US Cellular has plans to launch a brand new 4G LTE network for unlocked cell phone users by the time the holiday season rolls around this year and will likely offer a number of new devices for their brand new network just in time for Christmas. With other companies moving quickly to roll out more powerful solutions, it appears that US Cellular does not to loose ground and will be rolling out more highly powered networks of their own to draw in more users.
Their plans were outlined and announced today. The first regions that receive the new network will be around sometime during the holiday season, with other plans stating that they would like to extend their new network across the nation. At first, only a few select cities will be receiving the upgrade. These cities could include Milwaukee, Madison and Des Moines, according to the announcement that was made today. Their initial roll out is said to cover around 25% of the US, with future updates to the network expanding their reach.
In order to use the new LTE network, you will of course need to own a device that is compatible with the LTE network. As of right now, the company is not currently offering compatible phones, but you can bet that they will find a way to release some before the network is even close to being launched, although there have been no announcements about that thus far.
US Cellular is aggressively expanding their capabilities after the competition has also done so in recent months. Look for them to quickly roll out new areas after their initial run is tested and they have a better idea of what to expect. The roll out is expected in mid to late fourth quarter of 2011.
