US Cellular just announced that it will be expanding its current 4G LTE coverage in the United States. Specifically, the regional carrier will be adding another 600 4G LTE cell sites in 10 states. US Cellular is expecting to complete its expansion by the end of the year.
The ten states targeted in US Cellular's network expansion include California, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. If you want to know if 4G LTE is coming to your area, you can head on to US Cellular's website.
The addition of 600 new cell sites across 10 states should be good news for customers of US Cellular. Upon its completion, the expansion should bring 4G LTE connectivity to over 2,000 cities and towns.
Needless to say, the US Cellular's network expansion should further broaden and strengthen its current coverage. By the end of 2015, 98 percent of its current customers should be able to access high speed data. As of this writing, 94 percent of the regional carrier's customers already enjoy it, and but it appears it is going to get better in the next few months.
Moreover, US Cellular seems to be focusing on bringing 4G LTE connectivity to areas that other wireless carriers in the US are ignoring. As far as tactics are concerned, it sure does look like a sound strategy. By employing this approach, not only is US Cellular expanding its coverage, it is also grabbing new customers, especially those based in areas where 4G LTE connectivity was previously non-existent.
And it certainly helps that 4G LTE has been steadily gaining traction over the last few years. Users nowadays need better connectivity for their wireless needs, which now no longer consists of just voice calls and text messaging, but also Internet surfing, app downloading, video chatting, and video streaming, among many others.
Once completed, US Cellular's network expansion should further enhance its brand. Despite being known as a regional carrier, US Cellular is the fifth largest full service wireless carrier in the United States. While its competitors are focusing on penetrating major metropolitan areas, US Cellular has managed to serve both big cities and rural communities.
