US Cellular rolls out 4G LTE to 30 new markets in 11 states

updated 07:23 am EDT, Thu November 1, 2012

November 5th upgrade followed by further expansion

US Cellular will be increasing its LTE network coverage in the US on Monday. The upgrade on November 5th will see the carrier expand 4G LTE signal to a further 30 new markets across 11 states, while further expansion plans to a number of other markets have also been announced, though without a firm schedule.

The November rollout will reach cities in Iowa, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia, but it is not clear which cities will receive the LTE signal. Future expansion is planned in Rockford, Ill., Medforf, Ore., Yakima, Wash., and Knoxville, Tenn.

The carrier launched its LTE services in March, initially covering six states and around 25-percent of its customer base. The relatively young LTE network rollout has a small LTE-ready selection to match, with US Cellular offering the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Metrix.
