DISH Statement on Passage of the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act

The following can be attributed to Jeff Blum, DISH Executive Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs:

“DISH wants to thank Majority Leader Schumer and Senator Young for their hard work successfully shepherding the bipartisan U.S. Innovation and Competition Act through the Senate.

This important legislation will support U.S. ingenuity for years to come, including new wireless network technologies that DISH is eager to bring to life for the American people. The critical funding to promote and deploy Open RAN innovation from Senator Warner and Senator Rubio’s USA Telecommunications Act will spur American job creation, diversify the telecom equipment supply chain, enhance network security and boost our nation’s efforts to lead the global race to 5G (and beyond).

We urge swift passage of USICA in the House of Representatives.”
