dish upgradeIn this day and age, everyone wants fast phones, fast cars, and high-speed internet. Why not fast television? I have been with dish for about 6 months now and I could not be happier or so I thought.  I have heard so many great things about the Hopper 3 and I could not wait to try it out. Dish had me covered and upgraded me to the new Hopper 3.  The entire process went smoothly. I made my appointment with Dish for the upgrade. They called me about an hour before they arrived to let me know they will be there on time.  The technician was super nice and very knowledgeable. They installed a new interface on the actual dish so I would have 4k speeds and upgraded my boxes.  2
