Dish Network Corp. has purchased spectrum and other wireless assets divested as part of the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. Dish plans to operate a nationwide all-5G wireless network, as well operate Boost Mobile and Ting Mobile. The objective is that Dish will eventually operate a fourth competitive wireless network.

Boost Mobile Coverage on the T-Mobile Network:
(5G may not be available to Boost customers)
Dish also owns Ting Mobile and for now will maintain the Ting name with coverage as good as or better than before. New Ting customers will acess the new T-Mobile network which includes former Sprint coverage, and eventually be transferred to the new Dish wireless 5G network, if any. Existing Ting customers will keep their current network for the foreseeable future.
New Ting customers will access the same network as Boost, shown above, with eventual transition to the new Dish Wireless 5G network.

Dish owns this wireless spectrum and is reported to be building their own cellular network in these areas. The larger the holding, the greater the download capacity. Additionally, some 800 MHz Sprint spectrum will be sold to Dish but that transaction will not be completed for 3 years after the closing of the T-Mobile-Sprint merger. Map source: Allnet Insights.
