U.S. Cellular today revealed its 4G LTE expansion plans for 2015.
U.S. Cellular says that it will add more than 600 4G LTE cell sites in 2015 and expand existing LTE service in 10 states. The 10 states that’ll see additional U.S. Cellular LTE coverage are California, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia. USCC says that more than 2,000 new cities will get 4G LTE, and that by the end of 2015, 98 percent of U.S. Cellular customers will be covered by its LTE network.
More LTE coverage is always a good thing to have, and it sounds like U.S. Cellular is going to give its customers quite a bit more 4G access in 2015. U.S. Cellular hasn’t provided any information on when these expansions will go live, but I’m sure that we’ll see them peppered throughout the remainder of the year.
