What is it? Is it a partnership with a phone company and Dish?

It's satellite internet.

Well, there is Dishnet Broadband, which is satellite internet, and then there is Dishnet Wireline, which is Dish tv, and phone/internet through a telco that E* bought out, all serviced through Dish.
The postings on this site are my own and don't represent Dish's positions, strategies, or opinions.

I don't know what the details are for the new DishNet Broadband, but if it is anything like the crappy Starband Internet satellite service we had for a few years (before switching to Wild Blue), they can keep it. Even though I never thought it would ever come to pass in our very remote & rural area, we finally did get DSL service from the local telephone company a couple of years ago. And even though we have sub-standard performance from our DSL (since we are at 21,000 feet from the local switch house), it still beats the pants off of either of the two satellite services we had, mostly due to the inherent latency issues with satellite Internet (independent of the provider).

It has been a disappointment since it wasn't what was expected. In most cases it is most like Wild Blue and Hughes Net.

It is HughesNet, Dish bought them out about a year ago. Speeds are typicallly 3-10 Mbps down, 266k up. Latency issues still apply. ;)

Since we already have a discussion on this, I think it makes sense to close this one... Please continue here:
