DISH and Artemis are partnering up to make cell phone internet speeds 1,000 times faster than 4G. Artemis is a startup company, founded in 2011, who has been working on pCell – advancing 4G and LTE together.
The pCell technology would solve the issue of cell service getting bogged down in highly populated areas such as NYC, sporting events, concerts, etc. The idea is to replace the current cell towers method of a few towers serving a big area with a completely 180 degree approach – deploy a massive number of boxes called “pWaves” that will provide much better service to smaller areas.

This is a pretty strategic move by DISH who is “rumored” to be working on providing TV service through the H-block of spectrum they’ve recently purchased. If Artemis is able to accomplish this new pCell technology, DISH would then be able to offer TV service quickly over the “pWaves” and likely not require a satellite dish for the signal.
