive 4G LTE speeds, available in more areas, and at a better price when bundled with our award-winning TV service,” said David Zufall, DISH vice president of wireless.
DISH High-Speed Internet, with download speeds of 10Mbps, is available for $29.99 per month when bundled with a qualifying package of DISH’s award-winning satellite TV service, or $39.99 as standalone Internet.
“Professional technicians from DISH will install ruggedized outdoor routers with high-gain antennas just like they install outdoor satellite dishes,” said Zufall. “The result is high-speed Internet even to homes that currently have slower speeds or no Internet available to them at all.”
DISH additionally offers customers the option to receive a free WiFi router at installation, creating a WiFi cloud inside the home to connect all devices -- from tablets and phones to computers and smart devices.
Customers receive the 2.5 GHz LTE signal from Sprint network sites.
