Sprint offers wireless and landline communications products and services to individuals and businesses in the United States.

Sprint and Dish (NASDAQ:DISH) are teaming up on a project that could bring broadband Internet to people living in remote areas with limited access, the two said in an announcement on Tuesday. “With millions underserved by inadequate broadband, the potential to bring a high-speed fixed wireless solution is very compelling to both Dish and Sprint,” Tom Cullen, Dish executive vice president of corporate development, said in a press release. “We both bring distinct skills, not the least of which for Dish is a workforce of professional technicians who visit thousands of homes every day performing professional installations for both video and broadband.”
