U.S. Cellular, in conjunction with its partner, King Street Wireless, launched a 4G LTE network in more than 30 new markets Monday, including Hagerstown, Cumberland and Oakland in Maryland.
The November rollout expands the 4G LTE footprint in select cities in Iowa, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Oklahoma, and brings 4G LTE coverage to some of U.S. Cellular’s leading markets in Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
4G LTE speeds enhance the wireless experience, allowing customers to begin watching a movie in seconds and enjoying smoother video streaming with little to no buffering.
Video chatting is improved, as well. With 4G LTE capable smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Metrix TM and the Samsung Galaxy Note II, customers have the ability to talk and access the Internet at the same time. Additionally, U.S. Cellular offers 4G LTE-capable data devices, including the Huawei UML397 4G LTE USB Wireless Modem and the Samsung SCH-LC11 Mobile Hotspot, allowing customers to experience data speeds up to 10 times faster.
The 4G LTE network builds on the 3G data services that U.S. Cellular customers already enjoy on the carrier’s nationwide network.
