Dish Network Given Ok to Go 4G LTE

The FCC has finally voted in favor of Dish Network's request to use its AWS-4 wireless spectrum for 4G LTE data services.

The FCC previously restricted that 40 MHz of satellite spectrum from being used for land-based broadband

The FCC also approved a proposal that could lead to the auction of the H block of spectrum in 2013. Dish would prefer this spectrum go unused as a buffer for its own, but other wireless companies like Sprint are reportedly interested in it.

Recent rumors have circulated about partnerships with Google.
