US Cellular Announces First Markets For 5G in Iowa and Wisconsin

US Cellular customers in Iowa and Wisconsin will be the first to have access to the benefits of the company´s 5G network, beginning in the first quarter of 2020, the company said.

The company´s initial 5G deployment will be on its 600 MHz spectrum and will provide customers with faster data speeds, a more responsive mobile experience and the ability to connect more devices to the network at the same time.

This is the first phase of the company´s planned multi-year network expansion for 5G and is a result of previous network technology investments to modernize equipment and software.
