US Cellular to launch 4G network in March
03 February 2012
Mobile operator’s LTE network will cover 25% of existing customers in select cities, says CEO Mary Dillon
US Cellular and its partner King Street Wireless have teamed up to launch a LTE network in March 2012. The network will cover 25% of US Cellular’s customers — in parts of the states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Maine, North Carolina, Texas and Oklahoma.
The LTE launch will coincide with the launch of the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G mobile tablet followed shortly by the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator 4G smartphone, the operator said in statement. The company said that it will announce the next wave of market launches later in February.
Mary Dillon, president and CEO of US Cellular, said: “This 4G LTE network builds upon our industry-leading network satisfaction and is the only one that comes with a valuable rewards programme and other unique benefits like overage protection and battery swap that make our customers the happiest in wireless.” GTB
