LITTLETON, Colo. - Boost Wireless Network, operated by DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ:DISH) (NASDAQ: SATS), has announced the expansion of its 5G voice service, known as VoNR (Voice over New Radio), now reaching over 200 million people across the United States. This development highlights DISH's ongoing efforts to enhance connectivity options for Americans as the country's fourth major wireless carrier.

The network's 5G voice and data capabilities are designed to work with the latest technology, ensuring compatibility with top-tier 5G smartphones, including the iPhone 15 series, Samsung (KS:005930) Galaxy S24, and the motorola razr. In January 2024, Boost introduced seven new devices compatible with its 5G network, aimed at its retail wireless subscribers.

John Swieringa, president of Technology and COO at EchoStar, expressed DISH's commitment to the transformative impact of communication technology. "As the 4th nationwide wireless network, we are bringing competition to the wireless industry and more choice to U.S. consumers," Swieringa said. He emphasized the company's pride in offering 5G voice services to a vast American audience, in line with the network's growth and development goals.

Since its inception in 2019, the Boost Wireless Network has achieved several milestones, including being recognized as the world's first standalone 5G Open RAN cloud-based network. It is also a leader in 5G Voice or VoNR technology, with the largest commercial deployment of this advanced technology to date.

The network's performance has been noted for its fast download speeds and effective handovers, as per a report by Signals Research Group on January 16, 2024. These features are indicative of the network's readiness to meet current and future customer demands.
