T-Mobile's 3G CDMA shutdown is being pushed back in order to give "partners" more time to transition customers off the network.
Dish's Boost Mobile is launching an exclusive new 5G phone for $279 called the Celero5G. If you buy the phone before 10/31/2021, you also get 12 months of free unlimited data, talk, and text.
In a letter to Dish and T-Mobile, the DOJ told the two carriers that they must take all available steps to migrate CDMA customers before the network is shut down on January 1, 2022.
Dish customers will have access to AT&T's 4G and 5G network for 10 years following the new deal.
T-Mobile and Dish want to free up the 12GHz spectrum for 5G, but T-Mobile's approach would strip Dish of its holdings to be auctioned off.
