Operator: Good day and welcome to The DISH Network Corporation Q3 2023 Earnings Conference Call. Today's conference is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Tim Messner, EVP and General Counsel. Please go ahead, sir.

Operator: [Operator Instructions] Our first analyst question comes from Walter Piecyk with LightShed. Please go ahead. Walter, your line is open. Please go ahead. Walter, if you could please check your mute button. We're not getting a response from your line. I am not hearing a response. We will move to our next question. And our next question comes from Michael Rollins with Citi. Please go ahead.
Michael Rollins: I was curious, if you could talk more about the retail results for wireless in the quarter. And can you frame what's happening on the subscriber side? What's happening in terms of the EBITDA burn, and then break out the Boost Infinite component of those results. Thanks.
Mike Kelly: Good morning. This is Mike Kelly. On the Boost wireless side, I would say this is my first full quarter on the job. There's a lot of discipline that we brought back into the sales channel over the quarter, which resulted in less net ads than we expected. We put discipline back into the sales process that I felt was necessary. We focused on putting devices in the hands of our customers that will load on the 5G network going forward. We realigned our dealer compensation for the period with a goal of acquiring profitable customers going forward. And we put back in control that we felt was necessary for profitable customers going forward. Paul, if you want to talk a little bit about the EBITDA?
