Boost Infinite Coverage

Boost Infinite is owned by Dish.

It is a postpaid carrier intended to compete directly with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.

Boost Infinite uses a combination of Dish's own 5G network, AT&T's 4G LTE and 5G networks, and T-Mobile's 4G LTE and 5G networks to provide coverage.

Here is how it works:

  • If you live in an area where Dish's 5G network is available and VoNR (voice over new radio) is turned on, then you will be activated on the Boost Wireless network. Dish is branding the Boost Wireless network as "America's Smart Network." If you are activated on the Boost Wireless network, then your phone will be able to automatically switch between the Dish 5G network, the AT&T network, and the T-Mobile network for coverage. Your phone will default to using Dish 5G for coverage and will only switch to AT&T or T-Mobile in areas where Dish 5G is not available.
  • If you live in an area where Dish 5G is not available, or your phone is not compatible with the Dish 5G network, then you will be activated on either the AT&T or the T-Mobile network. You will be activated on whichever network provides better service in your area. Your phone will only use the network it is activated on for coverage. It will not have the ability to automatically switch between networks.

Dish's 5G network currently covers 70% of the U.S. population.

Check out our Dish Wireless coverage map to see exactly where the service is available.

For this article, we will be focusing on Boost Infinite riding on the AT&T network for coverage, as that is the network most new customers will likely be activated on.

What network does Boost Infinite use?

Boost Infinite rides on AT&T's 4G LTE and 5G networks for coverage.

Dish, the parent company of Boost Infinite, also has an agreement with T-Mobile.

It's possible Boost Infinite may use the T-Mobile network in the future to provide service where the AT&T network doesn't have service.

Additionally, Boost Infinite will definitely use Dish's 5G network for service once the network is ready.

Boost Infinite 5G Coverage

Boost Infinite 5G coverage map

Boost Infinite uses AT&T's 5G network for coverage.

Luckily for Boost Infinite customers, AT&T has the second largest 5G network.

AT&T 5G provides service to over 295 million people, or over 89% of the U.S. population. It covers 41.4% of the land area of the U.S. That is a bit less than T-Mobile 5G, which covers 49.0% of the U.S., but over 2.7x more coverage than Verizon 5G, which only covers 14.7% of the U.S.

AT&T primarily uses low-band 5G to achieve such a big coverage area.

Low-band 5G gets about the same data speeds as LTE.

You're less likely to see impressive multi-gigabit speeds when connected to 5G on Boost Infinite, but you will still have excellent 5G coverage.

Boost Infinite LTE Coverage

Boost Infinite LTE coverage map

Boost Infinite offers nationwide LTE coverage on AT&T's LTE network.
