Dish 5G VoNR
The Boost Wireless Network, which already provides 5G broadband service to over 73 percent of the US population, is now live with 5G voice in multiple markets, including Billings, MT; Cincinnati, OH; Columbia, SC; Denver, CO; Fayetteville, NC; Jacksonville, FL; Minneapolis, MN; Philadelphia, PA; Portland, OR; Shreveport, LA; Tucson, AZ; and Washington, DC.
DISH Wireless commented, "Our network covers over 73 percent of the US population with broadband, and we haven't stopped there. The Boost Wireless Network is the largest commercial deployment of 5G voice, or VoNR, in the world. It already reaches more than 140 million Americans in over 85 markets. The continued rollout of VoNR markets every month allows us to compete at scale as the nation's 4th wireless carrier."
