Dish’s Project Genesis Expands To 128 Cities

Today, Project Genesis, Dish’s 5G service powered by the company’s new network, allegedly went live in over 120 cities. Previously, the service was only officially available in Las Vegas.

Here’s the tweet from Stephen Stokols, CEO of Boost Mobile (Boost is owned by Dish):

With service going live in the new cities, Dish is poised to meet a commitment it made with the FCC to cover 20% of the US population by mid-June.

The Project Genesis website has a list of cities where service is available. I don’t know how comprehensively Dish covers the included cities. As of today, service is available in 128 cities by Dish’s counting:

  1. what a coincidence, one day before they were having to pay hefty fines.

    also, there is all kinds of issues trying to actually sign up for the service.

    my guess is dish “launched” this to avoid penalty, but they are no way ready or able to roll this out to all these cities they claim.

    1. Yeah, this launch is definitely in response to the FCC deadline.

      Completely speculating here, but I’d guess Dish had a fair amount of hardware deployed outside of Las Vegas for a while. The company was probably purposely holding off on actually going live in more cities though–perhaps because service wouldn’t be terribly reliable for people within the 100+ new cities.

      Possibly of interest: Sascha Segan at PC Mag shared some anecdotes about service quality from a Project Genesis tester.
