Dish dives into broadband internet

Dish Network announced this morning they’ll dive into the Internet service industry by launching “dishNet” this coming Monday. The satellite Internet service will be marketed towards US residents living in areas where broadband isn’t offered, who number approximately 15 million according to the FCC. Dish’s dishNet service will provide download speeds up to 10Mbps, and cost about $50 per month when bundled with satellite television service. (A less expensive service will cost $40 per month with download speeds up to 10Mbps). Dish says they will also offer dishNet as a standalone product (without TV service) for $50-$60 per month, depending on broadband speed. Dish currently offers TV/Internet bundles, but relies on partnerships with broadband providers. Dish Network’s dishNet service will be available in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
