Not wanting to be left behind, the fifth biggest wireless carrier in the United States has decided to add a unlimited data plan for its prepaid customers. The new unlimited data option from US Cellular for prepaid users comes with a price of $70, and is an addition to its current $35 per month (which includes 1 gigabyte of data) and $45 per month (which includes 5 gigabytes of data) offerings.
With all the attention that the Big Four (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint) has been receiving with regards to their respective unlimited data offerings, not many may have noticed that the fifth biggest wireless carrier in the United States has also joined the club.
The last few months have seen intensifying competition in the world of unlimited data, with Verizon Wirelessre-introducing its unlimited data option (Verizon Unlimited) more than a week ago, while other major mobile operators in America also making their respective countermoves.
Without much fancy, US Cellular has quietly made some changes to its existing Shared Connect plans by boosting the gigabytes featured in each option, and accordingly, updating some of the pricing as well.

Google has decided to team up with American wireless carrier US Cellular in expanding the current coverage of its Project Fi mobile service. As explained by Evan Jacobs, one of the product managers for Project Fi, via a blog post published this week, Google is planning to deploy the extended coverage to all users in the next few weeks. On top of the coverage expansion, users can also expect improved connection speed and consistency in network quality.
