    Dish and nTelos start testing fixed LTE broadband in rural Virginia

    Dish has so far had to be content with offering broadband over its existing satellite network, but the company has made no secret of wanting a terrestrial service.

The test run supplies 2.5GHz wireless internet access to a handful of homes near Afton and Waynesboro, with speeds hovering at a respectable 20Mbps to 50Mbps. Neither provider is ready to talk about where the trial goes from here, although Dish is ambitious enough to see all of an underserved rural America as its potential customer base.
