ENGLEWOOD, Colo. April 2, 2008 DISH Network® (NASDAQ: DISH) announced today that they will open a new customer care center in Phoenix, AZ. The facility will offer DISH Network customers the expertise of seasoned agents, including approximately 400 technical support representatives and 40 support staff.
