The Project Genesis website launched back in mid-2021 but has just been a placeholder to collect zip codes, email addresses, and phone numbers of potential future customers.

- Project Genesis is the name for Dish Network's upcoming 5G network and was born out of the merger agreement between Sprint and T-Mobile.
- The Las Vegas debut will be followed by rollouts in other cities later in 2022.
- Project Genesis is attempting to build a 5G network from scratch and it will be a long time before they have anything close to nationwide coverage.
